Mercato Metropolitano in partnership with ETHIKA and THE ITALIAN JOB present the outdoor cinema summer series are counting down ‘The 30 Best Movies Of All Time’.

Every Sunday and Tuesday, we’re bringing you the best movies as voted for by Empire Magazine to our market in Elephant and Castle (The Piazza). Slight twist, we’re only including those under two hours long.

There is no booking fee or entrance ticket and seating is available on a first come first served basis. Show times will be from 7.30pm Sunday and 8pm Tuesday.

Popcorn, snacks, cocktails, mocktails, beer, prosecco and soft drinks will be available throughout the evening, and we suggest you arrive early enough to try some amazing food from one of the 40+ street food traders on site.
