Bill Douglas Centre
for the History of Cinema and Popular Cul online: information and bookings


Founded in 1994, the Centre contains an enormous collection relating to the history of film and visual media. From shadow puppets to Shirley Temple dolls, from magic lanterns to Marilyn Monroe postcards, there is something to fascinate every visitor. Containing both a public museum and an academic research centre, the building housies one of Britain's largest public collections of books, prints, artefacts and ephemera relating to the history and prehistory of cinema. The Bill Douglas Centre opened to the public in the autumn of 1997 as part of the British celebrations of the centenary of cinema. Unlike the majority of these celebrations, the Centre is a permanent facility, encouraging the ongoing enjoyment, understanding and study of the twentieth century's greatest popular art form and its precursors.
