KinoVan

Image of the KinoVan arrives at the British Museum for a special central London screening

The KinoVan is a mobile cinema showing films from across London, inspired by travelling cinema vans of the 1920s.

Each screening gives a unique insight into your borough's past, with a mix of old home movies and other gems from the archive.

We also reveal the hidden stories behind the films, including memories from the original filmmakers or their families.

All events listed below are free

Last year the KinoVan appeared at various events all over London, including the World Cup '66 Minute by Minute in Wembley, Dagfest, Havering Town Show, Cheam Village Fair, Jubilee Street Party in Brent and the Totally Thames festival. The 2017 KinoVan events will be announced in due course.

“Like a Tardis on wheels, we are giving people the chance to time travel: to stand in front of the screen and see the past hundred years reel before their eyes.”
