Description

Artist-led cinema walk

2pm – 3.30pm 30 June 2012

Approx 1.5hrs (timings may vary).

All on pavements, flat terrain.


THE WALK IS NOW FULLY BOOKED - BUT PLEASE PUT YOUR NAME ON THE WAITING LIST AS MORE TICKETS MIGHT BECOME AVAILABLE

There are also tickets still available for the exhibition talk Sam Nightingale will be giving on the 28th June, which will include the artist talking about the Islington's Lost Cinemas project, see here for tickets: http://artiststalksamnightingale.eventbrite.com/


Join artist Sam Nightingale as he takes to the streets of Islington in search of lost cinemas.

To coincide with his exhibition at A Brooks Art (3 May-30 June), Sam will lead a walk around Angel, Essex Road and Upper Street in search of Islington’s Lost Cinemas – taking an illuminating journey into local cinema history.

This walk is an opportunity to learn both about Islington’s rich cinematic past and the chance to discover the layers of history that are often hidden within the architecture of the urban everyday.

In this walk we will see cinemas that are still standing, even if no longer used, picture-palaces that have left only spectral traces of their former glory and structures that need our imagination to project the past into the present.


Free: Limited to 15 places, please book ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Participants will be notified of the starting point of the walk in June.

Note: All participation is at walker’s own risk.
