Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House makes a welome return this summer to celebrate 10 years of cinema under the stars, with 14 nights of classic, cult, contemporary and never-seen-before films. All films are presented in the spectacular neoclassical setting of Somerset House’s 18th century courtyard on a giant 17 x 8 metre screen with full surround sound. Tickets go on general release on Friday 16th May and we suggest booking immediately to avoid disappointment, as these special events are guaranteed to sell out.

Films have been introduced by their stars including Alan Rickman for Die Hard, Tippi Hedren for The Birds, Simon Pegg for Shaun of the Dead and Brian Blessed for Flash Gordon. Directors have brought their latest creations to the screen for the first time at Somerset House and hit the red carpet with their cast.
