Norfolk at the Pictures is a Heritage Lottery Funded project collecting and preserving memories of film and cinema-going in Norfolk.
The Norfolk at the Pictures project, coordinated by Cinema City Education, has already delivered an extensive and highly successful range of events and activities across the county as part of the Norfolk at the Pictures project. Over the last year thousands of people across Norfolk have taken part in events and contributed their own memories, documents and stories. Cinema heritage trail booklets have been produced for Norwich and Great Yarmouth and a commemorative Norfolk at the Pictures magazine, in collaboration with Archant, is currently on sale.
A website – norfolkatthepictures.org.uk – provides a permanent archive and a specially produced feature length documentary film ‘The Final Reel’ is set to be released in September 2016.
In December 2015 the project was given the go-ahead from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to begin work on their new facility The John Hurt Centre. The centre opened in September 2016 and houses a new accessible education and exhibition space with state of the art facilities and equipment. Located on the first floor at Cinema City, it is reached by stairs or lift from the central courtyard, and has accessible toilets and level flooring throughout.
