Join the Showroom and Dr. Sheldon Hall from Sheffield Hallam University for a talk about the Gaumont, Sheffield, which was once the largest first-run cinema in the city. The period from 1948-58 saw significant changes in British cinema-going, from the peak of attendance in the early postwar years to the onset of decline due to television and other factors. The talk will discuss patterns of programming and attendance at the Gaumont, along with audience response, as detailed in surviving management records.
The talk is free – register in advance.
