A jam packed January ahead

Happy New Year! We hope you’re now fully recovered from the festive season and ready for our exciting programme of art, events and great films to kick start your new year.
Here are our January highlights – Enjoy!

Our new exhibition The People You’re Not opens at the end of this month, inspired by the unfulfilled projects from Unrealised Potential. The exhibition is a satirical trip through the private and public faces of fame, which interprets ideas from legendary Mancunian artist Edward Barton, infamous balladeer Norman Clayture and popular comic Harry Hill.

We’ve also got some great new releases this month including the highly acclaimed 127 Hours directed by our patron Danny Boyle and the powerful Oscar front runner, The King’s Speech featuring Colin Firth. We are also screening brilliantlove, as part of our New British Quarterly programme showing the best British films from the festival circuit. Each NBQ film screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with the filmmakers. Talking of Q&A’s this Saturday we are pleased to welcome actor/director Diego Luna, star of Y Tu Mamá También and Milk, and producer Pablo Cruz (Sin Nombre, Sólo quiero caminar and I’m Gonna Explode) for an introduction and post-screening Q&A session, following the showing of the feature film, Abel. And don’t forget our Matinee Classics with 1960’s classic Peeping Tom showing on the big screen on Sun 9 and Wed 12 Jan.

UnSpooling – Artists & Cinema comes to an end this Sunday with an exhibition tour with a difference on Saturday as curators from Cornerhouse and Manchester Art Gallery lead you through each others current exhibitions.

Also this month you can also see Kai-Oi Jay Yung’s exhibition, Edition #2 – Interval; A Narrative Psychosis in Gallery 1 until Sun 16 Jan. The exhibition features a compelling video installation that draws upon Yung’s recent investigative journey across Hong Kong and California.

So there you have it – just a few thing to come and see over the month!
