The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema was launched in September 2017 and is funded by Tower Hamlets Council as part of its Thriving High Streets Programme. This innovative community cinema venture not only aims to involve local people in running their own regular film club by screening great movies from around the world, but also support the borough’s high streets and town centres with diverse pop-up events.
To date, The Hamlets has held two film screenings, a training session and a Q&A with award-winning actor-turned film director Tauquir Ahmed from Bangladesh. Screenings and events are open to borough residents and non-residents alike.
