Projected Picture Trust

The Projected Picture Trust logo

The wanton destruction of projectors and related professional film equipment prompted in 1978, a few like minded preservationists to form The Projected Picture Trust (PPT). The aims were to not only locate the equipment being destroyed, but to renovate, preserve and exhibit it for the enjoyment of the public. In other words, they wanted to preserve the magic of cinema.

The PPT, has a base at Dean Clough Mills, Halifax where the majority of the equipment is stored with displays across the country.
