Did you go to the cinema in 1960s Britain?

We are conducting a major AHRC-funded research project which aims to shed light on the social and cultural history of cinema. To many writers, sixties films summed up the changes transforming British society, but the films themselves reveal nothing about how they were received and remembered. We want to find out how cinema-goers remember the films they saw.

We are asking anyone who went to the cinema in 1960s Britain to share their memories with us by completing a short questionnaire.
