This scorching summer looks like it’s never going to end. That’s a good thing for the good folk at Rooftop Film Club who are gearing up for a Sweet September on the Roof to see out their summer season in style.
This could be your last chance to enjoy an al fresco film experience before the weather turns (hopefully) so check out our complete list of The Best Summer Film events in London
Tickets are now available to purchase online for Rooftop Film Club’s September schedule with some nice gems to pick from. Peckham, Shoreditch, and Stratford are the venues of choice for Rooftop Film Club this season and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
The September screenings open with a classic at Bussey Building in Peckham. Casablanca screens on the 4th, and they will be dishing out special tinted sunglasses to make you feel like you’ve truly gone back in time. Capture some perfect black and white moments a la Rick and Ilsa.
The 7th and 8th sees back to back Tom Cruise action with Mission: Impossible – Fall Out and Top Gun. Check out our review of the awesome Mission: Impossible – Fallout
The musical hit of the year The Greatest Showman will be screened over at Roof East and on the 12th you can grab tickets to see Dirty Dancing – with one of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time (watermelons optional).
Rooftop Film Club hasn’t forgotten their funny bone and will also be showcasing comedy classics to get people laughing. Dude it up on the roof in Peckham with a screening of The Big Lebowski on 25th and get your gang together for a showing of The Goonies on the 21st. Discreetly need to tell someone something? Take them to a screening of 10 Things I Hate About You on the 9th. Laugh yourself silly at a screening of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy on the 26th.
Newer films will also get the Rooftop Film Club treatment this summer with modern hits to enjoy. Deadpool 2 on the 12th will surely satisfy lovers of comics. On the 14th, get a fill of the family in red as you’ll be stretching your arms for the popcorn at a screening of The Incredibles 2, and keeping up with the comic theme on 16th September, there’s a screening of Marvel’s Black Panther.
Films aren’t all that’s on the menu. In Peckham, the Bussey Rooftop Bar is the ideal spot for drinking in the sunset from 5pm weekdays or 12pm weekends. Food is also on the menu, with Rockadollar offering rooftoppers a yummy selection of burgers and hotdogs with delicious veggie and vegan options.
On Roof East the cocktails are flying off the shelves and are the perfect way to get in gear for all the games at SFG Club, Rooftop Film Club’s adventure playground sister at Roof East, complete with a circus-inspired theme to celebrate 250 years of the Circus.
