The best way to see movies in the summer

During the warm summer days, you want to do everything outside, to take advantage of every minute of the nice weather. This could prevent you from some activities but not the cinema! Indeed, the Nomad Cinema allows you to see your favourite movies while staying outside in beautiful places in London.

Nomad Cinema is a moving cinema, which means that it takes place in a place like a park (Queen's Park, Wembley Park) or even a cemetery (indeed, at the Brompton Cemetery!) For a few days they stay there, showcasing movies, and then they go somewhere else. And every time, you have the opportunity to find food trucks and bars that follow the cinema, but you can also bring your own food and drinks (including alcohol).

Prices range from £7 to £15. Discounts are granted to persons aged 65 and over, students, children under 14 and the unemployed. VIP tickets, "Magic carpet tickets" are also available (but not for every movie) - they give you several advantages: you do not stand in line, you are very well located in relation to the screen, you have a small bag offered with sweets and a soda, a cushion for your back, a waterproof carpet if the floor is wet and a blanket! Quite the perfect outdoor cinema night if you want to treat yourself. And if you do not have a VIP ticket, know that it is possible to rent chairs, as well as to buy blankets!

The summer locations are in Groversnor Square, Westquay esplanade and Queen's Park, showcasing classic movies like Casablanca, Psycho, Top Gun, Mamma Mia, Grease, Breakfast at Tiffany's and acclaimed recent movies like La La Land, Finding Dory, and Rogue One. Even movies for kids like the Lion King.

The other advantage is to realise that the Nomad Cinema will be close to yours for a week. That's when it really gets interesting, you could even go there every night. Track where the Nomad Cinema is right now on
