Can anyone in the UK tell me if the Buckingham Movie Museum is still in operation? I have an old brochure advertising this place as being 'The Home of the John Burgoyne-Johnson collection'.

If you talking about Buckingham films, then yes, I believe that it is still in operation but sadly, I have lost thier e-mail address. My apologies.

I believe they're linked from bfcc.biz. Check the super 8 links page.

Hi folks.
The Buckingham Movie Museum closed many years ago. But some internal shots can be seen on our DVD "Movie Club Magazine" which is available from Derann Films should it be of interest.

I have the 17.5mm Pathe projector which was used in the museum and also shown on the DVD.

Hi Everyone,

Just to repeat what Lee said, The Buckingham movie museum closed years ago but Buckingham Films which was situated opposite (down a narrow road) is still going strong just. This is run by Tony Reypart.

Sadly, in a few weeks time Tony will be closing his doors to the shop for the last time.

Tony will still be trading via mail order only. Now is a good time to email him and get yourself on his film email list.


I dream of becoming a dealer!!!!!!
