Pop Up Screens in Ruskin Park, Denmark Hill for the first time ever this weekend

This summer, Pop Up Screens has teamed up with Benadryl to bring Londoners critically acclaimed new releases in even more of the Capital’s most treasured parks. The screenings kicked off on 20th July and will run all the way through to 23rd September. This weekend they will pop up in new location Ruskin Park.

As the sweltering heatwave continues, and most of the parks in London resemble sub-saharan Africa, it seems only feasible to leave the house either before sunrise or after sunset. Pop Up Screens recognises that anyone who does otherwise runs a high risk of melting, so are offering a multitude of glorious evening screenings of new releases and well loved classics. They had a weekend of record breaking sales at their opening weekend last week and can’t wait to show more film lovers what they’ve got to offer.

Summer Film Slate

The Pop Up Screens summer film slate includes superhero flicks Thor: Ragnorok and Wonder Woman, Academy Award winners The Shape of Water, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out alongside new family favourite The Greatest Showman. Those of you who couldn’t possibly last the summer without getting your fix of the classics such as Notting Hill, The Notebook, Dirty Dancing and Grease will not be disappointed.

Pop Up Screens will continue to work its magic in a host of new locations including the¬†beautiful Ruskin Park in Denmark Hill, iconic Guildhall in heart of London, pituresque Canbury Gardens in Kingston and the award-winning, Priory Park in Crouch End. ¬†Pop Up Screens founder Dave Leydon said ‚ÄúPop Up Screens has been popping up around London for 6 years now and every year we try and find some new locations to pop up in and this year isn‚Äôt any different as we‚Äôre on our way to Kingston, Maida Vale, Denmark Hill and Crouch End for the first time. ¬†Outdoor cinema is still something that‚Äôs got a certain romance to it that gets lost in the multiplexes, that magic of being outside with a movie you love is pretty hard to beat.”
