The Museum Contributes to a Documentary about the Phoenix Cinema

January 2011 · News

When the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley, north London, celebrated its centenary year in 2010, On-Par Productions were invited to document the cinema’s history through the stories of its staff, patrons and local residents. The Cinema Museum was pleased to be able to collaborate with loan of stills from the collection.

“I thought that the whole tone of the film; its quiet pace, its beautifully shot detail of the old projector, the space given to people like the projectionist to talk about their work, all came together to make a delightful and memorable appreciation of a rather special place.” Michael Palin
