by Appropri8 Theatre in London, Greater London, England

Artistic Director Sarah is an actor and architect with a passion for film and theatre making. She trained as an architect at the Architectural Association and as an actor at Drama Centre, Central St Martins.  Appropri8 unites these passions. 

Cine-Theatre 1 transformed the site of the Old Paddling Pool at Millfields Park into a dual function pop-up; a cinema and open air theatre for, a day in the month of June 2017, as part of The London Festival of Architecture and now after winning some funding from Tesco Hackney and Groundworks we are back for Cine-Theatre 2018. 

The Old Paddling pool, which has been disused for several years, has an amphitheatre like quality which lends itself to the creation of a stage. 

We hope to host to the work of local filmmakers and performers and create a place where the diverse, Clapton community could engage in a shared experience.  We hope to return in 2019 with an expanded programme.

The Cine at the Old Paddling Pool is viewed as a testbed project for a process that could be rolled out across various sites in London.
