Go: Art: Brush Strokes


THE Indian cinema scene in Coventry is being remembered in an exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.

It started in Britain in the 1940s and became established in the 1970s when Asian people bought and restored failing cinemas. The two main Indian picture houses in Coventry are now closed - the Ritz in Longford Road and the Palladium in Hillfields.

Audiences are invited to take a cinema seat to see photographs and hear stories and film songs from this significant time in the making of post- war Britain. The show is called Kabhi Ritz Kabhi Palladium, Coventry's Asian Cinema Scene 1940s to 1980s.

The exhibition runs until June 13 and is open from 10am-5.30pm, Mondays to Saturdays, and from noon-5pm on Sundays.

YOUNGSTERS are invited to take part in a hunt for Scrabble pieces at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum during half-term next week. Children can win a small prize in the free event which starts tomorrow and runs until Sunday, February 22.

They can also meet Roman soldier Alex Davidson, who is back with a demonstration about the Roman army from 2pm to 4pm on Wednesday.

On Tuesday children, aged eight to 12 can take part in a two-hour session with textile artist Michaela McMillan exploring the idea of home, using art gallery exhibitions as inspiration. Places cost pounds 5.50 per child and can be booked in the Art Gallery on 01788 533201.

For more information phone 01788 533201.
