This summer the Queen of Hoxton plays host to a unique outdoor film experience, the Rooftop Film Club. Five nights a week you can get a little outdoor movie action on the club’s rooftop and avoid the gangs of teens, sullen staff and general lack of ambience of your local multiplex. The varied movie selection is comprised of classic, cult and recent releases, with screenings ranging from Top Gun to Zoolander to Monster’s Inc. With no under 18s allowed in it provides a welcome break from the whining kids or gossiping ‘tweens’ which always seem to plague my movie experience (what do you mean maybe I should make more age-appropriate film choices??). Being able to hear the movie clearly is a guarantee because you are given a set of high quality wireless headphones as part of your nine pound ticket.
If you get hungry, food and drinks are served all day long in the Rooftop Garden to enjoy before or during the screening. It is recommended you bring a jacket and/or a blanket in case the weather turns chilly.
Screenings start at dusk Wednesday to Sunday, and the film club runs until September 30. Tickets are limited to 100 per movie so to avoid missing out on your favourite film we recommend purchasing them beforehand here.
