“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

“The authority on silent movies in the UK” – National Post

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. I regularly write about silent cinema for a range of publications and sites (links here), including Sight & Sound and the Guardian’s Silent but deadly! series, and I have appeared on BBC radio and TV.

Silent London began life as a listings site for silent film screenings in London. That is no longer the case.

So if you like what you read, and you want to talk about silent films, leave a comment, or get in touch on Twitter or Facebook.


Silent London was set up in 2010 and is written and edited by Pamela Hutchinson. The beautiful logo was designed by Patrick Kingsley.
