This August Picturehouse is popping up on the roof garden at John Lewis in Oxford Street (entrance in Old Cavendish Street), for three weeks of films like Casablanca, Grease, Top Gun, ET, and The Graduate. £12 gets you in, and you can buy food from their food hall, or pre-order food here from Rossopomodoro (pizza) or Holy Burger. Plus there will be a bar - sounds great!
"Summer nights of classic films at John Lewis Oxford Street’s unique roof garden.
As part of John Lewis’s 150th anniversary celebrations, Picturehouse brings you four weekends of film screenings set against the London skyline in John Lewis Oxford Street’s recently transformed roof garden.
Get into the spirit of summer with beautifully Swedish Rekorderlig cider.
Relax and enjoy these specially chosen cinema classics in the glorious setting of this unique central London space, a mix of traditional and contemporary garden design.
Doors open at 7.00 and the screenings start at dusk. Why not bring a picnic for the event, or get some goodies from the John Lewis Food Hall? You can also pre-order a selection of pizzas from Rossopomodoro or a delicious burger and chips from ham holy burger.
There will also be a fully licensed (cash-only) bar serving alcoholic and soft drinks, including Rekorderlig ciders and Saint Premium Light Lager.
Remember you are outdoors, so bring wet weather gear or a blanket if the weather turns cool!"
