Sumptuous Cinemas of the South East

Along the way I’ve met so many people who are as passionate about cinemas as I am. One of them, Jack Beard, I came across when I was searching for picture of a single cinema seat for the front cover of Cinema Lumiere. He’s such a fan that he devoted his degree to photographing some of the south east’s most delightful picture-houses. From the Phoenix in east Finchley to the Electric Palace in Hastings, his luscious images will make you go a little misty eyed, before rushing out to your nearest (obviously independent) cinema and sinking down into that soft red velvet seat.
