Be the first to re-tread the history of London through film at the The London Film Museum at Covent Gardens on the 10th-11th November.
The Birth of Cinema is acknowledged as being December 28th 1895, when the Lumiere Brothers showed their first public screening in Paris with their cinématographe. It was not long before London got in on the act as well, and film was made a special part of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
Lights! Camera! London! is an exhibition showing off rare costumes and props, as well as old film extracts and stills, to illustrate how London has been the setting for many pioneering films for over a century.
See documentary footage of War Time London, including imaginary depictions of the capital in an apocalyptic state. You will also see a vivid portrayal of sixties music, fashion, and working life.
The exhibition does not officially open until 19th December, but there is a two-day preview on the 10th-11th November.
