Brought to you by Cambridge Film Trust, the Screen-on-Sea pop up ‘cinema’ will tour resorts from King’s Lynn to Felixstowe celebrating our rich moving image heritage of the coast and sea appearing at 10 resorts as part of summer festivals, concerts, carnivals and Heritage Days on the quay, the prom, the clifftop, the bandstand and the beach!
With a wonderful selection of footage taken by amateurs and professionals alike, sourced mostly from the UEA’s East Anglian Film Archive, you will be transported from the ‘20s through the decades of the last century to witness the fun and frolics of seaside holidays, the harvesting by local fisherman and the enduring beauty of our coastline caught on camera over the years. The focus will be on archive local to each resort and surrounding area providing a fascinating insight into how the coast and our holiday hot spots have changed (or not!) throughout our lifetime.
On the Bandstand by Beach Terrace Road
Come and see local news footage of 81 year old Mr Grange who looked after the donkeys rides on the beach in the 60s – one of his donkeys has a special talent for predicting the weather! Footage will also include seaside holidays in the 30s and 40s including the amphibious boat and a special seaside picnic for youngsters from Gayton.
