The onslaught of digitalisation has taken its toll on the romantic notion of a cinema and its projectionist. But, in celebration of its own treasure of cinematic history, The Phoenix is opening up its projection room as part of a free behind the scenes tour this Sunday morning. You’ll get to have a snoop around while the house lights are up, and learn about the history of one of London’s most beautiful and well-preserved old auditoriums from a team of knowledgeable volunteers.
