Propeller TV Hold Screening At Old Cinema Chiswick

Supported by Propeller TV, The Old Cinema in Chiswick will re-open its doors on November 14, 2007 at 7.30pm for its first film screening since 1934.
Hosting an evening of short films is said to be a way of celebrating Chiswick's local history whilst providing a unique venue to showcase the work of emerging artists. The screening will consist of a selection of short films by up-and-coming filmmakers and will be followed by refreshments in the bar area.
The evening will be introduced by Sir Peter Blake and featured artists include Vera Juliusdottir, Johnny Kelly, Trevor Hardy and Kip Hall amongst others and is supported by Propeller TV, the first digital satellite television channel in Europe to screen 100% new and original programming.
Due to limited seating, attendance is by invitation only. Those who would like to be added to the guest list should contact Greta Clough at The Old Cinema on 020 8995 4166 or email details to
The Old Cinema, Chiswick, opened in 1912 as The Cinema Royal a Victorian style electric cinema which survived until 1934 when the fashion for Art Deco cinemas took over. It remained dark until the 50's when it opened as a huge junk shop serving London's bedsitter land. Saved from developers in the 70's the building was restored and opened as a vast antiques and vintage department store.
Now a Chiswick landmark, The Old Cinema remains an independent family business thriving among the chain stores and cafes of west London.
