'73 Cinema' Officially Launches @ Tŷ Pawb
Updated: Aug 9, 2019
The brand new cinema programme from 73 Degree Films begins in September.
73 Cinema is a community-led cinema programme. Every other Thursday from September-Christmas 73 Cinema will screen a different film, providing access to independent and world cinema, from classics to new releases as well as in-competition short films, Q&As + more.
73 Degree Films are delighted to be working with Film Hub Wales and Wrexham Council to bring a new cinema programme to Wrexham. Ever since Tŷ Pawb opened it's been a huge ambition of ours to make this happen and we're extremely excited to roll out the red carpet and get going in September!
The programme includes a huge variety of films and events, with something for everyone. The opening film will be Gruff Rhys' 'American Interior', followed by new releases including Claire Denis' 'High Life' & the Aretha Franklin documentary 'Amazing Grace'.
A special Halloween screening of '28 Days Later' will take place on 31st October and in November the 1954 version of 'A Star is Born' starring Judy Garland will be specially screened as part of the 2019 BFI Musicals Season.
As part of the programme a selection of short films will also be showcased at each event. Filmmakers can submit their films now for a chance to win a selection of awards and prizes at filmfreeway.com/73cinema
The programme was finalised in July this year by a committee of community group representatives and dedicated film lovers!
Tickets for every event are available to purchase now at 73cinema.com Alternatively they can be purchased on the door (subject to availability) or reserved at Tŷ Pawb shop. There is also a full season pass available, allowing those that wish to attend everything to save 25%.
