Film Event: Rooftop Film Club with Nespresso

Rooftop Film Club with Nespresso
Regular readers of Popcorn and Glitter will already be aware for my love of Rooftop and Underground cinema and so we were delighted to be invited for another fun-filled evening with a screening of The Shining (1980)...

For those of you who haven't caught up on my previous Rooftop posts (shame on you), Rooftop Film Club is an open-air cinema based across several picturesque London, NYC and LA locations presented by Nespresso. Hosting a series of cult and modern day classics, Rooftop invites film fans to pull up a deck chair, grab some tasty treats and enjoy. On Saturday, Jack and I visited the Bussey Building in Peckham for a screening of Stanley Kubrick's iconic film, The Shining (1980) - one of our all time favourite films. Being it rare that us cinephiles get some fresh air, we were excited to attend, sample the Nespresso martinis, free photobooth and enjoy a night under the stars.

Having made our way to the roof, the first thing that struck me was the amazing views of London greeting us. Being a beautiful clear day, we were treated to an incredible skyline before heading to the bar and food area to enjoy some cocktails and some music before pulling up a deckchair and blanket in front of the big screen. Of course, it wouldn't be a true cinema experience without some snacks and so we grabbed some sweets, popcorn and ice-cream and made ourselves comfy.

Being the extended edition, the film took us from sunset to night sky which made for a fantastic atmosphere. Unlike other rooftop cinemas I've been to, this one didn't actually offer headphones but honestly there was no need. Despite being a rather long film, the deckchairs were comfy and it was nice to snuggle up with a blanket and snacks. A huge thanks goes to Rooftop and Nespresso for a wonderful evening - as always, I cannot recommend Rooftop enough as it is the ultimate way to experience film during the Summer months.

Have you visited Rooftop Film Club yet? What films would you like to see on one of London's rooftops? As always, I love reading your thoughts and so please do leave me lots of lovely comments down below.

  1. I went to the Roof East one last year and LOVED it, I can't wait to plan another trip this year. Those martinis look amazing <3

    1. Aw I'd love to go there, they have mini golf there don't they? The views from Peckham were amazing! I'd definitely recommend it - plus, FREE photobooth! xx

  2. How incredible! I bet this takes film watching to a whole new level. I haven't ever been to an outdoor or rooftop cinema, but I'm hoping to change this all as soon as possible! I'm a huge fan of sunsets (they're one of my most favourite things, ever) so being able to watch a film as day turns to night would be quite something! :-) xx

    1. It really does - I love film experiences like this. The views and sunset was awesome. They're all over London so hopefully you can find a good spot, I'd definitely recommend it :) xx

  3. Wow, thats so cool! Never knew about it.. thanks for sharing babe

    Lots of Love,

  4. I really wanted to go to one of these last time I was in London but I ran out of time. I'm a huge nerd and would probably want to see the 2003 live action Peter Pan on a rooftop because it fulfills all my London dreaaams.

    Looks like an awesome night! I recently watched The Shining after a few years and I had forgotten how genuinely scary it is. I think I would feel pretty eerie watching it at night on a rooftop.


    1. Aw no! If you ever visit again you'll have to go! It's on every year from June til September I think? Haha I know, the guy next to us had the blanket over his face for majority of the movie which was rather amusing xx

  5. This looks like something nice to do before the summer ends and they have these in my area. I hope you're doing well, Sophie :)

    1. Oh really? That's exciting. They've also recently started doing Drive-Ins too which is cool and very american. You too Gil, hope you're doing well :)

  6. this sounds like the perfect night out! I showed your blog to a friend of mine and he loves it, especially knowing whats going on around London since you always know the latest :p

    1. It was so much fun! Aw thanks so much Pam that's very kind of you - haha I do try, I'm sure you're just as on the ball -if not more so! xx

  7. Oh my god! I so want to do this. It looks so fun :) x
