The end of June saw the conclusion of the second series of curated cinema programmes based on MACE’s collections and promoted under the banner Midland Journey.
In the course of the year long project MACE delivered twenty four bespoke programmes of local interest into thirteen venues and three rural cinema touring schemes across the Midlands. The screenings were attended by a total audience in excess of 2,700 people.
The popularity of these programmes drew a wide range of different people to cinemas as far apart as Hereford and Sleaford in Lincolnshire.
We are in the process of planning the next series of local programmes so keep an eye on the news section of this website. In the meantime, if your local cinema is interested in hosting an archive based screening then why not ask them to contact Phil Leach, who researched and curated each of the programmes in Midlands Journey II.
Of course none of the screenings would have been possible without funding support from EM Media and Screen WM, for which we are grateful.
