Presentation given at the International Screen Conference, Glasgow 2014 on how mobile heritage apps can bring the landscape of cinemagoing to life - using the example of the Lost Cinemas of Castle Park app which features over 100 years of cinemagoing in Bristol City Centre from 1896 to the present day. The presentation argues that mobile location-based technology can raise awareness of the practice of moviegoing through different technological eras of cinema, as well as inform us about the recent history, culture and society. The presentation situates this micro history within the wider landscape of developments in new cinema history, audience research and cultural geography.
The video embedded in the powerpoint is the demo video used for publication on app store to demonstrate the location-based dimension of the app: https://vimeo.com/53189913
