Forthcoming Screenings and Events
14th December 2018, Friday 2.00pm and 3.00pm
On 14th December 2018, the historic day that marks 100 years since some women were first allowed to vote, and moments after the new statue to Emmeline Pankhurst is unveiled yards away in St Peter's Square, we are thrilled to offer the first screenings in Manchester of 'Born A Rebel'.

Showing women’s lives from the suffragettes to the miners' strikes, and much more, 'Born a Rebel' is a 15-minute film comprised entirely of archive footage from the collections of the Yorkshire, North West and North East Film Archives. Commissioned by Cinema For All and supported by the Women's Vote Centenary Grant Scheme, this new production celebrates women in protest across the North of England since the start of women’s suffrage 100 years ago.

Tickets are FREE for both of the screenings, but please reserve a seat by booking via this Eventbrite link.

15th January 2019, Tuesday 6.00pm
Reflecting on the 70th anniversary of the closure of Manchester’s original tramway network in January 1949, the North West Film Archive opens up its collection of footage of tramways from around the region from the 1890s to the 1950s. Curated and presented by a member of the archive's staff this show will be a must for all transport lovers.

Tickets are FREE, but please reserve a seat by booking via this Eventbrite link.
