Maverick Projects and The Peckham Society present an evening of archive films, photos and live music celebrating the streets of Peckham and Southwark over the decades.
From newly-discovered early 1900s slapstick comedies made at the Gaumont film studios on Champion Hill, to Peckham street parades in 1913, bomb damage of the Second World War, streets of the Swinging Sixties, the draining of the glorious Surrey Canal, right up to the violence of the 2011 riots. We will be taking over the former Electric Cinema space on Rye Lane for one night only, bringing you the history of our streets.
The films and historical photographs will be accompanied by a series of great local musicians including a silent cinema pianist, a blues guitarist and a rock band as well as a DJ mixing old 78s. It promises to be a really exciting event with a new take on presenting a visual history of our area. Come along and experience this one-off cinema experience with us!
