Outdoor movies

The City is excited to announce the launch of its 2022 outdoor movie nights season showcasing family-favourite movies in neighbourhoods across London this summer. These free events are hosted by residents and neighbourhood-based groups, providing a great opportunity for neighbours to connect.

Each movie night will start at dusk, approximately 8:30 p.m., in the locations listed below. No registration is required to attend a movie night. If you plan on attending a movie night, be sure to bring snacks, drinks, chairs and blankets to complement this great film experience.

Please note additional movie nights will be added to this page as they become available.
