Silent Cinema

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 (6-10pm).

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.

The film for Friday 9 September has been voted for you the public from a shortlist of films featuring ZSL London Zoo itself – with Withnail and I the winning film!

Your Silent Cinema ticket includes:

  • Guided after-hours animal tour
  • Cinema under the stars
  • ‘Silent’ screening with comfy headphones

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

Please be aware that there will be no cash point available on site, however a select number of vendors can accept card payments. If you wish to be able to have the choice of all vendors at the screening, we would advise guests to bring cash.

P.S - Don’t forget to bring a blanket to sit on!
