Bristol Cinemas: Magic Of The Movies

Do you remember those far-off days when a visit to the Cinema was a really special occasion?

This souvenir documentary recreates an era when picture houses provided a magical escape from the daily struggle. A time when it was considered sinful to leave the auditorium without showing respect to the National Anthem. A time when Bristol had more cinemas than any other city in the country apart from London.

Join cinema historian Bill Knight on a nostalgic tour and re-discover some of your favourite haunts of days gone by.

The recollections of projectionists, usherettes and cinemagoers complement some fascinating old photographs, interspersed with Pearl and Dean advertisements from the 1960s and 1970s. The story is brought right up to date with the multiplexes of the 21st Century.
