Film4 Summer Screen, Choose Your Experience

Film4 Summer Screen | Choose Your Experience

This year we have an expanded range of seating options and dining experiences to suit everyone’s idea of a fun night out.


For safety and ensuring an enjoyable experience for all, audience members will not be permitted to bring their own chairs, inflatables or beanbags of any size. You may bring your own food and drinks into the courtyard, however glass bottles are not permitted.

When purchasing your film ticket you will need to select from the following seating options:

Picnic Style (from £20.75, inclusive of booking fee)
Each evening, the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court transforms into an open air cinema. For the bonafide Film4 Summer Screen experience, cosy up with your friends picnic-style; bring your own blanket, cushions and make it a social evening by sharing a summer feast with friends.

If you're choosing the picnic style option we recommend you bring your own small cushion and a blanket, or purchase a backrest and a small blanket for £10 when booking your film ticket. These are yours to keep.

Beanbag (from £28.25, inclusive of booking fee)
New for this year, we're introducing beanbag chairs for extra comfort. These are located towards the centre of the courtyard and allocated into zones, so booking together is recommended.

A small blanket to keep can be purchased for £2.50 when booking your film ticket.

Director's Chair (from £28.25, inclusive of booking fee)
Enjoy your evening under the stars in classic auteur comfort with our Director's Chairs. These are located towards the centre rear of the courtyard and allocated into zones, so booking together is recommended.

A small blanket to keep can be purchased for £2.50 when booking your film ticket.

Hampers and packages can be purchased when booking tickets, once you have selected your seat type. All hampers and packages must be booked at least three days before your performance.

If you've already booked your tickets and would like to upgrade your experience call our team on +44 (0)20 7845 4600 (option 7).

Dinner and Movie (from £55.75, inclusive of film ticket, director's chair and booking fee)

For an extra special night out, enjoy a three-course dinner at Bryn Williams. Located within the South Wing of Somerset House, Bryn's menus feature fresh, locally sourced produce.

This option really provides a night to remember, with a complimentary glass of prosecco, and you can even take your dessert into the courtyard to savour in your director's chair.

To book this experience, select this option when purchasing your seat ie. instead of selecting 'Director's Chair' you must select 'Dinner & Movie'.

Not available on Sunday screenings. 

Hampers (from £57.50)

Designed in mind for two, Bryn Williams has created a delicious range of hampers packed to the brim with modern British cuisine featuring seasonal ingredients, delicious wine and film treats.

Treat yourself to a Picnic Favourites Hamper for £57.50 or Picnic Feast Hamper for £77.50. Vegetarian options of both are available.
