Bar Elba Rooftop Cinema

Bar Elba are upping the ante for outdoor cinemas with some of the most breathtaking views in London and bottomless drinks, too! Sophia Savage reports.

It’s going to be a busy summer down at Bar Elba. Last week, the venue announced that it was launching a series of bottomless brunches and we’ve just discovered that the Waterloo bar are launching a new cinema event, too!

Bar Elba’s Rooftop Cinema will open on the 12th of April 2021 with a fabulous line up of films including Black Panther, Queen and Slim, The Hangover, Mamma Mia, Dirty Dancing and many more.

“This summer, we’re serving you a cinema in the clouds. That’s right join us on the rooftop as we bring you the ultimate night out for any film fanatic. We’re talking popcorn, Prosecco and pop-culture icons” says the website of the event.

Go all in with bottomless Prosecco!

The venue are also offering movie lovers a fantastic bottomless drinks offer so that you can really make it a night to remember. This may make focusing on the movie rather more difficult, but, if like us, your only entertainment for the last year has been squinting at Netflix on a dingy laptop, then you will probably appreciate the opportunity to go a little crazy.

Immersive yourself in cinema quality sound

Each ticket will come with a set of headphones to immerse yourself in cinema quality sound (and to ensure that your popcorn gobbling does not completely drown out the dialogue) and Bar Elba will also have a stall selling the usual cinema food suspects ie like popcorn & ice cream.
