I have been working through the information I have here about the Portsmouth Photography and Cine Club in the 1930's and have just written this blog article to get it down for posterity.

I should offer a prize to anyone who can write a convincing scenario for the last film 'The Doctor Vanishes'. It's completely beyond me!


It was fun to do! I especially enjoyed extracting all the references from the local newspapers. It is easy now because I have a subscription to the British Newspaper Archive which allows you to extract and use the text of an article which have been digitised. They liked to make films as well as watch them. Fascinating legacy!
There's still time to grab a place for this FREE live online presentation happening on Mon 14th Sept at 7.30pm.

Tomorrow (Mon) @ 7.30pm. A fascinating Zoom talk about a famed photographer and pioneer cinematographer who was highly celebrated throughout the British Empire in his lifetime, yet today is little known of in his birthplace...Gosport!

FREE for Heritage Open Days. Join us on Zoom to learn more.

Hi, are the drive in showings still restricted to 3 people?
Hello there.

I just wanted to register my disappointment with the fact that you are charging per car for your Drive I’m screenings this year. In normal times this wouldn’t a problem as it would be lovely to gather friends together in a car, but due to lockdown, this has completely priced out those of us who live on our own, which seems particularly thoughtless at a time like this.

As a result, despite showing a host of films I’d like to see, I will not be able to support your activities this year as I can not justify £20 to see a film on my own. Surely paying per person during lockdown would have been a far more successful approach, instead of excluding those of us who live alone. It’s a real shame.
Hi everyone!

Just getting in touch about a family-friendly climate change film for children called ‘2040’ and vitally important NOW!

The film will show at Vue Portsmouth today and Sunday only! https://www.myvue.com/cinema/portsmouth/film/2040/times

The main themes are around: empowerment of women and girls; marine regeneration; regenerative agriculture; renewable energy; and circular economy. It's a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action.

Hope some of you can make it! 🌳🌳🌳
