  • This place is very, very close to the Elephant and Castle and isn't anything like as well known as it ought to be - or shortly will be, I suspect. Over Christmas, we booked onto a thoroughly enjoyable guided tour of the cinema museum in Kennington. It's run by volunteers for ten pounds you get to see old artefacts, hear stories, see old films and even get a free cuppa and a biscuit
  • This is an excellent Museum full of fascinating objects dating back to the early days of film and motion pictures. It's a MUST SEE collection for anyone interested in the film industry.
