About this objectCollected from Husvik and held by Edwin Mickleburgh, leader of the South Georgia North Coast expedition 1979/80.
‘Kinostyret’ – Cinema Board or perhaps a singular Cinema director. The Kinostyret of Husvik, Leith and Grytviken cinemas were in regular contact with each other.
The seasonal loan of films to Husvik seems to have been arranged through one H Sandberg of Sandefjord.
Emerging from the collection is the story of an incident in the 1950s where all the winter films for the station were lost on the ship Teie, arrangements were made with the other island cinemas to loan films to Husvik.
