Over the last few months, a number of students have been investigating further parts of our local cinema history as part of the Department of Film Studies’ module, ‘Film and the Archive’. You can read some of the latest findings online. Thee include¬†the unlikely story of two students producing elaborate film magazines during the war, a film star visiting St Andrews to promote her latest ‘Scottish’ production in 1946, the arrival of CinemaScope in the local cinemas in the 1950s and the recent recreation of St Andrews in a LA studio for William and Kate: The Movie. As always, the articles allow us to glimpse at St Andrews’ rich cultural history, to see the importance of cinema to the town and, what’s more, to learn more about cinema more broadly through these specific local examples.
