Previously due to be shown February 18th, this special showing of Film at the Folk Hall is back for Pride! BAFTA winning biopic of LGBT icon Quentin Crisp – Brought to the beautiful Folk Hall and projected in all it’s glory onto our 16 foot screen.
“It’s been agony but I couldn’t have done it any other way” – Quentin Crisp”
This biopic is based on the published memoirs of Quentin Crisp, a fearless crusader for gay visibility since the 1920’s. In a time when very few men were outwardly open about their sexuality, she suffered prejudice and abuse at the hands of most of society. Controversial and independent throughout her life her and her work continues to have huge influence today.
We’re so excited to be bringing another special screening to you with funding from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to celebrate LGBTQ History month. (We still charge a nominal ticket fee to discourage those who reserve free tickets and fail to turn up, all proceeds are donated to charity!) Enjoy this piece of film history among friends in our relaxed and beautiful hall, created by Joseph Rowntree to bring communities together under one roof.
As well as music and a licensed bar, we have table seating and an interval so you can make your cinema trip a social one.
