The Exhibit

If you're looking for a quirky lineup of cinema screenings covering the best in scary, spooky and the psychological, The Exhibit's 'killer thriller Thursdays' are perfect for you. Enjoy top films in this genre at their lively, buzzing space.

Combining cult classic, recent releases and old-school comfort movies, Rooftop Film Club is a quirky pop-up across venues in both Stratford and Peckham. Nab a free drink with your £22 ticket, before settling down at sunset for films like Notting Hill, Mamma Mia, Wonka and much more. Feeling peckish? You can enjoy mouthwatering street food from a range of vendors here too.

Head over to Brockley where the Rivoli Ballroom is offering one of the quirkiest cinema experiences in London. Take a seat inside the grand hall and tuck into popcorn and fizz while you watch classic flicks, from La Dolce Vita to The Shining.
