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.

“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.”
