This book marks the arrival of projected film in commercial spaces in Britain in 1896, and is the first publication to be devoted to the pioneer film-makers George Albert Smith and James Williamson. They both lived and worked in Hove and the Brighton area, it was here that they built their film studios and made some of the most important films in the early history of cinema.
