Brought to you by The Lexi, Nomad Cinema is a roaming pop-up cinema with a difference; 100% of the Nomad's profits go to their chosen charity, The Sustainability Institute in South Africa.

More than just providing screenings of great films in appropriately great locations, Nomad events immerse you in the flavour of the film, with added elements such as music, themed decorations, quality catering and a warm friendly welcome…
The park opened in 1886 and was named Queen's Park in honour of the reigning monarch, who was celebrating her Golden Jubilee the following year. Perfect for events, the local community host two annual festivals at Queen's Park, keeping the park at the heart of the community's live music and cultural offerings. Nomad Cinema bring their unique offering to this vibrant and stunning area of London, so be prepared to be wowwed by the gorgeous ground of Queen's Park.
No film more wonderfully captures the fleeting brilliance of youth than Rob Reiner’s coming-of-age classic Stand By Me, as we are taken on a rite of passage adventure for four teens on the brink of manhood, who embark on a search for the body of a missing boy. Narrated by Richard Dreyfuss and starring teen-heart-throb – and gone-too-soon brother of Joaquin - River Phoenix, along with Corey Feldman and Kiefer Sutherland.
With a mixing of the hilarious ponderings of adolescence, near-death experiences, and moments of real solidarity and tenderness, this is a complete classic that will make you laugh, cry, and – for a moment – wish you were twelve again.
