    Enjoy Luna Cinema at the Old Royal Naval College in London this August

    In recent years summer in London has seen a plethora of outdoor cinema events take place. While many promise a unique experience, none match the splendour of getting to watch a Hollywood blockbuster in a setting like the Old Royal Naval College.

    If you’re lucky enough to be visiting London over the August bank holiday weekend and looking for something different to do, Luna Cinema needs be in your calendar. 

    Here is everything you need to know about the event and why Fraser Suites is the best option for nearby accommodation.

    What is Luna Cinema 2019?

    It is a three-day open-air film festival that takes place every summer across London. 

    Where is Luna Cinema 2019? 

    This weekend’s events take place at the historic Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

    When is Luna Cinema 2019?

    It runs throughout the summer. These listings, in particular, take place from Thursday 29th – Saturday 31st August

    What films are being shown at Luna Cinema at the Old Royal Naval College? 

    It’s all about the feelgood at Luna Cinema this year, especially with a back to back dose of Hugh Jackman. Films being shown are:

    • Les Misérables – 29th August
    • The Greatest Showman – 30th August

    How do I get tickets to Luna Cinema at Old Royal Naval College?

    Tickets are available from the official Luna Cinema website.  

    Ticket prices start at £16.50 for general admission. 

    Is this the only open-air cinema in London in August? 

    No. There are others dotted around the city you might want to visit as well. Our picks include: 

    • Movies on the River at Tower Millennium Pier

    A unique way to watch movies. The top deck of a river cruise boat becomes a cinema on the Thames. It’s running all summer long this year, wrapping up on the first weekend of August with Top Gun, Bohemian Rhapsody and The Greatest Showman. You can get more information on the Timeout London website

    • Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

    The most famous open-air cinema in London. Film4 hosts a delightful line-up that includes Black Panther, The Matrix, This is England, Get Out and Reservoir Dogs. You can get more information at the Somerset House website.

    How can I get to Luna Cinema 2019 from Fraser Place Canary Wharf?

    The quickest way to get there is via the DLR. Hop on at Canary Wharf Station and go in the Lewisham direction to Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich. It is the closest station to the event with a 5-minute walk to the college from the station.

    If you fancy a unique experience, you could also get the boat from Canary Wharf down to Greenwich Pier. The ride takes about 10 minutes and is a unique way to see the Thames.

    You can also get a rideshare to the venue. On average it takes 20 minutes and will usually cost somewhere between £7-£12.

    Where can I find accommodation near Luna Cinema at Old Royal Naval College?

    Going to an open-air cinema means you can bring your own picnic, but if you’re staying in a normal hotel room, you won’t be able to prep accordingly. That’s where Fraser Place Canary Wharf can help out.

    Our luxury serviced one bedroom apartments have a fully equipped kitchen area so you can get your snacks and drinks all sorted out before you go. You can pop your bottle of fizz and strawberries in the fridge to be perfectly chilled when you get there (make sure you don’t buy glass bottles as they’re not permitted at Luna Cinema) 

    If you’re here for the bank holiday weekend and need a hub in Canary Wharf for a few days, you might want to check out our luxury studio apartments. You get everything you’ll need from a serviced apartment as well as a great view above the Thames.

    Can I get a good deal on a serviced apartment over the August Bank Holiday Weekend?

    Yes. Just take a quick look at our offers page to see the latest deals we have available and don’t forget you’ll always get the best rate possible when booking directly on site.
