Drive-ins never really made it to the UK, and it remains one moviegoing experience I've yet to sample. But watching a movie outdoors, with a rapt and eager crowd, can be a glorious thing. I've enjoyed several open air cinemas over the years — in Locarno, Spain, and even here in the UK.
The Film4 Summer Screen season at Somerset House in London has become a welcome fixture on the movie calendar and kicks off tonight with a People's Premiere of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. I shall be there. And I'm hoping it doesn't rain.
