CARLISLE - THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE LONSDALE CINEMA
Let’s travel back in time to the golden age of the cinema in Carlisle. We have evocative film of The Palace in Botchergate but the star of our movie of the month for January is the Lonsdale Cinema which was built in 1931. Thousands of people have memories of the Lonsdale whether they went to see The Beatles play there or went to see some of the thousands of films that were shown over the decades. Cumbria Film Archive was there for the very last film to be shown. If you have memories of the Lonsdale you are sure to love this look back into our cinematic past.
MOVIE OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 2021
It’s your opportunity to slip down our time tunnel again for our movie of the month for February. This time we have some marvellous nostalgia from the lake district. We are in the Keswick area during a different era. The town was popular even then with tourists but how times have changed. Now you can relive the past with us.
