Titanic fundraising

Did you know that movie theatres were key venues for fundraising in aid of the Titanic tragedy? On 9 May 1912, The Bioscope reported that just over 205 pounds and 12 shillings were gathered in local theatres across England. In today's money, this amounts to approximately £11,732.
