Five people in a movie theaterProject members exploring Bio Roxy at a conference in Örebro 2017.
The objective of this project is to secure funding for pan-European research on the historical experience of cinema going. This research is interdisciplinary and considers tangible assets such as cinemas, intangible assets such as oral history, and archives of programming data, maps, photos, post cards, text and audio-visual material. An international team of scholars interested in the pan-European interdisciplinary study of film culture, film economics and human geography will benefit from the project activities. The over-arching purpose of the research is to build a sense of shared identity across Europe alongside deeper understanding of and respect for cultural idiosyncrasies, by collecting, comparing and sharing data and narratives related to the historical experience of cinema going.
