1926 Early cinema and Charlie Chaplin - an afternoon at the Cinema Museum, Kennington

Wednesday 13 November 2:15 PM to 4:15 PM

Price for single attendee: £20.00

From 1900 the cinema was a transformative element in people’s lives, providing an utterly novel form of entertainment and a new view
of the wider world. The Cinema Museum, in the former Lambeth workhouse of the 1870s, offers an insight into the early decades of
cinema and we will have a private guided tour, concentrating on those crucial early years. We will also celebrate Lambeth’s most famous son, Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977), the screen’s first international superstar, born 130 years ago who grew up in hardship and poverty and spent time in the very institution we shall be visiting. Here we will see the High Gothic chapel/assembly space. Meet at the Cinema Museum, 2 Dugard Way, off Renfrew Road, London SE11 4TH. Tube, rail or buses: Elephant & Castle; or tube: Kennington. £20. Booking required.*
