The Granada (2013) Documentary | History | Education 125-year old Walthamstow entertainment venue

Did you know that The Beatles, Frank Sinatra Jr, Johnny Cash and The Rolling Stones all performed in Walthamstow?…

Neither did we until we began our project to explore the hidden history of the EMD Granada Cinema.

Over a period of several months a group of young filmmakers from Dv8 Training unearthed the forgotten story of the iconic, 125 year-old entertainment venue. Working closely with respected videographer Ashton John, the team visited museums, delved through archive footage and arranged interviews with projectionists, musicians and local residents to bring the cinema’s rich history to life in a short documentary.

The participants gained essential film making skills, completed Bronze Arts Award qualifications and delivered a documentary that adds an invaluable chapter to Walthamstow’s historical legacy. We would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund for investing in the project, project partners Small Green Shoots, Dv8 Training, Industry In The Streets (IITS) and Walthamstow Library, as well as Vestry House and The BFI for their support.
