An illuminating journey into Seven Sisters cinema history.
In conjunction with Rowan Arts – Seven Sisters Stories
13 August 2014: 6.30pm-8pm
Approx 1.5hrs (timings may vary). All on pavements.
Join artist Sam Nightingale as he takes a stroll along Seven Sisters Road in search of some of ‘Islington’s Lost Cinemas’.
The walk will explore the history of the various cinemas that have exsisted in and around Seven Sisters. The walk is an opportunity to learn about Islington’s rich cinematic past and the chance to discover the layers of history that are often hidden within the architecture of the city. We will see former ‘picture-palaces’ that are still standing and ‘penny-gaffs’ that leave only their ghostly traces behind.
Limited to 15 places. Details about the meeting point will be communicated once booked. BOOKED UP
