THE LAST PROJECTIONIST

Book Tickets

Showing to coincide with Side By Side, the documentary The Last Projectionist examines the effects of the advent of digital cinema on exhibition. Centred on the Electric in Brighton, the U.K.’s oldest working cinema, it’s the story of a century of cinema-going, a celebration of independent cinemas, and a lament for the dwindling role of the projectionist.

Side by Side, a documentary hosted and co-produced by Keanu Reeves which questions the future of digital film opens at the IFI on February 15th.
