If you enjoy films and love Croydon then this walk is a perfect cocktail, making a fun evening out, visiting film locations and following up with a show of Croydon based film clips. The walk starts at 7pm, in St George’s Walk, at the junction by the Alchemy Bar and the Roti Masters cafe.
Over the years Croydon town centre has featured in many Films and TV Shows. During the Croydonites festival earlier this year, Richard DeDomenici gave a tour of the Croydon Film Locations as part of the première of American Assassin: Redux on 18 May 2018.
After learning about Richard’s amazing work, and enjoying the tour and the clips so much, we organised another walking tour with help from Richard DeDomenici and the Croydonites Festival organisers.
The walk visits many sites in Croydon used as film locations. After the walk we will be screening clips from these films just off South End at the South United Church Hall, Heathfield Road, Croydon, CR0 1EQ, doors open 8:30pm, show starts 9pm. (Our usual Club Night venue.)
The walk starts at 7pm, in St George’s Walk, at the junction by the Alchemy Bar and the Roti Masters cafe. St Georges Walk has been used in many films and TV shows, and also re-used in Richard DeDomenici’s “American Assassin: Redux”. Early arrivals can get a snack from Roti Masters, last orders 6:30pm, and a drink in Alchemy, before setting off on the walking tour at 7.
Some films sites we will visit with clips to follow in the COPSE hall:
The Da Vinci Code 2006
The Sandwich Man 1966
Strippers vs Werewolves 2012
American Assassin 2017

The walk is free and is open to COPSE members and anyone else who would like to come along. The walk will be led by another Richard as the original Richard DeDomenici is having a fabulous time somewhere else on the day so sadly he is unavailable.
