Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset HousePossibly the most famous of all the open air film events to take place in London, Summer Screen returns to Somerset House in association with Film4 to bring cinema lovers a truly eclectic mix of movies. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Film4's Trainspotting, this year's event puts Danny Boyle's controversial 1996 hit back on the big screen. Additionally, coinciding with exhibition Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick, this year's programme will also include one of Kubrick's films as voted by the public. The vote-winning title will be revealed on the night of the screening. Further films this year include Ex Machina, Sunset Boulevard and Bram Stoker's Dracula.
