As historical venues across the region get ready to show the public behind the scenes for Heritage Open Day, we take a tour of Wolverhampton's Light House, the city's only independent cinema.
The former Chubb factory, which is now used as a cinema and live entertainment venue, opened in March 1987 as a joint project of the Council’s Leisure Services and Wolverhampton Polytechnic.
Today, the Light House inhabits larger, partly-purpose-built accommodation, is an independent company and employs 7 full time staff and a small team of part time staff and volunteers.
Video journalist Nicky Butler went backstage to see the daily running of the cinema, which is one of the picture houses in the country to still use 35mm film, and spoke to staff about their pride in being a leading light in Wolverhampton's art scene.
On Thursday we speak to the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Cllr Milkinder Jaspal, at his parlour and on Friday we will take a look at The Grand Theatre, which has hosted many big names since it was built in 1894 by Architect Charles J. Phipps.
