Richard Nicholson: The Projectionists

Suitable for all ages.

Photographer Richard Nicholson has been travelling the country, gaining privileged access to a realm where most cinema-goers never venture; the projection box. As film has made way for digital, both the job and the work-place have changed fundamentally, and Richard’s beautifully detailed images capture this pivotal moment.

This exhibition is part of a wider research project at the University of Warwick, exploring the changing role of the projectionist over the past century. Some of the fruits of this work will be on show as part of the Celluloid City day, including Richard himself in conversation.

With thanks to University of Warwick / AHRC.

Gas Hall opening times: Wednesday – Friday 12:00 – 19:00, Saturday 10:30 – 21:00, Sunday 10:30 – 17:00
