In what will be a few months of partnership events (more info on the others coming soon), there will actually be no Minicine event at our beautiful little Armley Mills venue in February *cue boos, moans and other such disappointed noises*. But don’t worry, there is a very good reason for this. Leeds Film are hosting a special “Leeds Film Favourites” event at Leeds Town Hall, collecting four fan-favourite films that have possibly completely passed you by, or perhaps you may have never seen them on the big screen, or even you simply cannot get enough of their mastery of the cinematic art (I’m looking at you Powell and Pressburger). These films are:
Thursday 23rd February:
5.45PM – North by Northwest (Alfred Hitchock, 1959)
8.30PM – The Red Shoes (Michael Powell Emeric Pressburger, 1948)
Friday 24th February:
6PM – Don’t Look Now (Nicolas Roeg, 1973)
8.30PM – The Big Lebowski (Joel and Ethan Coen, 1998)
One of the evenings falls on our usual screening night, so obviously you all have it in your diaries to go watch a film anyway… right? So rather than causing you cinephiles of West Yorkshire the unpleasurable task of choosing between two exciting film events, we thought that we would go, and take our audience with us.
Tickets for all films are £6.50, but our members – seeing as you won’t be benefiting from your member discount at our screening that evening – will be able to buy tickets at the concession rate of £5.00. If you are going to benefit from this discounted rate, please call through to the box office (on 0113 224 3801) or buy tickets on the day, rather than going through the website. Any questions, just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be arranging a time and a place near to the screenings, to meet our audience before, grab a drink and then make our way over there. You don’t have to be a member, just e-mail email@example.com if you are interested in getting involved. We will also be setting up a Facebook event (but we’ll do this closer to the time).
Tickets are available right now through www.leedsfilm.com and the City Centre Box Office on 0113 224 3801.
