Stuart Keen Obituary

Mike Leggett

Stuart was from an earlier generation of film activists and provided an invaluable service in the West Country where the only films to be seen were those selected by the two commercial chains. Stuart would select and introduce programs from the repertoire of classic and art cinema, from Europe, Hollywood and around the world, and then screen them using 1940 vintage projectors - the experience of cinema was unique to audiences in the 1970s and educated many generations of students passing through Exeter.
