About

Holyrood or Bust is a classic film blog run by Edinburgh-based freelance journalist, Jonathan Melville.

Writing regularly about film for various outlets, my love of cinema has found me attending film festivals around the globe to watch the very best films, with a trip to the second TCM Classic Film Festival in 2011 making me realise that I needed a dedicated blog on the subject.

Covering all aspects of classic films (the definition of a “classic” almost certainly varying from week to week but focusing mainly on Hollywood’s Golden Age and as many old movies as I can lay my hands on), Holyrood or Bust will cover screenings of films at cinemas around the world, DVD, book and event reviews plus the ocassional interview.

As for the blog’s title, Holyrood is a part of Scotland’s capital city which has little relevance to cinema apart from the fact that it sounds a bit like Hollywood.
