A FILM celebrating 1980s Islington opened for one special night at the Screen on the Green on Monday.
The “stars”, all local people, mingled with an appreciative audience for the 50-minute Heritage Lottery-funded film, Everytime I Think of You, made by the Blueprint Theatre Project.
Co-director Sally Rose said the film, a drama documentary, was based on interviews with Islington residents and traders at Chapel Market. “It deals with what some people describe as an age of innocence, before mobile phones and the internet changed our lives for ever.”
David Twydell, who chairs Chapel Market Traders Association, appears in the film alongside trader John Papworth. Mary Owen, who works at Marks and Spencer, is also a star.
• Everytime I Think of You will be online from today (Friday). It can be viewed at www.blueprinttheatre.co.uk
