The Rio Cinema is an amazing, Grade II listed, independent Art Deco cinema in the Heart of Dalston. When growing up, Little Nan used to travel through ‘The Pipe’ (Blackwall tunnel) from her home in Deptford and used to sell ice-cream and sweets at the Rio Cinema on Wednesday & Saturday nights. She often spoke about the parties she attended in the basement back in the 1930’s!
