Sheffield Cinemas

Recommended Posts

can anyone tell me please how long did Sheffield have to wait for a Hollywood film in 1939? What films were shown? I am writing a book (fiction) and I would love to know as much as possible about Sheffield cinemas in 1939. The whole experience please.  

Many thanks

I don't know, but a little research shows that the Carlton opened in August 1938 by screening "Kings Solomon's Mines" ( released in 1937)and in 1939 the Rex was showing "Men with Wings" ( released 1938), A search of the micro filmed Sheffield newspapers held in the Archives/Central Library would quickly show what was being screened in almost all of the Sheffield cinemas in 1939...then you would have to find when they were first released.

These are the sort of pages to look for in the Library “Star” archives. These examples are from 1957 but they go back to the 30’s. Have fun! post-5086-1235578016_thumb.jpg.bc813dfb5d09d79cb8bfac32494c1a7f.jpgpost-5086-1235577970_thumb.jpg.4538ecb8514bedb7b0ae1c153791d86f.jpg
