Since it opened in 1913, The Castle in Clapton has been a cinema, a bingo hall, a shoe factory and a snooker club. Now, after raising £57,000 on Kickstarter, a local couple has restored it back to its former filmic glory. And it’s gorgeous. There’s an art deco bar – all elegant marble tables and velvet cocktail chairs. The boutique cinema is a bit of a stunner too, with a petite screen, 80 retro hotel seats and a curved ceiling covered in ornate gold plasterwork that’ll make your face look like the heart-eye emoji.
