Join us for the next Barbican  LFF Watch Party. This month's pick is Alfred Hitchcock's Jamaica Inn.

Jamaica Inn was made at a key stage in Hitchcock's career and was the first of Hitchcock's adaptations of Daphne du Maurier (the others being Rebecca and The Birds).

Jamaica Inn is a film with historical and curiosity value and also marks the only occasion that Hitchcock worked with the celebrated actors Charles Laughton and Maureen O'Hara.

To take part in the Watch Party, click the embedded link above or ​here​​​ to watch the film and take part in the online conversation on Tue 21 Jul at 6.30pm. You can also join the conversation on Twitter by tagging ​​​​ and using the hashtag, #llfwatchparty or ​#JamaicaInnWatchParty​​​

Talking Hitchcock - a history in Leytonstone

In this episode of the GeekSweat podcast, I interview local historian and Hitchcock expert Gary Lewis, live at the Stone Space gallery as part of the Barbican's "Leytonstone Loves Film" event.


The Leytonstone Picture Palace, The Stone Space Gallery, London E11 - 12 September to 6 October 2019 

“The picture theatre supplies folks with the flavour of romance…an architectural harmony of richness and restfulness”
(Theodore Komisarjevsky, The Ideal Kinema, 1930).

In 1911, The Rink Picture Palace opened at 829 Leytonstone High Road. This cinema would become a fixture of the High Road for decades. Despite the affection it was held in, Leytonstone’s cinema closed its doors for the last time in 1974, and the building (including interiors by the internationally renowned designer Theodore Komisarjevsky) was demolished.
Artist Dominic Stinton payed tribute to Leytonstone’s lost picture palace by recreating it in a multimedia, multi-sensory exhibition, featuring specially made film short films, newly recorded interviews, archival materials, the appearance and texture of red velvet drapes and the scent and scent and taste of fresh popcorn.

Part of Leytonstone Loves Film, produced by the Barbican in partnership with local residents and organisations. Commissioned by the London Borough of Culture 2019.

a portrait of walthamstow market (2007) -part 1

Walthamstow Market is an iconic and much-loved North east London institution, but in 2007 Dominic Stinton captured the market in a state of flux as longstanding traders and customers reflected on the history and changing face of the market with a mixture of pride, humour, criticism, optimism and trepidation. Nominated for Best British Documentary at the Soho Shorts Festival. Featured on BBC London and ITV London tonight.
