Sometimes, the best things in life really are free.
Name a better combination than a great film, unlimited popcorn and a free drink. Can’t think of one? Nope, us neither. And on Tuesday, August 14, Roof East is combining all three, by hosting the first screening of the film of the summer – The Spy Who Dumped Me. The Stratford-based rooftop bar is known for its spectacular views over the former Olympic park and London City skyline, which makes it the perfect location for spending a summer’s evening.
In the past, it’s played host to any number of street food stalls, interactive games and urban park space events. But soon, thanks to an exclusive screening by Lionsgate, It’ll also become the only place you can watch the upcoming film in the UK ahead of its release on August 22. Promising to be filled with feel-good comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me follows the story of Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) when they unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy.
Sit back as the sun sets and watch the pair journey across Europe after one of the women discovers her ex-boyfriend was actually a spy.
You’ll get a welcome drink in the private rooftop cinema to watch the first screening of The Spy Who Dumped Me and bottomless popcorn to keep you going throughout the night. There’s also a crazy golf course, De La Bowls Lanes and Sluggers batting cages available for two hours before the exclusive showing. It’s not often that we find ourselves presented with everything we could need from a night for free. Entertainment? Check. Snacks? Check. A free drink to wash it down? Check – we’re jumping at the chance.
So, what’s the catch? Trick question: There isn’t one. However, there are only a limited number of tickets available for the night. The first batch has sold out, but the next batch will be released Friday, August 10, so make sure to head to the Fever app to claim yours.
The Spy Who Dumped Me shows at Roof East on August 14. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
