The cinema and cinema-going in Scotland, 1896-1950 by Trevor Griffiths( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph will be the first to document the habits and growth of cinema attendance in Scotland during the early twentieth-century, while integrating the study of cinema into the wider debates of social and economic history. Feeding off questions like: What did Scots of this period go to see at the cinema? What was available and why? What was the experience like?, Trevor Griffiths draws extensively on archival resources concerning the cinema as a business, on documentation kept by cinema managers, and on the diaries and recollections of attendees to create a comprehensive text on the patterns of cinema-going and attendance levels, as well as changes in audience preferences for different genres, stars or national origins of films
The Lancashire working classes : c.1880-1930 by Trevor Griffiths( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the experiences and values which shaped working-class life in Britain in the half-century from 1880. It takes as its focus a region, Lancashire, which was central to the social and political changes of the period. The discussion centres on two towns, Bolton and Wigan, which, while they were geographically close, differed significantly in their industrial fortunes and their electoral development. The formation of class identity is traced through developments in the world of work, from the impact of technological and managerial innovations to the elaboration of collective-bargaining procedures. Beyond work, particular attention is paid to the dynamics of neighbourhood and family life, the latter emerging as an important source of continuity in working-class life. The broader impact of such influences are traced through a close examination of the electoral politics of the period."--Jacket

Early cinema in Scotland( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the history of early cinema in Scotland from its inception in 1896 until the 1930s. The popularity of cinema and cinema-going in Scotland was exceptional. By 1929 Glasgow had 127 cinemas, and by 1939 it claimed more cinema seats per capita than any other city in the world. Focusing on the social experience of cinema and cinema-going, this collection of essays provides a detailed context for the history of early cinema in Scotland, from its inception in 1896 until the arrival of sound in the early 1930s. Tracing the movement from travelling fairground shows to the establishment of permanent cinemas in major cities and small towns across the country, the book examines the attempts to establish a sustainable feature film production sector and the significance of an imaginary version of Scotland in international cinema.With case studies of key productions like 'Rob Roy' (1911), early cinema in small towns like Bo'ness, Lerwick and Oban, as well as of the employment patterns in Scottish cinemas, the collection also includes the most complete account of Scottish-themed films produced in Scotland, England, Europe and the USA from 1896 to 1927. Key Features: Explores cinema-going in cities and towns across Scotland, large and small; Engages with international debates on the social history of cinema; Includes a filmography of Scottish-themed films produced in Scotland, England, Europe and the USA from 1896 to 1927

A history of everyday life in twentieth-century Scotland by Lynn Abrams( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the twentieth century Scots' lives changed in fast, dramatic and culturally significant ways. By examining their bodies, homes, working lives, rituals, beliefs and consumption, this volume exposes how the very substance of everyday life was composed, tracing both the intimate and the mass changes that the people endured. Using novel perspectives and methods, chapters range across the experiences of work, art and death, the way Scots conceived of themselves and their homes, and the way the 'old Scotland' of oppressive community rules broke down from mid-century as the country reinvented its everyday life and culture. This volume brings together leading cultural historians of twentieth-century Scotland to study the apparently mundane activities of people's lives, traversing the key spaces where daily experience is composed to expose the controversial personal and national politics that ritual and practice can generate. Key features: *Contains an overview of the material changes experienced by Scots in their everyday lives during the course of the century *Focuses on some of the key areas of change in everyday experience, from the way Scots spent their Sundays to the homes in which they lived, from the work they undertook to the culture they consumed and eventually the way they died. *Pays particular attention to identity as well as experience
