In London Underground’s ‘Skyfall’ Station, A Subterranean Cinema Is Born

In London Underground's 'Skyfall' Station, A Subterranean Cinema Is Born

Here’s a nifty way to get audiences back in movie theaters that actually works: build one underground.

The Underground Film Club will host a series of screenings at Charing Cross, the abandoned tube station where big action set pieces for Bond films including “Skyfall” and “Die Another Day” unfolded. Moviegoing Londoners will be treated to subterranean viewings of “Blade Runner,” “Some Like It Hot,” “Strangers on a Train,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Casablanca,” “Cinema Paradiso” and “Paddington,” which also shot in the station, closed since 1999.

Supported by the British Film Institute and organized by Rooftop Film Club, the pop-up cinema heralds London’s upcoming all-night tube service expected to begin on September 12. Other events include behind-the-scenes tours and a photography exhibit at Westminster station.
