Screen Arts Festival

29 July - 11 August

This summer, Picturehouse Cinemas will be proud host to a brand new cross-arts initiative, THE SCREEN ARTS FESTIVAL. Showcasing a range of arts content from diverse sources – dance, opera and theatre – the festival will also include a number of films and documentaries programmed into themed strands.

Highlights will include a screening of Atlantic Productions’ breathtaking CGI documentary FLYING MONSTERS, complete with a live satellite Q&A with Sir David Attenborough; a restored film of the classic 1966 production of Tchaikovsky’s SWAN LAKE, featuring the legendary partnership of Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn; and a live transmission of Verdi’s opera NABUCCO from the stunning Teatro Antico Taormina in Sicily.

We also bring you three acclaimed productions from last year’s season at the Globe Theatre, including Roger Allam’s Olivier Award-winning turn as Falstaff in HENRY IV Parts 1 & 2. Plus we have Lech Majewski’s stunning film about Renaissance painter Peter Breugel, THE MILL AND THE CROSS; René Féret’s fascinating biopic MOZART’S SISTER; and three rare documentary screenings - MRS CAREY’S CONCERT, DANCING ACROSS BORDERS, and the Cannes crowd-pleaser CORMAN’S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL.

This new festival will be a fantastic opportunity to link a diverse, lively programme across the arts and really celebrate the film and non-film programming that is at the heart of Picturehouse Cinemas.
