WELCOME TO OUR EVOCATION OF THE

MUSEUM OF THE MOVING IMAGE
WHERE FILM CAME TO LIFE

originally created by Leslie Hardcastle and David Francis

The Museum of the Moving Image opened in London in 1988.
It was a huge critical and popular success,
and was closed in August 1999.
This unofficial website revives the spirit
of just one section of the museum, the Undercroft, featuring
The Precursors of Cinema
and
Early Film.

Text compilation and design by Stephen Herbert.
With grateful acknowledgement to the original text concepts of
David Francis, David Robinson, and Brian Coe
