Despite being underground, Aldwych has had its fair share of limelight! Film fans may be interested to know that the station has featured in a number of films:
  • The Gentle Gunman (1952)

Also the music video for The Prodigy's song "Firestarter" was filmed in the disused eastern tunnel and one of the unused lift shafts
Some even say the station is haunted by the ghost of an actress from the Royal Strand Theatre which was demolished to build Aldwych in 1905.
