Summer Screenings – Daisies 
Tuesday 3 August 
£0 –£6

Surreal, rebellious, and absurdly funny, Daisies is a masterpiece of experimental cinema. Created and directed by Věra Chytilová, this comedy-drama was banned in the Czech Republic for its anarchistic critique. Only later did the film gain the critical recognition it deserves.  Book a ticket

Summer Screenings – Tangerine 
Tuesday 3 August 
£0 –£6

Tangerine is bright, bold, and biting. Set on Christmas Eve, this comedy-drama follows two trans sex workers, as they thirst for vengeance and run riot through Hollywood.
