5 Fabulous Things for This Valentine’s Weekend

February 2021 · News

Each year The Cinema Museum hosts a sparkling ‘thank you friends and neighbours’ party.  That can’t happen this year, so, thanks to ArtFund, we have created something to make your Valentine’s weekend special.

  1. Watch our serenaded film show
  2. We worked with photographer Francesco Zavattari and composer/musician Neil Brand to create a beautiful little film of our museum with Neil’s stunning piano rendition of Cinema Paradiso. So, get yourself an eaty/drinky valentine treat – click here and feel the love!

  3. Be an armchair warrior
  4. We can’t do as much as we’d like under lockdown – but you can help SAVE THE CINEMA MUSEUM from your armchair! Despite promises since 2018 we are still waiting for our landlords to keep their promise and sell us our home – so sign and share our ‘save the cinema museum’ petition.

  5. Have a Valentine’s Weekend spend up
  6. We have loads of lovely museum goodies for sale – treat yourself or a loved one to a Valentine vintage poster or an amorous accessory – it’ll lift your spirits and make our bank manager’s weekend.

  7. Secure your tickets for our reopening (TBA) party
  8. Make a donation of £75 to our charity and we will be in touch to give you a VIP ticket for two people to attend our roaring grand reopening (TBA) bash.

  9. Help someone else get through this
  10. The Cinema Museum uses its assets to support the people of Lambeth and Southwark and particularly the elderly; the disabled; the LGBT+ community; families; ethnic minority groups; and our local artists. Please share some love and donate a little something to these important and valuable causes:

    • Age UK Lambeth support older people to live enriched, productive and purposeful lives. Our older citizens gave us life, brought us up, paid their taxes and kept the world turning – we want to show them our love and respect
    • The Albert Kennedy Trust (akt) supports LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 who face or experience homelessness or are living in a hostile environment. Our younger citizens are our future – we want them to feel valued, encouraged and hopeful
    • Neil Brand is a local a English dramatist, composer, author and pianist – he gets no government support, despite having lost his main income streams. Artists give our world joy – we want to ensure that we don’t emerge from COVID into a world without musicians
