Winter Film Club @ Peckham’s former Electric Theatre / until Friday 23rd December 2016 ? ❄️

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: various

@ Winter Film Club, 133 Rye Lane, Peckham, London SE15 4ST

Tickets: £13 book online

www.winterfilmclub.com

The film-loving folk behind London’s Rooftop Film Club have brought the magic of the silver screen back to one of London’s earliest cinemas with the launch of Winter Film Club.

The cinema has taken residency in Peckham’s cherished Electric Theatre and is ending the run with a selection of Christmas showstoppers.

Staying close to their Peckham roots, the Winter Film Club has set up home in the stunning Edwardian cinema – First open to the marvelling public in September 1908, it was one of the first of the pioneering and influential Electric Theatres across London. After winning last year’s battle against turning the space into luxury flats, Winter Film Club is celebrating the theatre’s rich heritage by returning the space to its original purpose. With beautiful decaying walls, exposed original features and a 16’ x 9’ screen, Winter Film Club is sticking to the cinema’s original ethos – etched on the old theatre’s door – ‘To Elevate, Instruct and Amuse’.

Home to a licensed bar serving festive liquid refreshments and concessions to grab a snack or some freshly cracked popcorn to share. Settle in to a deckchair, slip the head phones on, step back into time and watch a festive favourite amongst one of London’s unique settings.
