This summer North London is hosting a new innovative cinema experience never seen before. An old petrol station on Clerkenwell Road is being transformed into a historic traditional cinema, and from the 20th August the ‘Cineroleum’ will be showing classic films at sunset four nights a week.
This impressive conversion, mostly made using donated or found materials, is aiming to reconstruct a traditional cinema interior, including old fashioned seating and a curtain around the cinema hanging from the petrol station roof. Heres’ a picture of the petrol cinema currently, and for more pictures check out The Cineroleum’s Flickr pictures.
The cinema is still under construction but tickets have just gone on sale for the first Cineroleum screenings here. Cineroleum screenings are not for profit, so the tickets are a bargain at only £5 each, with the doors opening at 7.30pm with films starting at 8.30pm. For more information and pictures of the cinemas construction check out the Cineroleum website.
