Picture Palaces –  Light Night Friday 15th May at the Everyman Theatre – Hope Street
We are excited to be showing a small section of our new film, ‘Reel Heroes at Sea,’ starring Alfred Mahon, who was the projectionist on the RMS Mauretania and narrated by film director, Alex Cox.
Alf remembers the night, when the Mauretania was caught in a mid Atlantic hurricane. Alf’s story is retold with historical archive footage of the Mauretania ship and passengers sailing out of Liverpool.


During our Picture Palace and Reel Heroes events, together we have shared some wonderful memories and experiences.

This page is dedicated to capturing and sharing some of those moments again with our online friends.
