Sky Movies shines through the summer showers

To celebrate the launch of the Sky Movies Summer channel this month, a bespoke Sky Movies ice cream van will be travelling around the UK giving out free ice creams to local residents. It visited The Queen’s Stone at Bernie Spain Gardens by Upper Ground, London on Tuesday 17th July at 11.00am.

Visiting London, Swansea, Manchester and Edinburgh, the Sky Movies ice cream van will show film clips and distribute ice creams to those out and about enjoying their summer while the Sky Movies Summer channel will feature a fantastic selection of blockbusters for the whole family to enjoy at home all summer long.

Favourites to watch out for on the Sky Movies Summer channel include sci-fi thrillers X-Men: First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and fantasy blockbusters such as Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Toy Story 3, Mr Popper’s Penguins, The Smurfs and Puss in Boots. The season finishes with a comprehensive comic book season that includes Captain America, Thor, The Green Lantern, Megamind and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies said, “Sky Movies Summer/HD brings together all of our fantastic blockbusters and family favourites so our customers know that, all summer long – come rain or shine, there will be a movie on this channel to entertain the whole household.  And this summer – as ever – Sky Movies will be bringing customers a host of unmissable premieres, a fantastic range of films across 9 genre channels and over 600 movies to enjoy wherever and whenever with Sky Anytime+ and Sky Go.”
