Swords and Sandals Outdoor Cinema Presents: Carry On Cleo!


The brilliant Carry On Cleo is getting an outing on the big screen this Summer as part of a special screening of films in the City of London. Cleo, which starred Sid James, Amanda Barrie, Joan Sims, Kenneth Williams and Kenneth Connor, is one of the finest of all the Carry Ons, thanks to its sparkling script and sumptuous costumes and sets (left over from the Liz Taylor epic.

"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!" This unforgettable line by Kenneth Williams’ Julius Caesar was voted the funniest ever film one-liner. Truly a British comedy classic, this film is a hilarious parody of the Elizabeth Taylor epic, Cleopatra. 

Brought to you by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Pop-Up Screens and supported by the Barbican, this is one (inflatable) summer screen not to be missed. Come prepared for all weather; bring a picnic, someone to feed you grapes, plenty of blankets and cushions; and settle down to enjoy swords, sandals, superstars, silliness and songs on the site of London’s first entertainment arena.

Plus, tuck into Italian street food, accompanied by a beer or cocktail. Enjoy pop-up events and talks on selected evenings. And see how the Romans entertained themselves with a visit to London’s Roman Amphitheatre which is open until 9pm.

Please note that no chairs are provided and no glass or bottles can be brought into Guildhall Yard for these events. Please dispose of your rubbish carefully.
