Join the KQ and Islington Guided Walks for a stroll through more than 100 years of Islington cinema-going, between Angel and Essex Road stations. We’ll encounter Victorian showmen, architectural wonders and tales of bad behaviour in the stalls. Discover hidden gems and hear what a night ‘at the flicks’ was like decades before multiplexes and ‘Barbenheimer’.
The walk lasts around 1.5 hours, starting at Angel station and ending near Essex Road station. The tour will start promptly at 18:00, please arrive from 17:45 onward outside Angel Station.
Nigel Smith from Islington Guided Walks will be leading the tour. Nigel is a Clerkenwell & Islington guide who specialises in tours on cultural and social history.
