Welcome to The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum

The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum is home to one of the largest collections of material relating to the moving image in Britain. We are both an accredited public museum and an academic research facility and we hold a collection of over 85,000 items. Over 1,000 of our items are on display in our Galleries and are available to be viewed by the public.  

Due to the lockdown in the UK caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are unfortunately unable to reopen our galleries as planned in the new year and are closed until further notice. Please watch this space for further information and we apologise for any inconvenience. We are still able to answer enquiries.

Leading film critic Mark Kermode visited the museum in Summer 2017 and made this film about us for his 'KermodeUncut' video blog.
