We will be rolling out the red carpet and inviting you into a relic of London’s past, a vast cinema, reopened after 30 long years, that through its faded facade, screams art-deco decadence like nowhere else. Expect all the glitz and glamour of a hollywood premier: red carpet, roaming paparazzi, scintillating talks from world-class speakers and performers and a mind-expanding mix of talks, music, character actors, popcorn sellers and curious cocktails. We'll be juxtaposing new-school thinking with old-school architecture and getting creative with our cinematic sensibilities.

Speakers include:

Andrew Whitehurst: Oscar-winning visual effects artist, known for his work on Skyfall, Paddington, Harry Potter, and Ex Machina (for which he won the statuette). He’ll be pulling back the veil behind some of cinema’s slickest SFX.

David McCandless: an information designer & data artist (which are some first-class job titles) known for ‘Information is Beautiful’ – he’ll help you make sense of the world with his latest strikingly elegant infographic creations.

Alexandra Ma: a journalist & specialist on both China and surveillance, Ma will give you a rare behind-the-scenes peek into the great, terrifying, Black Mirror-episode-come-to-life that is China’s ‘social credit experiment’.

Sara Gibbs: “recently diagnosed as a comedy writer”, Sara has contributed to The Mash Report and even co-founded a fantastic satirical online women’s magazine (Succubus). She’ll be exploring the perilously fine line between reality and satire.

Alex Baranowski: a Tony-nominated composer and composer of the BBC’s score for the World Cup, Alex has collaborated with artists like The XX, Underworld, and Jungle. He’ll be creating a live “wall of sound in 4D” which sounds exciting, whatever it is.

Professor Sophie Scott: Professor of Neuroscience, Head of Speech & Communication at UCL, and regular BBC science contributor, Sophie will be talking about the science of laughter….
