Film4 Summer Screen

at Somerset House
08 – 21 Aug 2019
Full line-up announced and tickets on sale in May
The Edmond J. Safra
Fountain Court

Join in the ultimate cinematic experience under the starry sky when the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court transforms into a beautiful open-air cinema. Over fourteen summer evenings, London’s largest outdoor screen and cinema-quality surround sound ensure you experience every look and every line of every film.

The 2019 line-up includes the phenomenal Black Panther, the mighty Marvel superhero epic starring Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan and Letitia Wright; the defining film of 90s teen culture Clueless; Francis Lee’s God’s Own Country, a grittily tender love story between a young Yorkshire farmer and a Romanian migra­­nt worker; and This is England, Shane Meadows’ bold, unsentimental portrait of 1980s Midlands skinheads.

One of the very first outdoor cinemas in the UK, Film4 Summer Screen celebrates its 200th screening in 2019. New this year, you can now select from a range of seating options in the courtyard, including bean bags and director’s chairs.

Film4 Summer Screen also offers the chance to get closer to the people that create cinema with the return of the Behind the Screen talk series.

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

One of the most sublime movie moments I've had. Open skies, open hearts, warm reception - it felt like the dream of how watching movies is meant to be.

Director, Richard Curtis
