The Cinema Museum is a charitable organisation founded in 1986. The content of The Cinema Museum ranges from items relating to film production to film exhibition and the experience of cinema going. It represents cinema's rich history from the earliest days to the present. Regardless of the considerable constraints (space and limited financial resources), there has been a continuous stream of activities.

Until now, due to a lack of suitable space and sufficient funding, our huge collection has been open to the public by appointment only. The financial support to house and maintain this collection is provided solely by the Ronald Grant Archive, a film-related photo library used internationally and widely known for its extensive historical range.
