If the burgeoning prices of cinema tickets is putting you off recently, and you’re in my vacinity (that’d be North-West England), then there are a couple of great examples of independent screenings of some old classics.
Nicolas Roeg’s beautiful but slightly bizarre 1975 sci-fi classic The Man who fell to Earth receives a screening in Manchester’s Northern Quarter next Friday, at the Methodist Hall, and tickets are (gasp) only three pounds! Particularly unmissable for any Bowie-philes such as myself.
Also, in Bolton, of all places, my old friends Francesca Platt and Tracy Hindley have set up the local Box-Office events; roughly monthly screenings of requested films. Bonnie and Clyde was their first screening two weeks ago, with the next film due to be shown next month (April 15th). Their details can be found on Facebook.
