Pop Up Screens Is Back

It’s finally sunny(ish) and for film fans it’s the perfect time to get away from the cold indoor cinema, sit outside…and watch a film! That’s right, outdoor screenings are returning to a large green area near you with the announcement of Pop Up Screen’s line-up of new and classic movies in partnership with Benadryl.

Yes that’s right, it’s time to ditch the indoors, bring your favourite blanket and pick a film or two from choices such as Thor: Ragnarok, Wonder Woman, Academy Award winners The Shape of Water, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out along with 2017’s Beauty and the Beast and many more.

There are multiple locations this year, with the additions of Ruskin Park in Denmark Hill, Guildhall,  Canbury Gardens in Kingston and Priory Park in Crouch End, so even more chances to enjoy some amazing movies. Take a look at the selection below and pick out your favourites.

Oscar Nominations 2018

It’s award season again and with that comes the biggest movie awards of the year. It’s time for the nominations for the 90th Academy Awards. It seems mostly predictable, very happy to see Greta Gerwig and her film Lady Bird receive so much attention. Get Out has done incredibly well and one of my favourites of the year, The Big Sick getting a nod for Original Screenplay is wonderful.

If anything it’s a real shame to see Blade Runner 2049 not in the Best Picture or Best Director and nothing for Wonder Woman. Christopher Plummer getting nominated for a part which he had about 4 days to prepare for might be some sort of record in the Academy Awards!

In total, there’s 13 for Shape of Water (beautiful film and incredibly moving), Dunkirk has received 8 (a true film makers film) and Get Out has 4 (one of the best horror movies ever)

Taking place on March 4th, I’ll be watching live on whatever channel it’s on (Sky Cinema right??) and I’ll be tweeting, Instagramming (not as much as last year as certain complaints) and Facebooking throughout the night. It’s being presented by Jimmy Kimmel who hosted last year’s ceremony. Hope you can join me. If not, I’m sure you’ll have a nice sleep instead.
