9 Great Chapel Street
The VHS Video Basement is in an old language school just off Oxford Street. Films are projected straight on to a big white wall in an auditorium that seats about fifty, which they’ve kitted out with a digital projector, 16mm projector, and VHS (for the old-school).
‘The Class of ‘09’ have been living in the disused language school on Great Chapel Street for three weeks. Aiming to rekindle a sense of community in film-lovers and provide an alternative to overpriced cinemas in the area, screenings are often followed by open discussions.
There’s food too, if you’re not that fussy and can handle some sarnies sourced from the bins outside Pret and Cafe Nero. They also have a sense of local history – one table is covered with photographs of some of the many Soho cinemas that have long disappeared from the area.
