The Last Projectionist Reviews

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

A nostalgic advertorial for the recently refurbished (and very admirable) Electric Cinema in Birmingham, disingenuously billed as a documentary about British independent cinema.

Little White Lies

A missed opportunity. If you're going to make a film about your own cinema, at least give us a reason why we should care.

A celebration of cinematic magic, The Last Projectionist is an insightful cultural applause documenting the eclectic journey of Birmingham's Electric, Britain's oldest surviving cinema.

Birmingham Mail

It's a well-made, fascinating documentary which will delight social historians, thrill cinephiles and enlighten younger generations who probably take the general quality of film-making today for granted.

Birmingham Post

The multi-talented Tom Lawes, owner of The Electric, does an extraordinary job directing, producing and editing the film, as well as writing the excellent score and recording it with his Electric Cinema Film Orchestra.

This film occasionally looks like a sentimental in-house video, but it's an entertaining trip down cinema's memory lane.
