London Underground film map, 1916 – 2016

We’ve made the map to celebrate the annual Scalarama film festival, which happens all across the United Kingdom in September and in an independent cinema or living room near you.

Here’s a link to the map on its own page. Here’s a guide for £4 to the entire map, listed in order by film, date and Tube station, plus seven linked essays exploring London from the pre-Roman city to Brexit Day 2019.
