We've been busy during lockdown...illuminating a dark gap in the initial history of the Club.


We managed to track down John McWilliams, one of the original three founders of the club back in 1968.


He agreed to reminisce with us in the current Electric, plugging our gap in The True Story of the Electric Cinema Club.


Along with contributions from Peter Howden [the legendary programmer], John Mister [member no. 4] and other former staff, Georges has now edited it together with his usual flair.


A prequel, you might say. Just a click away real soon!
