Danny Boyle does it again
The Press Play rooftop summer series wouldn't be complete without returning to Broadway House. The intimate rooftop space provides a unique setting to enjoy a classic film whilst taking in the London Skyline. BBQ food, drinks and Pops (the world’s first champagne ice lolly) will be on offer from 7pm; and, as always, you'll receive a free bag of Propercorn with every ticket. Tonight’s screening is Danny Boyle's 2000 thriller, The Beach. Based on Alex Garland's best-selling novel, a baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio plays twenty-something Richard, a backpacker travels to Thailand to find himself. This sounds like a very familiar story, but this is not a tale about cocktails in buckets and full moon parties. After a strange map comes into his possession in equally strange circumstances, he finds his way onto a beach paradise inhabited by a traveller commune who are totally loving life. Of course, this tropical bliss can't last, can it? "An irresistible story." – The Guardian "Entertaining, engrossing, and ripe for discussion." – Empire Doors open at 8pm; film starts at sunset (around 8:30pm). We would recommend bringing a jumper, rug, pillow, anything to keep you warm and snug. No refunds are accepted unless the event is cancelled.
"DiCaprio delivers strongly."
