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 7 days a week.  

We have has to temporarily close to the public again due to the national lockdown and government guidance on museums. We will reopen on 2nd December.

Christmas and New Year Closure this year will be from Tuesday 22nd December until we reopen on Monday 4th January 2021.

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