Featuring the people, places, major events, and everyday life in the historic rural market town of Beverley over the past 100 years.
Graham Relton, Yorkshire Film Archive Manager said:
“For a town of its size the filmmaking heritage of Beverley that has survived and is now preserved is incredible.”
“Thanks to East Riding Archives & Local Studies Service film collection and recently digitised content via the BFI Britain on Film project we have an amazing array of footage to share at the Beverley on Film screening at the Parkway Cinema.”
From market day to race day, rare footage of local industries such as leather production at the tannery which stood on the site where Parkway Cinema is now situated.
The footage will be presented by Yorkshire Film Archive, who will take the audience on a journey through Beverley’s rich history as seen through the lenses of both amateur and professional filmmakers, including Ernest Symmons – known as one of Yorkshire’s early film pioneers, screening many of his productions at his Picture Playhouse in Saturday Market, Beverley.
Beverley on Film is one of the first events of ‘Moving North: Rural’, a touring programme of archive screenings and events in communities across Yorkshire, the North East and Cumbria, delivered by Yorkshire Film Archive in partnership with Film Hub North & Cine North as part of the BFI’s UK-wide Britain on Film project.
Screenings will take place at Parkway Cinema on Thursday 21 July at 1PM and 7PM.
