‘The Forgotten Showman: How Robert Paul Invented British Cinema’

Discover how Robert Paul, the forgotten pioneer of cinematography, invented British cinema.

The year is 1894—a time of competition and innovation. Young engineer Robert Paul is sitting in his workshop when two businessmen arrive with the proposition of a lifetime.

Discover the beginnings of a new industry, enter the magic of the music hall and witness the race for the next big thing in entertainment: cinema. In the heart of Bradford, the world’s first UNESCO City of Film, we are proud to reveal this forgotten hero of cinema, 150 years after his birth.
