This nostalgic compilation of archive film curated by MACE, the screen archive for the Midlands, is a look back at the shared experience of a night at the flicks.

From the closure of the oldest cinema in the Midlands to the Birmingham venue that showed South Pacific for a whole year. Whether you remember being an ABC minor, are nostalgic for the sound of a Compton organ or remember the arrival of Bollywood in Britain, there’s sure to be something to bring the memories back.

Important Notes: This title does not have optional Subtitles. This DVD is made to order. A file is burnt to disc in our technical suite when it is purchased. Waiting time for the DVD can therefore be up to 2 weeks. This compilation has been shown on Vimeo as part of MACE's New Way of Seeing project.
