Open-air movie nights at Somerset House are the Royal Ascot of the alfresco cinema season (though not so fancy that ladies in the audience didn’t let out a whoop when Brad Pitt took his t-shirt off in ‘Thelma and Louise’ last year). Tickets go on sale today (May 18) at 10am and they shift quickly, so consider yourself warned. And this season is a cracker, kicking off with the UK premiere of Walter Salles’s new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’ a month before it hits cinema. Other highlights include Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’, ‘Paris, Texas’, ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ’80s faves ‘Pretty in Pink’ and ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’. Or, if you’re feeling experimental, what about Gaspar Noe’s controversial ‘Enter the Void’? The closing-night screening is another UK first – John Hillcoat’s crime drama ‘Lawless’, written by Nick Cave and starring Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf. Doors open at 6.30pm… arrive early to save a spot and enjoy Somerset House’s beautiful courtyard.
