Hot town, summer in the city
by Afro (follow her on Twitter: @foustoon)
It’s almost August and we have been blessed with some really sunny days. I never thought I would say this in this country but it’s time for some air-conditioned rooms don’t you think?
Even if some of our regular screening hosts are going on a well-deserved break, there are fortunately a lot of free or cheap events to make sure you get a good value out of your monthly oyster and a decent night out during the best month of the summer!
p.s As per the usual, click on the titles for more information on venues and times. Most of the films have a free entrance (check brackets when it’s not the case) but for some of them you will need to book your place in advance.
