The Last Projectionist charts the amazing history of UK independent cinema, taking a tour of some of the most magical picture houses in the world. The story centres on The Electric in Birmingham, the oldest working cinema in Britian. From its silent beginnings in 1909 to its restoration to art deco glory in 2004. 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. Director and owner of the Electric Cinema, Thomas Lawes, will be at the Picture House to introduce the film and take part in a Q&A.
Tickets priced £8 available from Hebden Bridge Visitor & Canal Centre, 01422 843831, and direct from the Picture House during opening hours.
