Free films for September

When this rainy weather finally blows away and September is swiftly upon us, you can enjoy a whole host of free films in the (hopefully dry!) open air. More London Free Festival is back once again with a cracking line up of movies for you to enjoy.

The Scoop is a fantastic open air amphitheatre located right next to Tower Bridge with stunning views of the river Thames and the City of London. If you can drag your eyes away from the views you can get your fill of current, retro, classic and cult movies over the next month (2-24 September) without spending a single penny.
