Siriami has sent the above film listing from Edinburgh cinemas in October,1948 – Approximately the same time period as the previous post on Winnipeg cinemas.
So interesting to compare. The cinemas referred to as ‘Picture Houses.’
Winnipeg and Edinburgh, markedly, did not show the same films at that same time period in 1948. The only ones I could find on both listings was “The Mating of Millie”, “Love Laughs At Andy Hardy” and “The Wistful Widow”.
Almost half the films are re-releases, several from a decade earlier, including Lost Horizon, Manpower, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Captain Fury, Boom Town, There Goes My Heart, Sergeant York and Marked Woman (misspelt as Married Woman).
There were more Hollywood titles than British by almost 4 to 1. The Two Mrs. Carrolls, Kiss of Death, To The Ends of the Earth, The Naked City.
British releases included Hamlet, Brief Encounter, Corridor of Mirrors, Blanche Fury, Spring in Park Lane, We Dive at Dawn, A Matter of Life and Death, This Happy Breed – some re-releases.
Plenty to choose from!
British classifications were ‘U’ for Universal and ‘A’ for Adult.
Would love to hear from any other country at that time in 1948.
Not to be missed – Tribal War! Tidal Wave! Earthquake!
