Cinemas of Haringey is a nostalgic treat for cinema buffs. This 140-page well-illustrated book describes the histories of more than 40 cinema buildings in various parts of Haringey. It tells the history from the early shop conversions, purpose-built cinematographs, through the 1930s picture palaces to today’s modern multiplexes.
The book is researched and written by a locally-based cinema enthusiast and HHS member. It includes a number of previously unpublished photographs and also records the memories of local residents’ visits “to the pictures” and those of staff who used to work in these local cinemas.
