Launched in September 2012, FILMBOX is a pop-up community cinema based at Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts. It is a ‘not-for-profit’ venture run by staff and A level student volunteers from Langley Park School for Boys, Beckenham in the London Borough of Bromley. We are not directly funded by LPSB but we are very grateful for the support and encouragement of many members of our School community. The name FILMBOX was chosen by Yr13 students, our logo was designed by Sarah Wickings and ident film by Simon Burgess, both LPSB Yr13 students in Sept ’12.
FILMBOX was a twinkle in the eye of Vivienne Clark (a teacher at LPSB and writer on film/media) when the new school building programme was announced, which grew into a bright projection beam-sized ray of light when she first saw the little studio theatre/cinema in Room 609 in January 2012.
FILMBOX is a full member of the British Federation of Film Societies (BFFS). It is held in Studio 609, a dedicated studio space with HD Blu-Ray projection, stereo sound and tiered seating (max 84 seats). In the first instance, FILMBOX will run on a monthly basis (except for August). We open for a social gathering at 6.45pm and the introduction to the film starts at 7.30pm sharp. Notes on each film will also be provided online.
