Bill Douglas Cinema Museum

The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum opened in 1997 as part of the British celebrations of the centenary of cinema. The Centre's remit is to encourage the ongoing enjoyment, understanding and study of film. The Centre provides a research collection of international stature, illustrating the development of optical recreation and popular entertainment from the late 18th century to Classical Hollywood and the present day.

Complementing the University's existing extensive resources for the study of popular culture, the Collection's 18,000 books give Exeter the country's largest University library on cinema. They are a permanent, uniquely valuable resource for postgraduate students and researchers, and also contribute to the remarkably varied undergraduate degree programmes at Exeter.
