BFI Classics this Summer at the Southbank + Win Tickets!

If you’re in London town and looking for something to do this summer, then why not check out a film at the Southbank and have a drink at the Riverside bar. Over the coming few months of July, August and September the BFI are screenings some classic films in their Extended Run series.

Coming up at the start of August is the Robert De Niro classic Deer Hunter, definitely a good one to see on the big screen. Satyajit Ray’s mesmerising Charulata and the Beatles’ first film, a Hard Day’s Night also showing.

Here are some highlights, but check the BFI site for full listing and times.

The Deer Hunter
1 August-19 August 2014
Robert De Niro stars in this multi Oscar®-winning film set around the Vietnam war.

A Hard Day’s Night
3 July-17 July 2014
The Beatles’ first film is energetic, fresh and funny.

The Lady from Shanghai
25 July-21 August 2014
Orson Welles’ deliciously tortuous fourth feature, now restored, is at once a virtuoso film noir and a mischievously witty pastiche of the Hollywood thriller.

Some Like It Hot
18 July-21 August 2014
One of the funniest films ever made, digitally restored and back on the big screen.

22 August-September 2014
The beautiful, brilliant and bored heroine Charulata is brought to life by Satyajit Ray.
