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

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I don’t know about this. While the films are a good choice (as ever) I can’t imagine enjoying sitting in a tube station for too long. My poor lungs are already cringing at the prospect.
