Film fans will be fascinated by this previously untold story of moving picture history. Centring on The Electric in Birmingham, the oldest working cinema in Britain, The Last Projectionist features interviews with staff, customers and industry experts as they recount the evolution of film projection. From 1909, when it took five years to train a projectionist, to a hundred years later, where it takes just an hour, film projection could be seen as a dying art. Thomas Lawes' documentary will leave you with a new-found appreciation of the art of film.
