Cinema at Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station is to become an open-air cinema this summer

Battersea Power Station has long been a silent star of the big screen - and this summer it is to become a cinema.

The landmark London building - which has featured in films such as The Beatles' Help! and Alfonso Cuaron's 2006 film, Children of Men - is to house Everyman Cinema's Power of Love open air cinema within its grounds from July 10 to August 31.

The nine metre high screen will show cult films including Wayne's World, Pulp Fiction and Drive, as well as Guy Ritchie's Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

The 250-seat cinema - which will include 76 bespoke 'pods' for couples and small groups with table service and shelter from the elements - will also show the Fifa World Cup Final on July 13.

This will be the last summer the public will have access to the Pop-Up Park at Battersea Power Station, which is being redeveloped into luxury homes.

The event, in association with Heineken, will also include catering from Street Feast.

Site admission to the park is free on weekdays before 5.30pm and £5 in the evening and at weekends. Matinee screenings start at £10, child tickets are £7.50 and evening screenings are priced from £15.

Tickets and film programmes are available to purchase at www.everymancinema.com/thepowerofsummer
