Last night, we went to the first of the three outdoor cinema events in Hilly Fields - a screening of Anchorman on the crest of the hill below the new cafe. The steady rain turned it from a night of sprawling on picnic blankets into an occasion when it paid to come prepared: Chairs and umbrellas were currency. The organisers dished out the ponchos.
We hunkered down with haloumi burgers, beer and mind-blowingly good popcorn from the London Kettle Popcorn company and soon the sound of rain on our umbrella became one with the soundtrack.
Hopefully, Pop Up Screens will become a regular part of the Brockley summer season.
