This paper presents a practice research project based at The Curzon Community Cinema, Clevedon, UK. Working closely with the cinema to develop a locative or context-aware heritage application for the iPhone, the project aims to enhance the Curzon’s new Heritage Lottery Funded exhibition, enabling visitors to gain further insight into the building, projection equipment and the history of cinema itself. The paper discusses the iterative design process, evaluates the first iteration and outlines plans for the next iteration, when the project will attempt to move seamlessly from the exterior of the building to inside the cinema.
