Our favourite roving pop-up Nomad Cinema, sister of the Lexi Cinema in Kensal Green, is back for the eighth year running with another killer programme set in some of London’s dreamiest locations. Whether you’re after glamourous old-school flicks like Casablanca at City Point, in skyscraper-ville of the Barbican, a slice of gothic romance with Rebecca and Bride of Frankenstein at Brompton Cemetery or The Shape of Water next the lapping waves of the Hyde Park Lido, this three month run is full of thrills and spills. Blankets are available for rental and sipping and snacking fodder is provided by the likes of Scampi Shop, Sipsmith and Chamberlains of London. Even better? Nomad is the only pop-up cinema company that gives donates all profits to charity, with your pennies going to educate children at the Sustainability Institute in Lynedoch, South Africa, one of the world’s most economically inequitable regions. So if sumptuous locations, not-your-average outdoor film billing and a socially conscious heart is pushing your buttons, go forth and find the Nomad.
