View on Tower of London from Thames

For centuries, the moat surrounding the Tower of London was the last thing many unfortunate guests saw as they went to the execution at the bloody tower. This summer, the moat will serve a completely different purpose – an open air cinema.

The Luna Cinema, an open-air film-screening event company, revealed they would be partnering with The Tower for the first time this summer, with plans to turn the moat into an outdoor theater. From August 9-11, films will be screened at the moat including Star Wars – The Force Awakens, Gladiator, and Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 Romeo + Juliet.

Tickets will cost £17.50 for adults and £13.50 for children under 15. Food and drinks will be available on site and attendees will likely be able to bring their own snacks. Some £30 “premium tickets” will be available, which will come with a complimentary drink, fast-track line access, and a reserved chair positioned at a prime viewing point.

If you’re interested in going, snap up tickets soon before they sell out. This is sure to be a popular event. There is also a rumor that the most will be turned into an ice rink for skating this winter.
