MOVIE OF THE MONTH

Welcome to our Movie of the Month - our special feature that will take you on a journey deeper into Cumbria’s past.

Each month, we will post a new archive film in this section that has been thoroughly researched and edited to give you a maximum time travel experience.

All you need to do is click on the video below to begin your journey down the time tunnel. Every month the movie will change so there will always be something new to discover. We will feature films from all over the county and on all sorts of different topics. We will also let you know what the next movie of the month will be so you won’t miss out.

A ROYAL COUPLE LEARN ABOUT SHOE MAKING

Our Movie of the Month for November takes us back to the 1930s. K-Shoes in Kendal was a leading industry in the area. The footwear factory really was at the top of its game and was honoured by a visit from the Duke and Duchess of York. Cumbria Film Archive has been given access to this fascinating footage. Just a year later there was the abdication crisis and the Duke and Duchess were propelled into the spotlight to become George VI and Queen Elizabeth. There is also some atmospheric film of the famous K-Shoes fete. Enjoy this great trip into the past.

In December our Movie of the Month will feature a film capturing the atmosphere of Barrow over half-a-century ago. It is an absolutely fascinating glimpse into the past.
