Outdoor cinema opens for summer

Outdoor cinema opens for summer

King’s Cross became London’s hottest neighbourhood last summer when new spaces dedicated to the arts, fancy street-food stalls, and places to drink and socialise opened. A year later, and the transformation of this once gritty area is very much still happening.

Just as the weather is hotting up, an al fresco Everyman cinema has popped up at the canal-side King’s Cross Filling Station, a cultural hub inspired by 1960s California. As a nod to the space’s former life as a BP garage, road movies will be shown on a big screen for 12 days, from 24 April to 5 May.

Cult classics including My Own Private Idaho show back-to-back with violent thrillers such as Tarantino’s Death Proof and Natural Born Killers, and partners-in-crime movies Thelma & Louise and Bonnie & Clyde.

Blankets – there’s no Californian sunshine here, after all – and headphones are supplied, and like at a drive-in (without the driving), hot dogs and beer will be on offer.

‘Everyman Road Movies’ will screen from 24 April to 5 May 2013 at King’s Cross Filling Station, Goods Way, London N1 (020 8880 6111; www.kxfs.co.uk); tickets cost from ?10. For more information and to book, visit kxfs.co.uk/roadmovies
