From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

"The Lost World" above the World was a promotional event organized on 6 and 7 april 1925 by First National Pictures for the movie The Lost World. Presented as the first cinematograph ever constructed in an aeroplane with a screen in the saloon on an Imperial Airways machine [1], the movie adapted from the Arthur Conan Doyle's novel The Lost World was shown to a dozen happy few during a flight over London.

On 6 april, the flight was from London to Paris. And on 7 april the flight was around Croydon.
