A Century of Cinema


This is a review of a Century of Cinema in the Potteries – changing fashions in film from early Slapstick pre-WWI, the first story films, the big pictures of the 1920s – and talkies, musicals, serials and Colour in the 30s – through to wartime and post-war movies, the development of local cinemas and their decline in the face of TV in the 60s. Enlivened with interviews with Managers, Projectionists and Usherettes – and some vintage cinema ads - we bring alive the thrill of going to the Pictures in the old days.     40 min
