About Us

Welcome to the Leytonstone Pop-Up Cinema, a place to meet new people and watch interesting films at your local cinema.

The Leytonstone Pop-Up Cinema is brought to you and run by volunteering film enthusiasts from the Leytonstone Film Club, which started with a magnificent sold out launch night during the Leytonstone Festival in July 2008 with a screening of Leytonstone born director Alfred Hitchcock’s early silent film ‘The Lodger’, where actress and local resident Natasha Little (This Life, Vanity Fair, Spooks) spoke about how wonderful it was that the place that had given birth to one of cinema’s greatest director’s was again to be home to regular film screenings.

Since then, starting every Autumn, we have run increasingly more popular and successful seasons of film screenings that normally culminate with a special programme during every year’s Leytonstone Festival in July. Then, after a Summer break, we come back again in either September or October with another new and exciting season of films with a range of award-winning and critically acclaimed titles, including a mixture of some of the best independent, world cinema and classic films.

Screenings are held on the first Wednesday of every month. All screenings take place at Leytonstone Library, Church Lane, E11 1HG (just off Leytonstone Tube Station). See map for how to get there. The admission fee is only £5 (£4 concessions).

In this site you can find a list of our previous screenings, our exciting programme of future releases as well as a comprehensive list of links to relevant institutions and organisations involved in promoting the film culture, particularly around Leytonstone and East London.

For more information about our programme of screenings or activities, or just simply to let us know what you think about the club, please email us using the Contact Us option.

You can also find us on Facebook, here and on Twitter here. Go have a look!
