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. Since 2010, The Nomad has earned the reputation as ‘London’s best outdoor cinema’ (Evening Standard), popping up at an inspiring range of beautiful, curious and downright strange screening locations across London and beyond.
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.
Even though they seem to live the life of riley, its not always easy being a Royal. Just think, while we were all enjoying the Jubilee with soggy burgers at rainy barbecues all over the country, it was probably work work work for poor old Liz – and sometimes Royals need a holiday too!
This is exactly the case for bored, restless Princess Anne (Audrey Hepburn) in William Wyler’s 1953 gem, Roman Holiday. As she takes an exhausting trip around Europe, it is in the beautiful Rome where she decides to go a little crazy and break free from a life planned out by an assistant so regimental she makes Ann Widecombe look cuddly. On her big, bold breakout she meets the dashing American journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), who just so happens to find the scoop of his life!
