Description: Twickenham Film Studios is a film studio located in St Margarets, London, England, that is used by many motion picture and television companies. It was established in 1913 by Dr. Ralph Jupp on the site of a former ice-rink. At the time of its original construction, it was the largest film studio in the United Kingdom.[1]

Numerous films have been made at Twickenham, including Carol Reed's The Stars Look Down in 1939, and Seymour Hicks's Scrooge (1935).

In the 1960s classic films such as Alfie starring Michael Caine, The Italian Job in 1969 with Noel Coward, Roman Polanski's first English language film in 1965 Repulsion; Be My Guest in 1965, featured Jerry Lee Lewis an early appearance by the young actor Steve Marriott and The Nashville Teens.

In 1969, The Beatles used the studios while rehearsing music for their album Let It Be. A film was made of some of the sessions, and both the film and the album were released in 1970. The Beatles had previously used Twickenham for their films A Hard Day's Night and Help! and for their promotional film for Hey Jude.

In the 1980s, the studio was used for The Mirror Crack'd, An American Werewolf in London, A Fish Called Wanda, Blade Runner, and Brother Sun, Sister Moon.

Later films include The Others, Layer Cake, The Crucible, Interview with the Vampire, and Sweet Revenge.
