Film 4 summer screen at Somerset House

ⓒ Gideon Mendel

Exciting news! It's finally that time of year again and the giant screen at Somerset House is back. This really is one of my all time favourite dates, particularly on a lovely warm evening like tonight (let's just hope it lasts...)

This year it's running from 30th July 2010 to 8th August and it really does give you an amazing chance to experience cinema in a whole new light. Think American drive in (that jumping sausage scene from Grease) crossed with English country house grandeur - and it's all in central London!

This year's highlights are Kill Bill Volume 1 (the first and the best), Goldfinger and my personal favourite, The Lost Boys. If you're REALLY into your movies, there's also a variety of 'Behind the Screen' talks and discussions taking place prior to each evening's showing. On the other hand, unless your date is as into movies as you are, this part might be better avoided...

There are definitely a few insiders tips on this one. Bring a big rug, an umbrella (just to keep the sun off of course...), a picnic, something to drink and most importantly, LOTS of cushions. Numb bottom syndrome mid movie will really spoil the mood!
