Kennington StoriesKennington Stories is a two-day film festival produced in collaboration between Anthology, The Cinema Museum and Created Out of Mind. Anthology’s initiative is a celebration of their exciting new development proposals for Kennington Stage. Along with proposing new private and affordable homes and courtyard spaces, Anthology are also working with The Cinema Museum to allow them to remain in the Masters House and secure their long-term future on the site, supporting culture and history in Kennington. The festival coincides with The Cinema Museum’s 21st anniversary in the Masters House, a former workhouse in which local-born star Charlie Chaplin was once an inmate.

The event will involve a series of film screenings and a film competition. Go back in time and enjoy the cinema experience. There is something for everyone!
