Birth of the Film Studio - in Muswell Hill
A talk by Ian Christie, a film historian whose book Robert Paul and the Origins of British Cinema was published by Chicago University Press in 2019. When Robert and Ellen Paul moved from central London to Sydney Road in 1898, they were setting a trend that would be followed around the world. Film studios were essentially a suburban development, soon to be found on the outskirts of cities around the world. But how much do we know about the Animatograph Works on Sydney Road and its ten-year history?
