Film 4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

Tonight marks the start of one of the biggest entries in the London-based-outdoor-cinema calendar as Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset house begins with the premiere of The Skin I Live In. You can read our review of the opening film here and I have no idea how well this disturbing piece of cinema will play to a large crowd on a summer’s evening. Maybe it’s less creepy when not watched in a basement screening room.

You can read the full line-up of films at the Summer Screen in our earlier post, but unfortunately it’s all sold out. Your only remaining chance is the enter the competition on Film4.com and try to win tickets to the triple bill of Troll Hunters, Tremors and Gremlins on 6th August. Competition closes tomorrow at 5pm so don’t hesitate.

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House 2011 Line-up Revealed

Yesterday Somerset House released the list of films in this year’s Film4 Summer Screen. We missed out last year and frankly I can’t figure out why. With the amazing line-up this year I can imagine a fair few trips will be made.

Things worth getting silly about are a Die Hard and Attack the Block double bill, Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Princess Bride. Possibly most exciting of all is a Gremlins, Troll Hunter and Tremors triple bill. Watch this trailer if you aren’t excited by this idea.

Before each screening is an hour-long talk from the Behind the Screen series, well worth a look as they have the likes of Joe Cornish in attendance.

The full schedule of films is below and we’d love to see you there sitting on the floor, outdoors and at night, among fellow film fans and quality cinema.
