Silent Cinema

6 Sep - 10 Sep 2016

Join us for a week of film with an animal twist!

This September ZSL London Zoo will be opening its gates for five nights of outdoor film screenings.

Taking place after hours, a giant screen will be put up in the Zoo's grounds and guests are invited to wear a pair of headphones for the screening, ensuring the animals still get a sound night's sleep.

Delicious food and drink will also be available to purchase from a selection of vendors.
