The City of London is launching a series of outdoor movie nights this summer to encourage people to come back together after a long absence from socialization due to the pandemic.
The free film events, called “Through the Decades”, will feature family favorite films from the 1980s to 2020s.
“We’re excited to host outdoor London movie nights to reconnect with old friends and neighbors,” said Karen Oldham, neighborhood development and support manager.
“Over the decades, cinema and community have been celebrated under the stars. Whether it’s a classic or a newer favorite, the series will have something for everyone, ”she said.
The moving nights will take place from August 13th to September 17th. Each begins at dusk in five different locations listed below.
Londoners interested in attending must register for a seat online as each event is limited to 300 people.
COVID-19 restrictions will apply. Face-covering masks are required when guests are not seated.
People are encouraged to bring snacks, drinks, chairs, and blankets to complete the experience.
If it rains, the night of the move will be canceled and the registered people will be informed of the cancellation by email. The city will also post the cancellation on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts
