The Cinema Museum was launched out of collector Ronald Grant’s affection for the cinema experience before the rise of the corporate multiplex. Admiring everything from the grand architecture to the theatricality of film posters, the excitement palpable in advertising materials to the fashion of staff uniforms, Grant amassed countless wonderful items as cinemas started to close in the 1960s and 70s. The resulting collection restores the exhiliration and charm that was once inherent to going to the pictures.
