It’s always an exciting occasion when The Nomad joins up with a new venue, and that’s no different with the architecturally exciting Wembley Park where they’ll be pulling out all the stops. For the finale of the Summer season, Pulp Fiction on 30th September, the film will be preluded by a performance by Hypnotik Dance, a dance troupe who’ll bring some of the most iconic scenes in film to life via the medium of dance.

While the Wembley Park screenings may be bringing The Nomad’s summer season to a close, there’s still plenty of time to catch a film in a truly unique setting.

And what better way to celebrate what is looking like an Indian Summer than a special screening of Slumdog Millionaire? On 29th September, The evening will be well and truly spiced up with specially brewed Chai Tea from Chaigram – a pop-up tea stall focused on providing job opportunities for refugees in the UK. And before the film Dhol2Dhol, a local Indian drumming school collective, will be showing off their skills and getting even the least accomplished dancer to bust some moves and channel their inner Bollywood star!

For the summer thrill seeker, 19th century Brompton Cemetery may be the perfect film-viewing location. With the iconic and un-inimitable The Night Of The Hunter screening on the 6th September and two Hitchcock classics, Psycho and The Birds on the 7th and 8th, these screenings are sure to be unforgettable.

And for those more into family classics and less fearsome fare, Labyrinth and E.T. will be screening at Belgrave Square as part of Grosvenor Film Festival. For night owls, The Nomad will be staying up late with Nicolas Winding Refn’s edgy and slick Drive. Head back in time at Wilton Crescent Garden, with screenings of time-hopping flick Back To The Future, and anyone who caught the latest Coen Brothers film, Hail, Caesar! in cinemas this year will surely be keen to catch their depression-era comedy O Brother! Where Art Thou? up on the big screen. With Belgrave Square and Wilton Crescent Garden, The Nomad offers truly unique opportunities to sneak into otherwise locked gardens, only accessed via a special residents key, to watch these brilliant films in the secret gardens of the richest residential squares in London.

If Olympic-fever hasn’t quite worn off yet, then The Nomad will be popping up at Victory Park, East Village, where you can walk in the footsteps of Bolt, Farrah and many more, whilst taking in a programme of films that ranges from Pixar to steampunk, with Inside Out, Mad Max: Fury Road and many more.

And don’t forget to celebrate the best of British at The Biscuit Factory, Bermondsey, where The Nomad will be celebrating the breadth and diversity of British filmmaking with archive screenings, and features: My Beautiful Launderette, Paddington and Alfie.

The sunny weather looks here to stay, so grab your popcorn and join The Nomad’s Indian Summer across London.
