Electric Cinema

London’s Electric Cinema celebrates its century with the Eclectic Electric All-Nighter on Saturday 26 February, screening a selection of films from the Cinema Club’s 1970s programmes.

The much-loved Notting Hill cinema, designed by Edwardian architect Gilbert Seymour Valentin, opened 100 years ago today on 24 February 1910 and has enjoyed a colourful history ever since.

Guest curated by Peter Howden, Saturday’s all-nighter kicks off at 11pm with Michael Powell’s misunderstood masterpiece of psychological terror Peeping Tom, followed by Roger Corman’s psychedelic The Trip, Kenneth Anger’s underground biker movie Scorpio Rising and finishing off with cult sci-fi film THX 1138, George Lucas’ first feature film.
