The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television opened in 1983 with an intention to explore the art and science of the image. Britain’s first ever IMAX cinema opens at the museum on the same day, becoming the country’s biggest cinema screen. In 2007, the museum changed its name to the National Media Museum, reflecting a broadening remit that included new media such as videogames and the internet. In 2017 it rebranded once again, this time as the National Science and Media Museum, and changed its focus from the art and science of the image to ‘the science of light and sound technologies’.
