A new organisation, the Free Range Film Club, has announced that, subject to licence and permissions, it is to present a series of “bijou movie screenings” in Brockwell Park next month.
The club says capacities will be strictly limited, with allocated spaces for groups socially distanced from others.
Tickets, for over-18s only, will be £22 per person, with an optional £2.15 insurance charge to obtain a refund if you need to cancel. They will be sold only in twos and fours.
Audio for the films will be through wireless headphones, disinfected between uses.
“Bespoke street food and cold crafty tipples” will be on sale. There will be no on-site parking and cycle racks will be provided.
“A range of safety measures”, including stewarding, one-way systems, enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures, will be in force. Toilets and hand sanitising stations will be available.
Chairs, large umbrellas and “camping furniture” will not be allowed, nor will animals except assistance ones. Bikes must be parked outside in the racks supplied. Food and drink – except for sealed and refillable water bottles – and any glass container will be banned. On-site food and drink will be sold by card only.
Wheelchair viewing and accessible toilets will be available, email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance to discuss requirements.
Gates open at 7pm and screenings begin at sunset or soon after. Seating in allocated areas will be first come, first served.
Rain will not stop the screenings.
Similar outdoor showings are planned for other venues, including Blackheath common and Three Mile Island in East London.
