Rooftop Film Club at Queen of Hoxton

The Queen Of Hoxton, 1-5 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3JX

Tube: Liverpool Street Station


Dates: 07th May - 30th September 2017


Now a celebrated and integral part of Shoreditch summer nights, the Rooftop Film Club at the Queen of Hoxton rooftop terrace returns for its summer screening series, which sees a range of classic, cult and recent releases shown on a big screen on the roof for 15 a pop. This year the space has been transformed from a Viking stronghold to a floating island. The experience is far cry from the usual cinema multiplex fodder - with guests able to sit back under the glow of The City's skyline as they enjoy their favourite films with a drink in hand. Wireless headphones, a massive screen, comfy chairs, blankets, drinks and bar food makes for a great all-round experience - and the setting really is quite something. The Rooftop Film Club has also returned to the Bussey Building in Southwark, Roof East in Stratford and the Roof Gardens, Kensington.
