CTA 50th Anniversary Day

Monday 30 January 2017

Packed houses of members came together to celebrate fifty years of the Cinema Theatre Association on the anniversary of the inaugural meeting that was held at the National Film Theatre (now BFI Southbank) in 1967.

The afternoon showing of Sabotage (Hitchcock 1939) at BFI was sold out. In the evening, at the Regent Street Cinema, there was a double bill of Lumiere shorts (accompanied on the organ by Donald Mackenzie), extracts from some memorable short films about our cinema heritage. and the London première of The Final Reel (2016).

The celebrations were completed with toasts and a special cake.
