Weekend Diary: Power of Summer Outdoor Cinema

power of summer

A few weeks ago, MF and I went to the Power of Summer outdoor cinema at Battersea Power station to see The Full Monty. I know, I know….somehow I’ve managed to let 28 years go by without actually seeing it. And so we did, and yes it was fantastic. Not just the movie, but the whole experience of watching it. After perusing the delicious selection of street food stalls for something tasty (I went for the shredded duck burger and truffle fries), we were given wireless headphones and headed into to the outdoor viewing area. Pick from a sea of turquoise bean bag chairs, plop yourself down, and get comfy. For those not with child, there was even a small bar in the back for alcoholic drinks and snacks.  Worried about watching a movie in daylight? Dont. The screen provided a crystal clear image all while allowing you to enjoy the fresh summer air. It was definitely one of those moments when I couldn’t help but think “….and this is why living in London is so cool.”

The Power of Summer Everyman Cinema is on until August 31st so take advantage while it lasts! Book tickets here
