Outdoor Cinema at Battersea Power Station
This pop-up cinema is part of a pop-up festival called Power of Summer Streetfeast organised by Everyman cinemas. Watched over by the towering chimneys of the power station, Londoners can indulge in delectable street food cooked up by the likes of Le Bun, Spit & Roast, Popdogs, Mama’s Jerk and loads more. As the name suggests, it's located on the riverside of the iconic power station which offers some fine views of the Thames and also of London's most iconic landmark.
Besides the square of food stalls selling all kinds of street foods from burgers to hot dogs and wraps, there is a large field with benches and low tables on which visitors can play giant Jenga and Four in a Row games. There's a beer and cocktail bar as well as a champagne and prosecco bar.
We opted for the beanbags which were so comfy that I had a hard time getting up from mine when the movie finished. We ended our afternoon enjoying the summer sun with a few glasses from the prosecco bar and some curly fries. Looking up at the four chimneys overhead, I was wondering what we will find here this time next summer. I'm afraid an outdoor cinema it won't be.
The Power of Summer is still on till the 31st of August. Find more information here.
