A pop-up cinema is screening classic British films after sunset in Beckenham Place Park this summer.
Sunset Screening Sessions is presenting a diverse programme of ten films each Friday night in the Homestead Café, running until September 10.
An impressive outdoor screen measuring 9×7 metres has erected inside the restored Georgian stable’s patio area, at the heart of Lewisham’s largest park.

A spokesperson for Sunset Screening Sessions said: “Diversity is the central pillar to our film selection.
“Our 10 films paint a colourful and culturally vibrant picture of Britain.
“They include comedy, horror, romance, LGBT, Black, arthouse cinema and much more, dating from 1928 all the way to the present.
“Highlights includes a live music score (The Lodger), a Q&A with the iconic Julien Temple (Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan) and a dog-friendly screening (23 Walks).
“All but one of the films (I Am Not A Witch) are set either entirely or partly in London, some of them not far from Beckenham Place Park itself.
“You will feel very much at home!”
This Friday is a special dog-friendly showing of 23 Walks, directed by Paul Morrison and released last year.
It tells the story of a retired divorcee’s romance with a fellow dog walker who she meets on the hills of Hamstead Heath.
Sunset Screening Sessions, which launched this year, is a partnership between Infinita Productions and DMovies, who have exhibiting films across the British capital since 2017.
