About Silent London
“The authority on silent movies in the UK” – National Post
“Everything you need to know” – Pam Cook
“A witty, erudite & engaging love-letter to the dawn of cinema” – Robert Ross
“The beating heart of the capital’s silent film revival” – Ithankyou
Silent London aims to keep people in London informed about silent film screenings in the city – plus a few other events that might be of interest. If you’re new to the blog, start by checking out the Calendar page and click on the events to find out more about each one.
The site is written and edited by me, Pamela Hutchinson – I’m a journalist, a Londoner and silent film enthusiast. This is a post the Bioscope blog wrote about the site when it was just getting started in 2010. And this is a piece I wrote for the Spectator Arts Blog about the silent film scene in London at the beginning of 2011. I regularly write about silent cinema for a range of publications and sites (links here), and I have appeared on Radio 4, the BBC World Service and Monocle 24 radio.
If you have found this website, and you like it, but you don’t live in London, why don’t you do what Daniel in Los Angeles did, and set up your own site for your local area? I highly recommend Silent LA to silent film fans in Southern California.
Silent London was set up in 2010 and is written and edited by Pamela Hutchinson. The beautiful logo was designed by Patrick Kingsley.
