The Cinema Museum
The Museum has a large collection of safety film of all gauges, including adverts, trailers, B-movies, public information films and newsreels. Additionally, nitrate films are in secure storage at the BFI National Archive, with whom the Museum collaborates.
Many unique films have been saved, copied and preserved by the Cinema Museum, including around 80 titles from the Blackburn-based Edwardian film pioneers Mitchell & Kenyon, and a collection of silent colour travelogues from early last century
London’s Cinema Museum is devoted to keeping alive the spirit of cinema from the days before the multiplex. Set in historic surroundings in Kennington, close to the Elephant & Castle, the Cinema Museum houses a unique collection of artefacts, memorabilia and equipment that preserves the history and grandeur of cinema from the 1890s to the present day.
