Cinema Memory and the Digital Archive

Were you named for a movie star? Did your British ancestors go to the cinema?

Building on work at the University of Lancaster, Cinema Memory and the Digital Archive helps researchers and the public in their quest for information about the silver screen in the 1930s and beyond.

The website features pictures, postcards and other memorabilia from 1930s cinemagoing in Britain, a period when going to the cinema was at its height.

At present, the website has about 30 interviews, planned to grow to 100 by September, with people who were enthusiastic cinemagoers during that decade.
