Cinema shows Bristol life in 1950s and 60s
SHORT films of life in and around Bristol in the 1950s and 1960s will go on show at Clevedon's Curzon Cinema this weekend.
An open weekend is being held at the picture house on February 16 and 17 where the collection of heritage cinema technology will be on display to the public.
One of the most extensive collections of vintage cinema equipment in the UK, and the largest to be housed in a working cinema, the collection now features over 300 items, dating from the silent era right up to the dawn of the digital age.
Included are cinema and home projectors, toy projectors, editing equipment and cameras. As part of the weekend, a selection of short archive films will be screened in the mini cinema on the top floor of the Curzon.
