Film and Movie Bar Nights

You may find cult classic films being shown in bars or independent film makers showcasing their short films. We have put together some of the best pubs and bars for film and movie nights in London.

Catch some of the best movies from past and present at one of these great London film nights. From Grease and The Italian Job to Lady Bird and Ready Player One, you can enjoy every single one from the comfort of the One Aldwych screening room with a complimentary glass of fizz and three course meal at Indigo.
Monday night was made to be movie night. And so at The Grove you can head down to this charming Victorian boozer to enjoy their spread of films every week. Kick back and start your week off with one of their blockbusting specials complete with some lovely British nosh and craft beer or wine to dabble in too.
The Exhibit is a bar, cinema and diner in Balham, London. Showing the latest blockbusters, as well as some golden oldies we all know and love, this kitsch bar is a favourite amongst Londoners, with a 2 course dinner and a cinema ticket for just £15.95, every Tuesday or Wednesday.
Not only fronting two quirky dining rooms, a large beer garden and a brilliant food and drink offering; Gorringe Park in Tooting also has its very own hidden boutique cinema room, screening kids films in the day, and adult movies every night. The cinema is kitted out with retro seating, comfy beanbags, and screens a varied selection of movies, week-in week-out.
Taking place Cafe 1001 in Shoreditch, this monthly event will bring you the best new independent movies from around the world. There will also be a chance to network with other creative minds across the night, as well as vote for your favourite film.
With free popcorn, quirky entertainment, summer cocktails, hotdogs and a grandiose theatre-style setting, you'd expect this London cinema night would be quite a bit pricier than it is. But you'd be wrong; because if you head over to The Grand for their cinema season, you'll only be paying a very reasonable entry fee.
Block Party Cinema is one of the coolest film and moving screenings around, hosting classic and thought-provoking films and documentaries, with a pre-film DJ set and big red beanbags to watch it from.
