St. Albans – From Alpha To Odeon

January 2010 · History

Seating indicator and usher's uniform on display at the Alpha to Odeon exhibition in St. AlbansIn 1998 we contributed to an exhibition by the St. Albans Museum – ‘From Alpha To Odeon’ – covering film activity in the town. Alpha Films, which was based there early in the 20th century, was the company of Arthur Melbourne-Cooper, an important pioneer filmmaker. We contributed a category board and other items, including this seating indicator from the Capitol Aberdeen and this usher’s uniform from our James F. Donald (Aberdeen Cinemas) collection.
