Boats on Tower Bridge, 1905
A dry description of the content might fail to excite your senses - the evening is a celebration of transport in the capital - but the reality is a fascinating look at how we move around the city. It's easy to forget that the modes of transport we use to get from place to place form a visual and psychological background to our lives, but nothing provides such a joyful reminder as moving images of Londoners throughout history.
More than twenty films from the BFI national archive include Victorian ladies cycling through Hyde Park, horse-towed barges traversing Hackney, Kings Cross and Camden and a skateboarder’s odyssey from the Thames Barrier to the South Bank, all accompanied by acclaimed live pianist Neil Brand.
London Moves Me starts at 6.30pm and is free to watch.
