Live at the Granada Walthamstow – a short film

As Walthamstow builds up to the reopening of the EMD cinema as the Soho Theatre, the McGuffins has released a film about the musical history of the building. The McGuffins led the campaign to save this building for our community.

The film highlights the venue’s role as a significant live music destination during its glory years as a true ‘cine-variety’ theatre.

Playing host to legendary rock and pop groups, world famous solo artists plus jazz ensembles and the big bands, many of the most successful and influential musicians of the 20th Century regarded it as a key British concert hall. The film features rare archive images, footage and memorabilia plus recreations of some of the most iconic performances which took place during the venue’s long history.
