Big Screen on the Beach

Returning for the sixth year and running for six weeks, Big Screen on the Beach is back at the Roundhouse London in Camden for summer 2017.

With a series of outdoor films from new releases, cult classics and family favourites to choose from, cinema goers can experience a unique screening experience in this specially created holiday inspired urban beach. There’s cocktails available from the beach bars and a selection of street food to keep you watered and fed during the screening too.

When I was invited to attend the opening night screening, I jumped at the chance…One of my favourite films, The Goonies was showing and I had never seen it on the big screen. Let alone in an open air cinema in a beach environment. The clever guys at Big Screen on the Beach have cutting edge LED screens, so you don’t have to worry about bright sunshine ruining the film. It was a sunny day when I was visited and I watched half of the film in my sunglasses.

I wasn’t expecting it to be so big, the sand and deckchairs transformed the space and it definitely didn’t feel like I was in London. I loved sitting in my deckchair with my feet in the sand and a cocktail in my hand. It was lovely and unique experience, and of course the film was brilliant as I knew it would be.

I like event cinema, it’s a great way to experience film and it makes a regular trip to the cinema seem boring in comparison. I really enjoyed it and will be back.

Big Screen on the Beach, presented by will run until 29th July. For listings and to book tickets, click here
