Lots 1 to 218 are from the collection of Keith Nunn a greatly missed cinema fan and projectionist below are a few lines from his colleague and friend.
"Keith Nunn was first and foremost a loyal lifelong friend to many people, and would do anything for anyone. He started his career in 1954 at the Ritz cinema in Hereford, then - through a small favour to two sisters, became the projectionist and his own boss at a small Forest of Dean cinema for many years, before moving to the ABC Regal in Kings Square, and then on to the MGM in Gloucester where he remained until his retirement. I first met Keith back in the mid 1980's when he was still the chief projectionist at the ABC Regal Gloucester. He kindly offered to show me backstage and gave me a tour of the projection rooms, and our friendship grew from there. Keith had a passion for cinema and film, he loved his work, and he loved collecting anything film related - especially projectors. He amassed many friends within the industry, and they would donate film equipment to him over the years. He attended many auctions and government sales looking for that elusive item and enjoyed getting his hands on industrial and professional kit. His collection grew continuously until his passing in 2020 - it was both Keith's lifelong hobby and obsession. He is greatly missed."
Baylies Hall Tower St Dudley has its own important cinema history as James Whale director of the 1931 horror film Frankenstein attended school here in Baylies Hall.
Enjoy the auction! We at SAS Dudley are delighted to offer this collection relating to cinema and film.
