Fleapits and Picture Palaces
This 25-minute documentary, produced collaborative by members of the Cinema and Television History (CATH) Research Centre, explores the history of cinema-going in Leicester and its surrounding area. Connecting trends in local cinema culture with the broader national picture, it locates archival images and clips within the history of the rise, decline and resurgence of cinema-going as a popular activity. The film was screened several times at the Phoenix cinema in Leicester during 2015 and 2016, and has become a cornerstone of the Leicester Cinema History exhibition at DMU's Heritage Centre.
