Abstract

Using the findings and data of the AHRC-funded 'Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s' project, this immersive theatre performance recreated the experience of visiting a cinema during that decade. Bringing together 30 actors, 2 directors, 2 producers and 2 cinema venues, 'A Night at the Cinema in the 1960s' was performed twice, once at Phoenix in Leicester on 3 March 2016 and once at Picturehouse Central in London on 29 June 2016. As well as being an output of the AHRC project's research and a means of generating impact from that work, it also enabled the project's researchers to develop a new understanding of their materials.
