Family treats at London’s Rooftop Film Club
If you are in London between May and September, it is worth checking out the Rooftop Film Club – where classic movies are shown on rooftops of venues scattered around the capital. While there are a lot of cool movies being shown that are aimed at grown-ups (from La La Land to pregnancy comedy Prevenge), there is also a great selection of family films this year, ranging from animated movies like Zootropolis and Frozen to Movies4Kids number one film of 2016, Hunt For The Wilderpeople. For more information, check out the Rooftop Film Club website HERE, but be quick as tickets sell out in advance.
And if you are visiting LA or New York, check out the main Rooftop Film Club website here for listings of performances in those US cities.
Below is a list of the family movies showing in May and June at venues including Bussey Building in Peckham Rye (SE15 4ST), Roof East in Stratford (E15 1XE) and Queen Of Hoxton in Shoreditch (EC2A 3JX). Tickets start at £15 – do note that all the movies are screened in the evening. (You can find reviews of all the movies listed below at Movies4Kids, of course).
