Believe it or not, it's technically SUMMER and we will behave accordingly, ignoring the fact we are in England. SO... open air cinema!! Bring your sandwiches and wine bottle to kill the time before the film starts at 7.30.
Classic, cult and contemporary films will be screened on the South Bank, in the outdoor amphitheatre beside City Hall, each Wednesday and Friday from 11 – 27 September.
Most films reach capacity so arrive early! Seats cannot be reserved so get together before entry to avoid disappointment, or ask a friend to keep a seating space for you.
Note: after sunset it gets quite chilly beside the river, so make sure to bring a sweater with you, and something to sit on (the stone steps get cold too).
Les Misérables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century.
The film tells the story of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict who becomes mayor of a town in France. Soon exposed, Valjean agrees to take care of Cosette, the illegitimate daughter of the dying Fantine, but as a fugitive must also avoid being captured again by police inspector Javert. The plot spans 17 years and is set against a backdrop of political turmoil, which in the film culminates in the June Rebellion of France.
Released last Christmas, the film won several Golden Globe as well as BAFTA awards.
