Screening once a month at The Palace Picturehouse in Armley Mills Industrial Museum, Mincine at The Mills is our flagship strand and employs a three-month season structure, which showcases the best in overlooked and underrated independent film and World Cinema. Each film night includes a feature, a selection of complimentary short films and an offering of free hot drinks and homemade treats.
In partnership with Gallery at Munro House, we presented a 6-month programme of films throughout 2015, curated to compliment the artwork exhibited within the gallery space. With refreshments available from the neighbouring Café 164, this strand presented an experience for audiences to consider all four walls of a screening room, not just one, resulting in a more immersive environment.
A six-month programme of films screened at the now defunct Dock Street Market in Leeds throughout 2012. We began with a screening of the childhood classic To Kill A Mockingbird and followed with titles that look at key stages or ages in life; Sixteen Candles (teenage years), The Graduate (early twenties), a double feature of American Beauty and The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee (mid-life crisis), Alexander Payne’s About Schmidt (retirement) and finally Disney Pixar’s Up (old age). With free admission, films were screened from withing the Dock Street bakery itself and were accompanied by shorts, popcorn and ice-cream.
