Dark Skies: Bright Stars
Mayes Creative are planning an exciting new project series, inspired by the Bodmin Moor Dark Skies bid. Our first phase involves looking at the heritage of astronomy in Cornwall, working with Brian Sheen of the Roseland Observatory, Launceston Museum, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and schools, community groups and local libraries in the area. ...more news here as we have it!
Cinestar at the Cornwall Film Festival
Film and Light in Redruth: Cinestar's new home at Back Lane West, Redruth connects us to the history of cinema in Cornwall; the former Druid's Hall showed early panorama’s and cinematic curiosities, later becoming Redruth’s first cinema in 1910. Next door at Murdoch House, William Murdoch experimented with coal-fired gaslight and innovations which led to the aniline dyes still used for tinting analogue film today. Our opening screenings and young peoples heritage projects are inspired by our new location, early cinema, the history of film and light-making technologies. Showings/screenings all on this weekend 13-14 Nov.
