Banksy’s Lambeth Palace Cinema

6

Banksy created this pop-up cinema, called the "Lambeth Palace", for the premiere of his Academy Award nominated documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop”.

Banksy’s pop-up cinema was created in the abandoned railway tunnels underneath Waterloo train station. He created it to host the premiere screenings of his motion picture debut production. This 150-seat cinema only existed for one week, but the space is now used by The Old Vic for theatrical productions.

Banksy created more than just a cinema. He created a space wherein many of his unique artworks were exhibited. He even had a portable snack bar in the form of an abandoned ice cream truck.
