A Small Cinema is borne out of a fascination and desire to recreate the classic cinematic experience. During AND, A Small Cinema – on Bold Street is a unique short film screening event coinciding with Bold Street Festival. Artist collective Re-Dock will temporarily transform the former Rapid/Kind Charity Shop unit (next to Christian’s Fruit and Veg) into a cinema space for one day complete with smartly dressed ushers, velvet curtains, and popcorn!
During the day, there will be 3 screening programmes including a Children’s Matinee at 12pm, and 2 different public programmes at 4pm, and 6.30pm. Re-Dock have worked with Bold Street traders, collecting memories and exchanging ideas to develop and curate each of the 3 short film programmes. The shows will comprise short films from local, national and international filmmakers, cartoons and news-reels, and classic trailers comedies and cowboys – plus an interval with ice-cream!
The Small Cinema project has been funded by Liverpool City Council through the Grass-Roots Innovators scheme, enabling 4 different communities across the city to play host to ‘A Small Cinema,’ make it their own, and present it to the public.
