Free Summer Screening Programme returns to Leicester Square Gardens this August ( @DiscoverLSQ )

For the second successive year, immerse yourself in free, family friendly films as Leicester Square rolls out the red carpet for the return of its Summer Screenings.

Opening its gates from Thursday 8th August to Sunday 11th August, Leicester Square Gardens will be screening something for everyone. Tim Burton’s live action re-imagining of Dumbo will bring the perfect finale to our opening day, as an ideal family fun night out. The schedule will also include the 1985 classic Back to The Future and the worldwide musical sensation The Greatest Showman!

A large LED screen ideal for outdoor viewing will be in use at London’s best pop-up open air cinema, ready for London’s finest film buffs, who can kick back and relax in the deck chairs provided.
