One of London's hidden treasures, The Cinema Museum in Kennington is a unique collection of artefacts, memorabilia and equipment representing the history of cinema going from the 1890s to the present day. Housed in the Victorian magnificence of the old Lambeth Workhouse (where Charlie Chaplin once resided as a child) the collection includes everything from seats to signs, posters, projectors, promotions and over a million still photographs.
The museum receives no public funding and to help secure the future of the collection, a second season of events has recently kicked off with a fascinating series of interviews that include Georgina Hale, Murray Melvin, Shirley Anne Field and a wonderful talk by Sir Christopher Frayling on the movies of Sergio Leone.
