Rooftop Film Club Is Back

Rooftop Film Club is back.

Which is good news, because now, when people ask us the question, “Where should I go to watch a selection of both the best classic and new release films under the setting sun and into the starlit night, with deckchairs, and a bar?” (as they often do) we no longer have to politely deflect and change the subject.

They’ve got rooftops at Peckham’s Bussey Rooftop BarRoof East in Stratford, and they’re both equipped with plenty of street food (pizza from Share-a-Slice, stuffed Turkish flatbreads from Raastawala, desserts from the Treats Club, etc.), bottomless popcorn, cocktails & craft beers, deckchairs, love seats, and very handy wireless headphones. They’re one of the godfathers of London outdoor cinemas, and being set on rooftops, the view is almost as good offscreen as on it.

The 2022 season commences from 29th April (Bussey Building) and 3rd of May (Roof East). Some of the newer flicks on the billing include The Batman, Belfast, West Side Story, House of Gucci, and Jackass Forever, while the boatload of classics they have lined up include True Romance, Jurassic Park, Leon, Amelie, Collateral, Donnie Darko, Goodfellas, and Clueless.

And as a kicker? They’re going to be holding a “People’s Choice” screening of a time travel movie, with the winner of their poll hitting the screen on May 12th.

Turns out, you enjoyed it a lot.


NOTE: Rooftop Film Club is returning from 29th April (Bussey Building) and 3rd of May (Roof East). You can see the full lineup and get tickets for both locations at their website right HERE.
