Summer Film in South Bank
Summer in the cinema calendar can be a time of great contrast. Not too many decades ago it was traditionally a farrow period for the movies, in between the important festivals and away from audiences choosing to head outside in hope of sunnier times. Then Steven Spielberg made Jaws, invented the summer blockbuster and ever since the year’s biggest films receive their debut before the leaves start to turn. Catering for fans of both the bolder things in film as well as those seeking out a quieter route to cinematic nirvana, South Bank offers up an endless supply of big hitters, explorative seasons, escapist dramas and thought-provoking flicks across each of its heralded hubs.
