Free Greenwich Films

Greenwich Film Festival next weekend has a number of free showings of films connected with the area, including Mike Leigh's All or Nothing (filmed on the Old Haddo Estate on the Greenwich side of Deptford Creek), The Golden Compass (partially shot at the Royal Naval College), G:MT (South London late 1990s music movie, includes a scene shot in The Venue, New Cross) and The Railway Children (being shown at Well Hall Pleasaunce, where Edith Nesbit wrote the story). Best of all, Antonioni's Blow Up (with David Hemmings and Vanessa Redgrave) is being shown next Saturday in Maryon Park, Charlton, a key location in the film.
