Project Description

Cinema Furore was set up as a community cinema in late 2003 in the newly renovated Coronet on New Kent Road. According to its founder, Fintan McAlindon, the cinema would provide “a refreshing alternative to the antiseptic multiplexes.” It screened blockbusters alongside work from local film groups and distributors including NEON, the Community TV Trust, Kush Films, Freestyle and the Aylesbury Media Project (AMP). The cinema closed in the summer of 2006.

Cinema Furore held the industry direct course ‘Basic Skills Introduction to Video’ at local further education institutions Morley College, London College of Communication and London Southbank University, with an explicit all ages, abilities and backgrounds inclusivity policy.
