Old cinema ticket

Cinemas of the 1960s are often remembered as smoky places, without much in the way of refreshments. Yet audiences also recall the experience of going to the cinema in the 1960s as somehow much more satisfying than today, whether because of the films themselves, the viewing environment, or the social experience of cinema-going. Join Dr Melvyn Stokes and Dr Emma Pett to reflect on the differences between going to the cinema in Britain in the 1960s and today.

A drinks reception follows in the Roberts Foyer G02.
