My colleague Liv Siddall memorably ranted about al fresco cinemas a few weeks back but the FILM4 Summer Screen at Somerset House is undoubtedly one of the best, combining excellent programme curation with genuinely stunning surroundings. It might even escape the Siddall wrath.
For the second year running Print Club London is curating a film poster exhibition to run alongside the cinema screenings, enlisting the help of a whole host of talented image-makers. This year’s roster includes Hattie Stewart, Kate Moross, Kate Gibb, and Rose Blake, whose touching E.T. made almost suffocatingly nostalgic.
We see a lot of this kind of group exhibition but Print Club London have once again organised one of the very best around.
Summer Screen Prints runs from 31 July to 25 August.
