London’s famous Battersea Power Station is hosting a seven-week outdoor cinema, allowing film fans to enjoy some cinema greats while soaking up the sun.
The station’s owners will also be opening up their final pop-up park before the site is closed to enable its transformation into a major new residential and entertainment development.
Everyman Cinemas will show a selection of past and current hits, including Wayne’s World and The Wolf of Wall Street, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels on a 9 meter LED screen.
To ensure they fully enjoy their films, patrons will be issued “state-of-the-art earphones”.
Tickets start from £10 and can be purchased from everymancinema.com/thepowerofsummer.
Visitors to the park area will be able to enjoy a licenced bar supported by Heineken, plus food from a number of traders organised by Street Feast and including Le Bun, Spit & Roast, Popdogs, Mama’s Jerk and Anna Maes.
Admission to park is free before 17.30pm or £5 after and all weekend.
Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “We feel passionately about making Battersea accessible not only to those who have bought here but to those who want to come and enjoy our unique location on the river.
“We are working hard to create a diverse cultural community so this exciting Summer schedule will offer people the chance to come and experience this first hand and to get a real flavour of what is to come once the park opens officially in the future.”
Andrew Myers, Chief Executive Officer of Everyman, added: “What a perfect way for London to experience the iconic Power Station first hand. Hosted by BPS, Everyman will deliver superb film, Street Feast food and glorious weather.”
