Throughout the year Sam Nightingale conducts a number of artist-led cinema walks around the historic sites of Islington’s former cinemas and picture palaces.
The walks are a great opportunity to learn both about the history of the countless cinemas that dotted Islington’s streets but also to look beyond the contemporary cityscape to discover the rich history that can be found below its surface.
In snowy February a brave crowd of cinema sleuths joined Sam Nightingale to walk the length of Holloway Road in search of the spectral traces of the road’s cinematic past. Sam will once again be conducting this artist-led cinema walk on Saturday 8th of June 2013.
