Hello and welcome to the online home of The Projected Picture Trust. The objectives of the Trust are encapsulated in the statement:-
“To locate, preserve, renovate and exhibit the equipment and data, past and present, of still and moving images”
Press Release for Immediate Release
A hundred years of Cinema Heritage is in danger of being lost if the Projected Picture Trust (PPT) are unable to find new storage by the end of 2013. The PPT urgently needs to find 3000sq ft of storage space. Since 1994 Bletchley Park has been the headquarters, consisting of exhibition, workshop and storage space and also runs a fifty seat Art Deco cinema. The Bletchley Park Trust have requested the PPT vacate the location they currently use for storage at the park by the end of 2013, due to the preservation project Bletchley Park is currently undergoing. The PPT is looking for around 3000sq ft of storage space for its new premises in the local Milton Keynes area.
The Projected Picture Trust was established in 1978 to locate, preserve, restore and educate the public in the magic of cinema and has one of the largest and most unique collections of Cinema Technology equipment in the world, and certainly has one of the largest collections which is on display to the public.
The Projected Picture Trust is a small Trust and is therefore looking for funding and partnership opportunities in the Bedfordshire / Buckinghamshire area. If any company or organisation has any space which would be available then the Trust would be delighted to hear from them.
The Trust is also interested in further space, to create a Centre of Excellence and education relating to Cinema Technology and Preserving the Magic of Cinema.
