Films in the sunshine

What could be better than relaxing with a movie in the great outdoors this summer?

Here's our pick of the best:

Rooftop Film Club

With four London venues including the magical Roof Gardens in Kensington, these guys have the monopoly on rooftop movie action.

They usually sell out so you’ll need to plan ahead: August’s highlights include Moonrise Kingdom in Shoreditch and Romeo + Juliet at the Bussey Building.

Hot Tub Cinema

Heat getting to you? Pop onto your bikini and slip into a hot tub on an East London roof with a glass of something cool. All you need is some mates and movies - and Hot Tub have got the latter sorted.

Upcoming treats include Superbad, Human Traffic and Bridget Jones’ Diary.

Nomad Cinema

This inventive roving outdoor cinema has been bringing movie magic to green open spaces for three years now, in London and beyond.

This summer’s highlights include Priscilla, Queen of the Desert at Boston Manor Park, Brentford and Stand By Me in Queen’s Park, London.

Summer Screens

Here’s something for those outside the capital: Summer Screens put on cult movies in stunning Berkshire venues including Caversham Court Gardens, Bisham Abbey and Shaw House.

Choices include Back To The Future, Leon and a Grease Sing-A-Long and you’re welcome to have a picnic before the movie starts at dusk.

Floating Cinema

We love this nifty idea: cool movies on board a boat. And not just any boat: artists and architects have created a collection of 'extraordinary cargoes' atop a traditional canal barge.

This summer’s programme includes a fancy dress screening of Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.
