Read a review of the first Cinema on the Steps in REORIENT magazine →
Cinema on the Steps brings an exciting selection of contemporary Middle Eastern artists' film to an outdoor cinema on The Mall. Sitting on the Duke of York steps, audiences will be able to watch three individually curated evenings of artists' films by some of the leading names working in the region, set against the backdrop of St. James's Park.
The three days of screenings are curated by Abdellah Karroum, Alia Al-Senussi and Abdullah AlTurki, and Ahmed Mater.
The Cinema on the Steps opens at 7.30pm - please see individual events for film start times. The ICA Bar will be serving food and drink that can be enjoyed outside on the steps. Audience members are welcome to bring a small cushion and blanket, and food and drink in plastic containers.
Our caterers Peyton and Byrne will be serving drinks and food on the steps throughout from a specially created menu (view menu PDF).
Presented in association with Qatar Museums Authority. Part of Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture.
