We have worked with several of the important independent cinemas in the UK that screen ‘specialised films’ (the term still used by the British Film Institute to distinguish films that are not mainstream Hollywood). Most of these cinemas have education officers who organise education screenings for students, training for teachers, evening classes and various events open to the general public including Q&As with directors, screenwriters etc. These are also likely to be the venues showing seasons of films alongside film festivals and re-issues – everything of interest to a cinephile!
Here are a selection of specialist cinemas, mainly in the North of England and Scotland:
Screen Argyll, Argyll and the Inner Hebrides
National Media Museum, Bradford
Curzon Community Cinema, Clevedon, Somerset
Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds
Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle
Rix Mix, Shoreditch, East London
We are happy to add any others to this list (especially from other UK nations and regions).
