Highbury Studios

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Highbury Studios were a British film studio located in Highbury, North London which operated from 1937 until 1956. The studios were constructed by the producer Maurice J. Wilson. During its early years the studio was hired out to independent production companies.

Credits

Highbury Productions

Following the Second World War, Highbury was acquired by the Rank Organisation which used it to make low-budget second features featuring the company's rising actors.[2] The studio was run by the producer John Croydon, who had previously worked at Ealing. Its aim was to make 50 minute "curtain raisers" for Rank's features. John Croydon was head of production.[3] It frequently used members of Rank's Company of Youth.[4][5]

In December 1948 the studio operation was shut down as part of a series of cuts made throughout the Rank Organisation, which had suffered heavy financial losses.[6][7]

Later use

Occasional films were still made there by other companies, and it became increasingly used as a television studio.[8] It made a number of commercials.[9]
