Cinema Museum

Opened in 1998 the museum hosts a cinema and film history collection unrivalled in the UK. Hallways are decked with classic movie props, original posters and artwork, portraits of stars, projectors and memorabilia dating back to the dawn of cinema. Two rooms hosting screenings and events are furnished with reclaimed red velvet seats and short screenings form part of our tours. Archives containing over a million stills, thousands of rare publications and films are a magnet for researchers and students. We remain at risk of closure due to redevelopment, see our website ‘home’ page for details.
