Going To The Pictures

The Going to the Pictures Project Film

The cinema memories we have recorded through the project have helped to create a short film which gives a glimpse into what Going to the Pictures was like from the 30′s to the 60′s. The film uses a mixture of first hand testimony, archive photograps and film.

The film was created by film maker Christina Condron and up and coming new film maker and project volunteer Sean Reynolds, who have filmed over 50 interviews with local cinema goers and staff from the ‘golden age of cinema’. Additional camera assistance was provided by Bill Morris, John Lines and Beth Greenwood. Sound and image editing support by Jordan Plant.

Archive photographs were provided from Sefton Records Office, Liverpool Records Office and Keith Rose.

We would like to sincerley thank all those who shared their cinema memories on camera with us for the Going to the Pictures Project. We have enjoyed sharing your memories and appreciate your time and contribution inhelping preserve our local cinema heritage.

The Going to the Pictures film was screened at the Project Showcase Event at the Plaza Community Cinema in March 2013.
The full film will soon be available to view through this website.
