The line-up includes family films and iconic classics, from 1917 and Knives Out to The BFG and Grease, as well as stand-up sessions from Mark Watson’s Carpool Comedy Club.

2 Rooftop Film Club
Rooftop Film Club, which has hosted alfresco film screenings on London rooftops from the Bussey Building in Peckham to Stratford’s Roof East and The Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch, is returning to its old stomping ground of Alexandra Palace with another summer of drive-in movies. Rooftop Film Club’s previous drive-in cinema, which visited Sandown Park and Brent Cross, as well as Ally Pally, won awards, so these guys have got previous in roller-skating popcorn right to your parking spot. You can take your own snacks and drinks, or order concessions like popcorn and chocolate, Popdogs hot dogs and drinks online.

Films will range from 80s classics to blockbuster movies from the teenies and inbetweenies (that’s 2013-2019 and 2010-2012, in case you’re scratching your head), complete with a food delivery app serving American-style dishes and snacks via roller waiters.
