Isis featured in An American Werewolf in London (1981) about 2 American tourists in Yorkshire who are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals admit exists.. The flat in the Square belongs to Alex (Jenny), a pretty young nurse who becomes infatuated with one of the 2 American college students (David) , who is being treated in hospital in London...

The Pembroke pub, formerly the Coleherne, dates from the 1880s and had a long history of attracting a bohemian clientele before becoming known as a gay pub.. A lifelong resident of Earls Court Square, Jennifer Ware, recollects as a child being taken there to Sunday lunch in the 1930s, when drag entertainers performed after lunch had finished.. In the 1970s it became a notorious Leather bar, with blacked-out windows, attracting an international crowd including the likes of Freddie Mercury, Kenny Everett and Rudolf Nureyev.. It also became infamous as the stalking ground for 3 separate serial killers from the 1970s to the 1990s: Dennis Nilsen, Michael Lupo and Colin Ireland.. It sought to lighten its image with a makeover in the mid-1990s to attract a wider clientele; to no avail, as in December 2008 it underwent a major refurbishment and repositioned itself as a gastro Pub with a new name...
