Revealed – the former headquarters of the Preston Film Service!

Will Onda set up the Preston Film Service to import and distribute silent films to cinemas. The business was based in a building on Corporation Street in Preston which still stands today. It is located opposite the University of Central Lancashire’s Harris Building. Below is a link to it on Street View. Hard to imagine that this was once a hub of northern cinema! To see an image of it on a letterhead on flickr click here .
