So this is pretty good: for three weeks Everyman Cinema are operating a open air cinema for nada right on the canalside steps down to the Regent’s Canal, with a selection of films to “celebrate summer love in the city”. Highlights include a lunchtime Grease and West Side Story on the same day, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, The Graduate and The Wizard of Oz. And in the nearby Everyman Cinema you can catch critically acclaimed 120 BPM, Call Me By Your Name and Moonlight. During the daytime, Wimbledon is showing – so everyone’s happy. 27th June – 15th July. Free tickets and more info here.
FOOD: Mother Clucker roosts here
For the past five years, trading from their converted US Army Ambulance, the MC team has been something of an authority on Southern fried chicken in the capital, with their melt-in-your-mouth strips and fiery Cajun fries. Now opening their first permanent joint on what’s surely the most competitive eating street in central London, the owners insist it isn’t an average chicken shop. Go see for yourself. 49-51 Rosebery Ave EC1. More info here.
SHOPPING: Go (Antiques) Anonymous
It’s an underrated strip of central London, with a damn fine market and equally destination antiques and vintage shops. So why isn’t Church Street NW8 more on the map? Well, the second annual Antiques Anonymous Flea Market aims to correct matters. Expect artisan coffee vendors, street food stalls and live music – plus 70 dealers, as well as pop-ups and exhibitions. Free entry (11-5pm). 24th June, Church Street, NW8. More info here.
