'I sipped cocktails and had incredible views of London at rooftop cinema and it was great value'

London's original outdoor cinema - Rooftop Film Club - is hosting a Brat Summer inspired by Charli XCX’s new album, Brat. Venues in Peckham and at Roof East, Stratford, are bringing nostalgic '90s vibes with a lineup of classic films.

Until the end of August, you can enjoy flicks from ‘99 like Cruel Intentions, Jawbreaker, The Virgin Suicides and 10 Things I Hate About You. We watched Pretty Woman at Roof East and were transported back to the ‘90s!

They give you warm blankets for the chilly summer nights, and noise-cancelling headphones with amazing sound quality. Popcorn options range from sweet and salty to mixed and salted caramel.

The space is beautiful, with comfortable lounge chairs and tables for your snacks. The highlight is enjoying the movie while taking in the stunning 360-degree views of Stratford.

Tickets start from £12.95 and can be booked at rooftopfilmclub.com. Considering the unique experience and vibrant atmosphere, I think it's great value.

Peckham's Bussey Rooftop Bar is also releasing a new lime green Brat Summer cocktail to match Charli XCX’s album cover. The cocktail is made with vodka, pineapple juice, lemon juice, honey, matcha and a pineapple garnish, and you can get it for £10.50.

We also ate mouth-watering Turkish pizza from one of the three street food stalls at Roof East. I chose the vegetarian option, with cheese, grilled aubergine, courgette and tomatoes, and it was the ideal movie snack.

Before or after the movie, make sure you explore Roof East's colourful space filled with mini-golf, play ball, and other fun games. Note that there's an additional fee for each game.
