BFI Outdoors At British Museum: A Room With A View + Helena Bonham Carter Intro

Beautiful cinema in beautiful settings

"A movie with exquisite period detail."

- Entertainment Weekly
The BFI returns to the British Museum to present al fresco cinema on a dizzying scale for the launch of our next major national project: Love. Enjoy sunset screenings of classic films, which memorably evoke the heady promise of summer love. Arrive early to enjoy the offer from Benugo, where supper and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available to purchase before the screenings begin. Tonight's offering is Merchant-Ivory’s 1985 production of E M Forster’s novel, A Room With A View. A moment of passion threatens to overturn everything when Lucy Honeychurch, a young Englishwoman touring Italy with her older cousin, finds herself un-chaperoned in the ravishing Tuscan countryside. Expect top-drawer performances from the British ensemble cast, stunning location photography and exquisite period styling. And, in a recent announcement, the BFI were happy to let us know that the screening will be opened by none other than Helena Bonham Carter. Witness a slice of film history introduced by movie royalty. "Decent, honest, truthful and, dearest of all to Forster, it connects." – Time Out "An example of British period filmmaking at its best." – Film4 Certificate: 12. Runtime: 1 hour 33 minutes. Please note that chairs are not permitted, although you are free to bring your own cushions and rugs to make yourself comfy.
