Each day’s entertainment is a celebration of film and TV history, with lots of short films, newsreels, Saturday Morning Pictures, lost TV episodes and films on the big screen (some projected live from 35mm!). With celebrity guests and hosts, quizzes, a variety of stalls and merchandise with show exclusives.
