Product description

Product Description

The Last Projectionist charts the amazing history of UK independent cinema, taking a tour a some of the most magical picture houses in the world. The story centres on The Electric in Birmingham, the oldest working cinema in Britain. From its silent beginnings in 1909; to a news and cartoon cinema during WWII; a porn cinema in the 70s & 80s; then saved from demolition and restored to its art deco glory in 2004. This fascinating, and as yet untold story, is brought to life by former staff, industry experts and customers, one of whom recounts her first visit in 1917. Accompanied by unseen archive and beautifully shot in HD, the film goes on to explore the rapid advance of digital cinema and the likely demise of 35mm film. Is this really The Last Projectionist?
