A socially distanced, open-air cinema is going to set up shop in Blackheath Common this summer, the capital's first alfresco cinema which doesn't require a car.

Thanks to Free Range Film Club, south east Londoners will now be able to enjoy some of the classics in a cinema-under-the-stars this August, all you need to bring is a blanket and a few mates.

The suitably scenic Blackheath Common's "famous expanse" will host films from August 12 to 16, and is easily accessible by walking or by bike from Blackheath Village, Greenwich, Woolwich, Deptford and Lewisham.

This Is Local London:

South east London will host just one of several cinema pop-ups, with screenings also being held at Brockwell Park and Three Mills Islands during July and August.

A number of drive-in cinemas coming have already been announced to be coming to the capital this summer, but Free Range Film Club's will allow you to watch a film alfresco without a car in sight.

Sun or rain (you're advised to dress appropriately for the weather), cinema-goers will be able to watch five films across five days, all beginning at sunset and with spots going first-come-first serve.

This Is Local London:

Tickets cost £44 for a 2-person pitch, and £88 for a four-person, and at Blackheath the films on offer are Black Panther, The Adventure of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Grease, 10 Things I Hate About You and Groundhog Day.

The outdoor cinema has been set-up with Covid-19 restrictions in mind, so a range of safety measures will be in place to ensure social distancing, including stewarding and one-way-systems, as well as enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures.

Instead of buying individual tickets, groups can book out two-person or four-person pitches, giving you your own marked out patch of grass socially distanced from other groups.

This Is Local London:

The company says you should only attend a screening if you can walk, cycle or drive to the location safely, and should only share a pitch with those you live with or those in your support bubble, depending on what the latest Government advice is come August.

Free Range Film Club has asked people to do their bit to stay safe, respecting social distancing and also to not bring furniture, chairs or parasols.

At the screenings, wireless headphones are issued on entry, and viewers will be able to purchase street food and drinks at a full licensed bar.

Bringing your own food and drink in is apparently banned, as are camping furniture, animals except assistance animals, bicycles, illegal drugs and any dangerous items.
