A travelling cinema is reminding London of its heritage
4th December 2014

The KinoVan has archives of film footage taken throughout London's history - including a frozen Trafalgar Square from the 1960s.

It hopes to connect Londoners with their past as it drives through London telling the capital’s story with its historic footage.

Anyone can step inside the van to see how London has changed and compare our modern city with what it was like decades ago - the changes in some cases are startling, and it isn't just the architecture. The tour began at the British Film Institute. 

Fun fact: kino is the Polish, Czech, Croatian, Norwegian and German word for cinema.
