We finish our residency at George Henry Lee’s this month with two film events and a fantastic exhibition.
October marks the end of our time as part of the Independents Biennial and we are ending our stint with three collaborations.
Throughout the month the cinema space is transformed, thanks to TSOIT. The Library of TSOIT looks to promote the sharing of knowledge and interests, and explore the repurposing of abandoned spaces. To create this exhibition, TSOIT invited writers, designers, illustrators, artists, historians, musicians and curators – all with links to Liverpool – to produce something fascinating in response to an area of knowledge.
October is the time that people’s minds turn to horror so we are teaming up with the Screaming Queenz podcast for a classic. Theatre of Blood features Vincent Price, who plays Edward Lionheart, a failed theatre actor who stages ever more increasingly strange ways of killing off his critics. The film will be followed with a live podcast recording from Screaming Queenz Horror Podcast.
Finally we team up with Liverpool Irish Festival for a rare screening of Lamb. Michael Lamb (Liam Neeson) is an idealistic young Brother, living in a brutal, west Ireland reformatory. The recent death of his father and growing anger at the mistreatment of a resident boy (Hugh O’Conor) prompts Lamb to take dramatic action; cash in his inheritance and flee with the boy to England.
