If you’re tired of the same old sticky-floored, squeaky-seated, stuffy cinemas, this list should help you find somewhere a little out of the ordinary to take in a flick.
The Nomad Cinema
This relaxed outdoor cinema has a festival feel, so it’s the perfect way to combat those post-Glastonbury Festival blues. So far, West Side Story  has played in the gardens of Citypoint. Other venues include Festival Gardens, which has a stunning view of St Paul’s Cathedral, and Bleeding Heart Yard, a cobbled courtyard in Hatton Garden. Bring a picnic or enjoy the on-site street food from around the world. Lovely.
The Scoop Cinema
This one’s ideal if you’re a little out of pocket. The incredible concrete amphitheatre near London Bridge is showing free movies throughout July as part of the city’s biggest free festival, the London Bridge City Summer Festival, which takes in venues along the embankment between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. It’s best to get there early, as films start at 6:30pm or 7pm, and tickets are first-come, first-served. Don’t forget something soft to sit on to stop your bum falling asleep! But you certainly won’t be snoozing, with the selection of great films and the stunning view of Tower Bridge.
Rooftop Film Club
The Rooftop Film Club is coming to Peckham, Shoreditch, Stratford and Kensington with recent favourites, cult 80s films and a few of the old-timey classics. For a truly amazing view, the Peckham location at the Bussey Building has a panoramic outlook of the city that might make it hard to keep your eyes on the screen. Settle into comfy director’s chairs, cosy blankets or a love seat for two with provided wireless headphones to ensure you won’t miss any of the onscreen action.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
