The Cinema Museum is devoted to keeping alive the spirit of cinema from the days before the multiplex. Set in historic surroundings in Kennington, close to the Elephant & Castle, the Cinema Museum houses a unique collection of artefacts, memorabilia and equipment that preserves the history and grandeur of cinema from the 1890s to the present day.

A registered charity, we are housed in the old Lambeth Workhouse, with its historical connections to Charlie Chaplin. We receive no public funding. As part of our fund-raising campaign to secure the Museum’s future and establish it as an exciting new London venue, we host film screenings and live talks.

The Misty Moon Film Society holds cosy evenings with actors and actresses from cult TV & Film with a limited audience of 40. The evenings include a Q&A hosted by Misty Moon’s outrageous MC Chris Collins, an autograph and photo session and a meet and greet with the guests.

The audience and guests love Misty Moon because of the intimate experience they get. As we say to everyone, “It is like going to a friend’s house for a couple of drinks and to chat about your favourite film”.

The guests we have had include: Danielle Harris, Ken Foree, Michael Berryman, Lynn Lowry, Fenella Fielding, Robin Askwith, Richard Kiel, Kate O’Mara, Nicola Bryant, Katy Manning, Louise Jameson, Sarah Douglas, David Barry, Linda Regan, Anita Harris, Brian Murphy, Madeline Smith, Caroline Munro, Sally Geeson, to name but a few.

The Misty Moon Film Society is working in association with The Cinema Museum to bring some of our shows to this beautiful venue.
