Outdoor Cinema at the Barbican

Book now

Barbican’s Outdoor Cinema series returns this summer with a sparkling programme of films to watch under the city’s stars, set in the cinematic surroundings of the iconic Barbican Sculpture Court, complete with a selection of street food vendors and bars.

Enjoy the warm summer evenings filled with fantastic films ranging from cult classics to international gems on a giant outdoor screen, plus mouth-watering street food and drinks.

As ever Barbican cinema curators have created an outdoor programme like no other, inspired by the sweeping vision of some of cinema’s most original storytellers, among them Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Vincente Minnelli, Kamal Amrohi, Michel Gondry, Dee Rees, Hayao Miyazaki, and Ingmar Bergman, alongside the work of two of music’s most inventive artists, Prince and Björk.
