Summer night movies on Hilly Fields

Outdoor cinema is coming to Hilly Fields this summer.Pop Up Screens are staging screenings of Anchorman, Napoleon Dynamite and Ghostbusters on 20, 21 and 22 July.

The Pop Up Screens team explains:

Tickets are £8 in advance via our website or £10 on the door. Alternatively if you fancy seeing all the movies, then you can buy a weekend ticket for £20.

Our doors will open at 7.30pm and the movie will start at 9.30pm. (we have to wait for the sun to go down). There will be over 400 tickets on sale, so plenty for everyone... hopefully everyone will come!

You won’t be able to miss us, we’ve got a 5x11m screen. We’ve got food from Tucker’s Exotics who cook exotic meats, so if you fancy try springbok, buffalo or zebra now’s your chance. We’ve got genuinely the most amazing popcorn you’ll ever try from London Kettle Popcorn.

And we are operating a bar stocked with quality beers from craft brewers such as Brew Dog, Camden Town Brewery and Freedom Brewery plus tea, coffee and soft drinks. We’re working with the Live Live Project to screen short films from digital artists before each movie. We also have the very funny Helen Arney doing some stand up before the movie starts.

Open air cinema is completely different to a trip to the local multiplex, it sounds silly but it’s true. We always liken it to marrying together the atmosphere of a festival with the event of going to the cinema. It’s very chilled out and relaxed and everyone is happy. We try to make it about more than just the movie so we work with small quality suppliers to bring good food and drink in, play music beforehand so you can come in and catch up with your friends over a drink before settle down to watch a movie you know you’re going to love.

We were looking for locations in the area to stage an event and Hilly Fields was the our last stop on a whirlwind tour of Lewisham parks found with the aid of Google Maps. We knew nothing about the park, pulled up on Eastern Road and dragged ourselves up the hill. Once you’re at the top of the hill you can see across London and hit us how brilliant a location it is and that made our mind up. We’re really pleased with Hilly Fields and can’t wait to pop up in it.
