Fantastic London - free films at The Birkbeck Cinema

Titled "Fantastic London", The Birkbeck Cinema is currently showing another series of films presented by the London Screen Study Collection. The theme of the series is "London re-imagined".

These screenings are free and take place every Tuesday at 2.30pm. 9th December is the finale and highlight of the series - another chance to catch "London Loves" which was shown last month in Trafalgar Square as part of The London Film Festival. This is a harvest of excellent rarities from London's archives including clips of Fluffers cleaning the London Underground, Eel and Pie Houses and "The Elephant Will Never Forget" from 1953 which documents the moving story of London's last trams.

The Birkbeck Cinema is located at: 43 Gordon Square, London, WC1H 0PD
