Get your motor running with these road movies

Posted at 3:30 pm, April 23, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment

Yes. It’s that time of year again. The open-air cinema season is back. First up is a season of road movies in a former petrol station in King’s Cross (from April 24 to May 5). That sounding a bit a divey? It shouldn’t; this is the King’s Cross Filling Station. Not just any old petrol station, this one has been revamped into a bar fronting Regent’s Canal – more frozen margaritas and prosecco-on-tap than chewing gum and Lucozade. Before the bar reopens in May, Everyman cinemas is taking over for 12 days, and the audience will sit under the old forecourt canopy with headphones and blankets provided. Films include ‘Paris Texas’, ‘Natural Born Killers’, ‘Easy Rider’ and ‘My Own Private Idaho’, with American hot dogs, beer, wine and cocktails so you don’t run out of steam. And while you’re there, have a snoot around what is London’s newest gussied-up neighbourhood.

For more info, see the Everyman Road Movies at KXFS listing.
