Picture Palaces

11 May, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Get ready for being back in the cinema… and one of our Blue Badge Guide Rachel Kolsky ’s all time favourite lectures.
Sit back and re-live the glory days of cinema going. From the first flickering images seen on screen in London in 1896 to London’s Flikr Alley of pre-WWI and the early purpose-built Picturedromes, through to the atmospheric Astorias and ‘picture palaces’ of the 1930s, this is also an opportunity to appreciate again the iconic architecture of the Essoldos, Odeons and Granadas of yesteryear, and the entrepreneurs who shaped British cinema-going trends.
If day or time are not convenient , a recording can be sent to you to watch within 3 days of the Zoom presentation.
