Bradford Community Cinema
A brand new community cinema initiative is set to transform venues in Keighley, Ben Ryhdding and Bradford into pop up cinemas, as Cine Yorkshire and Bradford UNESCO City of Film announce an exciting new partnership for 2013. Bradford Community Cinema launches at Bradford Cathedral on Friday 25th January at 7pm, with a special screening of This Sporting Life (Lindsay Anderson, 1963, cert 15), followed by a Q&A session with Rugby League legend Brian Noble. The Oscar nominated & BAFTA award winning film, which observes a successful young rugby player as he struggles with his personal demons, shot at locations across the region, including Leeds, Wakefield and Bolton Abbey. The screening is part of Bradford Cathedral’s Artspace programme, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the completion of the east end.
Other venues participating in the new Bradford Community Cinema initiative include; The Wheatley Arms in Ben Rhydding, where there will be a series of ‘film & supper’ evenings, Culture Fusion at the YMCA in Bradford, who will be screening a programme of films to entertain their young audiences and Keighley Central Hall, home to the newly established Keighley Film Club.
