Free Movie Screenings


Bring a cushion and watch some classic films for free at the outdoor cinema, with each film linking to Southbank Centre’s themed summer weekends. You can power the films themselves on one of the bikes provided by Electric Pedals. The bicycle-powered cinema is 100% human powered and completely off-grid.
