The National Museum of Computing is pleased to be working with The Projected Picture Trust at Bletchley Park to bring you an opportunity to see some computing history using some cinema history.
The films will be shown using one of the original projectors at the Cinema (checkout the Enigma website for some excellent images) and visitors will be able to sit in those special cinema seats whilst watching some classic computers. This must be 'double geekery' because the Enigma Cinema hosts an incredible collection of cinema and home projectors that will be available to see as part of your visit.
The films will be shown in the afternoon of:Sunday October 16th andSunday October 30th.
The programme is expected to begin at 1.00pm through to approximately 4.00pm, but a full programme of the screenings will be published here soon.
The screenings will be free but those wishing to see the rest of Bletchley Park can access their ticketing facility on site and pay the approriate charge which will enable them to tour the park.
While computers are now an important part of the lives of human beings, there was a time where computers did not exist. Knowing the history of computers and how much progression has been made can help you understand just how complicated and innovative the creation of computers really is.
Unlike most devices, the computer is one of the few inventions that does not have one specific inventor. Throughout the development of the computer, many people have added their creations to the list required to make a computer work. Some of the inventions have been different types of computers, and some of them were parts required to allow computers to be developed further.
Where do computers come from? Turns out we’ve been building machines to help us count for centuries
