A sneak preview of Rooftop Cinema in London

Rooftop Cinema has always been something that I've fancied trying. There's something about watching a classic film under the stars that appeals to my romantic sensibilities.

So I was thrilled when I had the chance to write this preview of the summer season for Londonist, and even more thrilled when I got the chance to attend the press opening night.

Set in the Bussey Building in Peckham, the venue's geographical location offers a perfect view of all of London's landmarks, from the 02 right round to Battersea power station, making it well worth getting there early in order to watch the sunset before the film begins.

The opening night film was Sunshine on Leith, a fabulous musical number set to the songs of the Proclaimers, and introduced by the director himself. Blankets and headphones are provided
 Especially for the opening night, British Airways staff were on hand to serve ice cream and popcorn throughout the film, including this special recipe "Chim chimcheree" popcorn (rooftop...chimneys...geddit?)
