Hippodrome 100 Touring Exhibition
A new exhibition celebrating the magic of cinema has been touring to community venues
in September to November 2012.
There used to be at least twenty cinemas across the Falkirk area from Bonnybridge
to Grangemouth and Larbert to Brightons. Each had a special place in the community
and everyone has a story to tell about going to the pictures.
Cinema has grown from the silent era, through the dark days of wars and a golden
age of stars, to a severe decline in the 1970s. In the 21st century, the picture
palace is making a comeback with innovative new technologies and more independent
cinemas like the Hippodrome re-opening.
Now Showing tells the story of cinema-going in the Falkirk area from past to present
drawing on famous faces, memories, photos and artifacts held in the Falkirk Community
Trust Archives, the National Library of Scotland and the Cinema Theatre Association.
