With Annette Kuhn FBA 

In the 1990s, hundreds of men and women from all over Britain told researchers about their past cinemagoing lives in interviews, questionnaires, letters, and essays as part of a research project called ‘Cinema Culture in 1930s Britain’. Because of its rapid population growth and cinema provision during these years, the London suburb of Harrow was chosen as a location for fieldwork, and eighteen people living in the area took part in depth interviews, offering up vivid, entertaining, and sometimes intriguing memories of their younger lives and leisure pursuits.
