A rooftop cinema is back for the summer with cult classics and Hollywood blockbusters.
The seventh floor of Springbridge car park in Springbridge Road, Ealing , will be transformed into an outdoor cinema as the Make it Ealing Rooftop Society welcomes the return of Rooftop Film Club tomorrow (August 6).
The screenings will last until August 31 and have been made possible by Ealing Broadway BID and Land Securities, in close partnership with Ealing Council and supported by Network Rail.
Cinema-goers will be able to see films such as Coming to America and The Dallas Buyers Club.
The Frontier Rooftop Bar will also be open from 7pm to 10pm Wednesday to Sunday.
Ann Hunter, Chief Executive of Ealing Broadway BID, said: “We are putting Ealing on the map as West London’s capital of culture, and by working with award winning and innovative partners such as Rooftop Film Club and Cellar Door we hope to attract new audiences to the area.
“With major new high quality developments including the new film quarter in the pipeline there has never been a better time to come to Ealing”.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “This summer festival event is a great way to celebrate our proud heritage whilst we await the return of a permanent cinema complex.
“This is a creative use of the car park space and a fantastic opportunity to experience the atmosphere of cinema outdoors.”
Many food businesses in the area will deliver to your seat including Firezza Pizza, Okawari, Kerbisher & Malt and Creams Café.
Deckchairs and blankets will also be available.
There has not been a cinema in the borough since 2007 but Ealing Council have approved planning permission for major cinema and entertainment cultural hub Ealing Filmworks.
Land Securities aims to transform the area into a leisure and cultural destination including a 1,000 seat Picturehouse Cinema.
