The stunning backdrop of The Power of Summer pop-up cinema at Battersea Power Station
The sun has definitely got his hat on, so it’s perfect weather for heading south of the river to watch a film outdoors in the shade of London’s most iconic derelict building.
Boutique cinema franchise Everyman has set up a nine metre screen in front of an army of pastel beanbags for the city’s latest pop up The Power of Summer, so film fans can book up to see blockbusters like The Wolf of Wall Street and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels against the towering chimneys of Battersea Power Station for seven weeks.
This is the last time the public will be able to visit the pop-up park before the 45-acre site is closed off again to build luxury apartments. There’s also an oyster and prosecco bar, Heineken on tap, and gourmet burgers, hot dogs, and ceviche from Street Feast, a travelling food festival of artisan traders – all located next door to the viewing area with capacity for 1,000 people.
If you really want to make a night of it, book a premier seat in a bespoke, cushioned pod that come with a blanket, a roof for when the clouds start to appear and pre-film table service.
Visitors can take the District or Circle line to Sloane Square, walk over Chelsea Bridge and enter the gate on the first left.
The Power of Summer runs from 10 July to 31 August. General tickets are priced from £10, children £7.50 and premier tickets from £15.
