Be it a chick flick or a cult classic, movies in the summer are just better when they're screened outdoors. Sure, there’s the slightly unpredictable aspect that the British weather represents, but that’s all part of the fun, isn’t it?
Here to help you make the most of the summer, we’ve rounded up the best places that are bringing everyone's favourite films to a (plein-air) screen near you. Find your fave, pen it in your diary, pack a picnic, and then cross your fingers for clear skies. We’ll see you put there!
