Community and heritage cinemas

Client: Ross Thorne / Newtown Flicks

Description: A series of 'for the love of it' and pet video projects, many of them concieved and produced by theatre Historian Ross Thorne and others under the banner of Newtown Flicks.

A loose collection on a related theme. Some tell stories of community groups who have revived old cinema buildings and running movies for local audiences and others concentrate on the architecture of old cinema buildings.

The revival and reuse of the cinema buildings is largely due to the efforts of volunteers working in conjunction with local councils to create a sustainable community meeting place that is accessible to all ages.

On some of the projects I was just the camerman (most of the Ross Thorne videos) and on others helmed the ship.
