The Blevins Franks Lecture

The moving image has been a powerful source for imagination from the first moment a magic lantern flickered into life in the 17th Century. Geri Parlby has worked as a Fleet Street journalist and film publicist for MGM, Paramount, and Universal Pictures and in this lecture we will be looking at how the Motion Picture industry first developed throughout the late 19th and 20th century, and how it went on to change the face of entertainment and inspire the imaginations of some of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Lecturer: Geri Parlby

MEMBERS: Free; NON-MEMBERS: 10€ per lecture, to be paid at the visitors’ desk prior to the lecture.
