The Cinema Museum - Kennington Bioscope online - The Centenary of William Friese-Greene


Kennington Bioscope online - The Centenary of William Friese-Greene, Wednesday May 5th @ 19:30

The Kennington Bioscope, in conjunction with The Cinema Museum, presents another episode of KBTV, available on YouTube, at the KBTV channel. William Friese-Greene (1855-1921) was a pioneering British experimenter with moving pictures, whose monument in Highgate Cemetery hails him as “The Inventor of Kinematography”, and whose life – and death – were famously charted in the 1951 film The Magic Box, starring Robert Donat.

While our home venue, the Cinema Museum in London, is closed, like other cinema and event venues, to keep people safe during the Covid-19 outbreak, we’ve relocated online. Help support our activities through our Ko-Fi account, if you can.
