The last projectionist

Lawes, Tom; Lawes, Tom, director

'The last projectionist charts the amazing history of UK independent cinema, taking a tour of some of the most magical picture houses in the world. The story centres on The Electric in Birmingham, the oldest working cinema in Britain. From its silent beginnings in 1909; to a news and cartoon cinema during WWII; a porn cinema in the 70s & 80s; then saved from demolition and restored to its art deco glory in 2004." --Container
