Classics movies, picnics and surround sound make Somerset House’s outdoor cinema an unmissable event. The annual Film4 Summer Screen is back with an extended programme of films over fourteen nights. Along with the usual mix of cult hits, thrillers and comedies- including The Untouchables and Crazy Stupid Love- the event launches with the premier of Richard Curtis' new romcom, About Time. The films won’t be shown until August but tickets go on sale Friday May 24. Don’t wait- it's a certified sell out.
