Manchester’s first immersive pop-up cinema launches with Keeping Rosy

Happy weekend everyone! The first official teaser trailer of ‘Keeping Rosy‘ is out now. Watch it below…

Manchester will play host to the first exclusive previews of new British independent film Keeping Rosy in a brand new immersive pop-up cinema. Starring Maxine Peake and Blake Harrison, this tense psychological thriller, will have a unique screening on the top floor of one of the city’s high-rise office blocks, which will truly immerse the audience in the films setting.

The film follows Charlotte (Maxine Peake), a London-based career woman whose life begins to unravel at work and at home. The plot takes as more sinister turn when the psychopathic security guard Roger (Blake Harrison) infiltrates Charlotte and her sister Sarah’s (Christine Bottomley) lives.

Keeping Rosy is the first feature from director Steve Reeves and marks the third collaboration from producers Richard Holmes and Isabelle Georgeaux, following on from British comedy Jadoo and war thriller Resistance.

“When we first started thinking about the film’s preview we knew we wanted to do it differently, Charlotte – Maxine’s character – is a very strong woman, whose roots – like Maxine’s – are in the North, which got us thinking that Manchester would be the perfect city for the film’s debut,” says Holmes. Georgeaux adds “We know that the people of Manchester like to do things differently, so we chose to use a tower block on Portland Street as the venue for cinema and have added some special touches to heighten the cinema experience for the audience. Most of the action in the film takes place in a high rise apartment block, so mirroring the film’s surroundings mean that the audience cannot help but feel involved in the action. We’re all really looking forward to seeing the audience’s reaction.”

Keeping Rosy will be previewed in Manchester on June 6th and will run for 4 weeks in the office block pop-up cinema at 55 Portland Street. The film will be released in cinemas nationwide from June 27th. You can purchase tickets for the Manchester screenings here.

Actress Maxine Peake to bring Morley sporting legend to stage

Actress Maxine Peake to bring Morley sporting legend to stage

Renowned actress Maxine Peake is to bring the life of Morley cycling heroine Beryl Burton to the stage in a new play.

Maxine, who has starred in TV shows Shameless, Silks and The Village, has written the play, Beryl, which she will also star in when it comes to the West Yorkshire Playhouse next summer.

The staging is being timed to coincide with the Tour de France’s Grand Depart from Leeds.

The actress, who is no stranger to the Playhouse stage having starred in a number of productions there, initially wrote a radio play about Beryl Burton, which aired on Radio 4 in 2012.

The West Yorkshire Playhouse has now commissioned the stage version to celebrate Yorkshire and Leeds’s role in the Tour de France.

It will tell the story of possibly Morley’s most succesful sporting figure – a woman who became a giant of her sport but remains relatively unknown outside of it.

Five times world champion, 13 times national champion, twice road-racing world champion and 12 times national champion, Beryl’s accolades include time trials, former world record holder, former British record holder, numerous sports awards and MBE and OBE.

She has been always held in great esteem in her home town and a number of permanent tributes have been paid to her since her death in 1996, including a plaque in Morley Town Hall and the mural which adorns the wall next to Beryl Burton Gardens in the town centre.

Maxine will be taking on the role of Beryl as she did in the radio version.

Beryl will be staged at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from June 30-July 19. Tickets are on sale now by calling 0113 213770 or online at wyp.org.uk.
