Moving Pictures

Moving pictures uses pioneering cross-disciplinary methods to examine the adaptive reuse of cinemas as places of worship. In doing so, the research captures a vital snapshot of faith and diaspora in the contemporary urban landscape, which may be used to inform future heritage practices. Close readings will be made of three sites in London: the former Ace Cinema in Rayners Lane, adapted by Iranian Zoroastrians; The Ruach City Church in Kilburn by African diaspora Pentecostals; the Azizye Mosque in Stoke Newington by Turkish Muslims.
