Fact brings Cinema in the City to Liverpool this summer


FACT is taking cinema out of its Wood Street building and spreading screenings across Liverpool city centre locations and beyond this summer.

Cinema in the City screenings will be staged at hidden sites throughout the city region from the start of July and will showcase the best independent cinema as well as emerging talent from local filmmakers.

Food and drink will also be on offer.

The opening series of films will be shown on the roof garden of the Cotton Exchange in Old Hall Street on July 2-4.

On Friday, July 2 there is a chance to see director brothers Bill and Turner Ross’s Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets.

Saturday, July 3 sees the screening of BAFTA-nominated Ammonite, starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in a fictional look at the life of pioneering 19th Century palaeontologist Mary Anning.

And then on Sunday, July 4 it is the turn of director Christos Nikou’s Apples.

Maray will host a pop-up food stall on each of the three evenings.

Further venues and films are yet to be announced.

Cinema in the City is presented by FACT and supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network. The Cotton Exchange event is presented in partnership with Bruntwood.
