Screen on the Green Islington marquee

Cinematic history in Islington


The Screen on the Green is one of the most famous landmarks in Islington, London. The building as we see it today was opened in 1913 and it is one of the oldest continuously running cinemas in the UK. From being a trailblazer of cinemas, it fell into disrepair and by the 1970s was something of a fleapit.


It was reopened and reinvented by Romaine Hart and was seen as a model for new stylish cinemas in the UK. As well as showing movies it became a venue for bands like the Sex Pistols and a place to be seen.

35mm magic


The cinema still has its wonderful old projector and through the dedication and passion of the Everyman team regularly presents 35mm films. When I went to photograph the projection room, Nick Davey was loading The Big Lebowski for an early afternoon screening.
