The Luna Cinema Returns to South West London This Month!
Summer is back on track as The Luna Cinema’s 12th consecutive open-air film season has returned in a brand new socially spacious way! After a somewhat turbulent few months for cinema, when it appeared only drive in screens might see the light of day this year, film fans across the country (and those without cars) can now look forward to summer evenings in gorgeous settings, enjoying great films on giant screens under the stars.
Each Luna screening will take place in the fresh air, with social distanced pitches allowing the audience to keep safely apart at all times. Tickets for all Luna open air screenings this summer will offer a designated pitch per booking group, each with directors’ chairs laid out in advance for each person, ensuring guests have space to kick back and enjoy the setting safely. Seating will be sanitised between each screening, and bookers can choose whether to book a two-person or four-person pitch, though all members of each party must be from no more than two households. Larger groups from more households can sit in adjacent pitches. Each Luna event will offer socially distanced queuing for toilets and ample hand sanitising facilities for all guests, allowing attendees to safely relax and enjoy the ultimate cinema experience under the stars. As always, The Luna Cinema audiences are also welcome to bring along picnics to screenings.
Film-lovers across the country can choose from scores of outdoor screenings in some of the UK’s most prestigious and historically important venues. Venues featuring in the season include Leeds Castle, Blenheim Palace, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, Castle Howard, Waddesdon Manor, Hampton Court Palace, Bolton Abbey, and Lincoln Castle, to name a few. Also, for the first time ever, the Luna big screen will be taking up a summer residency at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, on the stunning South Grounds, adjacent to the Thames. *
Anyone missing the big screen during lockdown will be in for a treat with an amazing line-up of box office greats and award winners this summer season, with the Oscar winning Rocketman, featuring Golden Globe winner Taron Egerton as Elton John. Drama lovers are also set for a thrilling time watching this year’s box office big hitters, Joker and Judy, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger in the respective titular roles. The season also features screenings of the year’s most critically acclaimed releases such as Parasite, Jojo Rabbit, Knives Out and Tarantino’s award winning Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, alongside the return of the ever popular classics, Grease, Dirty Dancing , Pretty Woman and The Greatest Showman.
