‘Moving North Coastal – Lancashire by the Sea’
St John’s Church Blackpool, Wednesday 19 July 2017 at 2pm and 7.30pm
The films selected for ‘Moving North Coastal – Lancashire by the Sea’ feature coastal life in and around the Lancashire over the past 100 years.
This specially selected compilation of fascinating archival films includes footage of Blackpool Seafront in the pioneering days of filmmaking in 1898 and of the holidaymakers and dance bands on the piers in the film Blackpool Promenade from 1924.
Catch the crowds on the seafront as they look on while the Tower Circus Elephants take a dip in the sea in 1930 and join with the day-trippers from W & J Whitehead on their Centenary Celebrations trip to Blackpool.
Head into the sea with the Hindley Family, with their delightful home movie of their visit in 1936.
Visit Fleetwood in Coronation Year and look on as the town is represented in the naval review in Trawlers at Spithead.
With the classic film Holiday from 1957 we see the Lancashire resorts in their heyday and see the beginnings of new social changes in the CND marches of Ban the Bomb from 1964 all in this new compilation of films from the archives.
Tickets are £2 for the matinee, or at £5 for the evening screening, available on the day or from http://buyonline.mmu.ac.uk/product-catalogue/north-west-film-archive/events/moving-north-coastal-lancashire-by-the-sea
