Chin chin, a new bijou movie house is on the scene that’s perfect for date night. Enter The Cineroleum: a street side cinema reviving the tradition of 1950s suburban cinema-going glory.
A collective of young artists, designers and architects have transformed the site of a derelict petrol station on Clerkenwell Road into a hand-built cinema celebrating the extravagance and ceremony of the picture palace.
Primarily constructed using donated and found materials, The Cineroleum will be an improvisation of the decadent interiors that greeted audiences during cinema’s golden age. Popcorn, paper tickets, elaborate signage and flip-down seats, collectively recreating the nostalgic excitement of cinema-going.
Screening from sundown four nights a week, the programme spotlights a night of Buster Keaton shorts to Night of the Living Dead (note: especially good for revelers seeking cosiness with film date).
Opens Friday, August 20th through to mid-September. Make haste and book your tickets, the first weekend is already sold out.
For films, dates and times of The Cineroleum, £5, located at the derelict petrol station, 100 Clerkenwell Road, London, EC1M 4RJ
