You wait ages for a disused tube station story, and two come along at once. Such as this opportunity to watch some classic movies inside a disused tube station.
Classic films including Strangers on a Train, American Werewolf in London and Blade Runner will be shown inside Charing Cross disused Jubilee line station.
The station has been shut since 1999, when the Jubilee line that it served was extended to the Docklands. The platforms and concourse have since been closed to the public, but have been hired out for film productions.
The screenings, supported by the British Film Institute, are part of the series of ‘Firsts for the Tube’, that includes the recent photographic exhibition at Westminster station and other events taking place on and around the Underground network ahead of all-night weekend services on the Underground commencing on 12th September.
Just over 100 seats are available for each screening, and tickets, which cost £14 each can be purchased through www.undergroundfilmclub.com
