Our physical home is The Cinema Museum, where the Kennington Bioscope was first seeded and nurtured. Due to COVID-19 and Government rules the Museum has temporarily close. Sadly there will be no Kennington Bioscope performance events at The Cinema Museum until they reopen, but we are working together to ensure that happens at the earliest opportunity.  We miss our Museum home and friends but ‘until we meet again’ we've taken the exciting step of launching online, so that you can still enjoy the Kennington Bioscope - available via the Bioscope YouTube channel.

 

In the meantime you can also keep up with news of The Cinema Museum at www.cinemamuseum.org.uk.  Pre COVID-19 they were fighting for the right to purchase their buildings and the fight goes on - you can sign the ‘save the cinema museum’ petition here and they have a fundraising page on JustGiving to help them raise the funds to cover their core costs during closure.

 

The Kennington Bioscope Silent Comedy Weekend has been postponed until 2021.

 

Past Kennington Bioscope online screenings (still available to view on YouTube) include:
