Lights, camera, action! Movie Matinees at Dudley Museums!

filmDim the lights – the movies are coming to Dudley – but not necessarily to a screen near you!

That’s because the town’s museums will be the ones showing the films, as part of a project to celebrate the region’s rich history of creativity and innovation.

Dudley Museum and Art Gallery, Broadfield House Glass Museum and Red House Glass Cone will all host Movies at the Museums matinee screenings over the coming months, in support of the Black Country Echoes Project.

The Echoes scheme is a joint initiative between the four Black Country local authorities, working with the voluntary, arts, community and business organisations.

The films will cover a diverse range of subjects, from a 1969 film made by ATV showing the changing industry and landscape of the Black Country to a film about Teddy Greys sweet factory.

Check out the project’s website for full details of the screening times.
