London’s Silent Cinemas

November 2015 · Links

London’s Silent Cinemas explores the history of cinema exhibition in London from the emergence of permanent film venues in 1906 to the end of the silent film era around 1930. It was developed by Dr Chris O’Rourke, using research undertaken during a Research Associateship funded by the UCL Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects (CHIRP), and is intended as a resource for cinema researchers and teachers, historians and anyone interested in the early days of film exhibition in London.
