Fans of festive flicks are being encouraged to bring their chairs down to an outdoor cinema.

Riverside Gardens in Erith will be hosting a pop cinema, screening two Christmas classics on Saturday, November 26.

Cinemas have popped-up all over the capital in recent years, including in cemetries, pubs, a dairy and a brewery.

Erith will start its screening of Home Alone at 4.30pm, which will be followed by Gremlins at 6.30pm.

The screenings follow Erith Riverside Shopping Centre’s Christmas fair on the same day, which lasts from 10am to 4pm.

The event is part of the Greater Erith programme, which aims to bring more people into Erith.

Linda Bailey, cabinet member for regeneration and growth, commented: “The Greater Erith programme is set to see a range of activities take place in the town centre to celebrate Erith’s heritage, animate the town centre, encourage shoppers and promote local businesses.

“I’m delighted that the first event is so unusual and so in keeping with the start of the festive season.”
