Christ Church is often used as a setting for film projects created by students from Greenwich University. Professional TV companies occasionally use the church for screen tests. Christ Church Vicarage was the setting for scenes from the documentary Churchill and Me.
The church owns a Draper 90 x 120 inch Draper collapsible screen for back projection, making it possible to host community cinema in the church. We screened Ben Hur as a outdoor cinema event for the Cultural Olympiad in 2012.
Films that we plan to screen in the church, under licence, include:
East of Eden, directed by Elia Kazan, 1955
All Quiet on the Western Front, directed by Delbert Mann, 1979
Chocolat, directed by Lasse Hallström, 2000
Babette’s Feast, directed by Gabriel Axel, 1987
Quo Vadis, directed by Mervyn LeRoy, 1951
