Screens & Stages in the Silver City

The Screens and Stages in the Silver City conference, organised by Aberdeen City Libraries and Aberdeen City Heritage Trust, will take place on Saturday 13 February 2021. 

A wide range of speakers will help us explore our architectural and building heritage, with a focus on Aberdeen’s cinemas and theatres. Presenting on the day will be: 

·       Dr Alistair Fair, Reader in Architectural History at Edinburgh University, will look at Aberdeen’s post-1900 theatre architecture. 

·       Ronald Grant, from the Cinema Museum in London, will share his memories of Aberdeen’s cinemas and illustrate his presentation with many original photographs from his collection. 

·       Dr Paul Maloney, Research Fellow at Queen’s University Belfast, will show how imaginative use of archival sources and material culture can produce a colourful and accessible theatre history which relates entertainment to wider developments. 

·       Janet McBain, former curator of the Scottish Screen Archive, will consider the representation of the city and its citizens in films. 

·       Dr Lyn Wilson, Digital documentation manager, Historic Environment Scotland, will outline the use of digital innovations at HES and give examples of focused applications.
