Lights, camera, ACTION!

Have you heard of the new Meetup Film Club? Slaughterhouse Presents . After the success of the last full day show, it was an easy decision to make to roll it out to a monthly event. So make a date in your diaries for Saturday 11th August and meet up and network, enjoy a trio of themed films into the night, we look forward to seeing you down at the studio every month.

Here are a few testimonials from last month:

Marion Rubins

Thank you. I had such a good time. Hysterical movie, Fab ice lollies and twiglet’s. Loved the comfy chairs. Brill studio too.

Simon Sharman

Great afternoon had all round, Iron Sky was a bunch of laughs. Good job, Sid.

As its residents will freely volunteer, the weather in Greater Manchester is never as it should be. If it’s not too cold, too wet, too cloudy, too sunny, too drizzly, or not enough of one or more of the above conditions, it’s either too hot or not quite warm enough. You just can’t please all of the people all of the time and, whatever the weather, you won’t have to go far within the M postcode to find someone who will vibrantly share their disappointment with you, whether you like it or not.

So it is for these reasons that, every year, I welcome the return of the Slaughterhouse Studios Pop-Up Cinema. Not only are curmudgeons instructed to silence themselves, you can guarantee that, unlike the persistently disagreeable conditions outside, SSPUC (as it shall henceforth be abbreviated) is always both dark enough and warm enough, but never too dark and not too warm. To spend a Saturday afternoon in either blazing sunshine or pissing rain is anathema to Mancunians and SSPUC provides the perfect panacea. Furthermore, with Sainsbury’s just a short walk away, you can arrive early, stock up on all the nutrients you need, seat yourself on one of SSPUC’s comfy sofas (or your own seating if you can) and enjoy a triple bill of classic films.

Imagine spending the afternoon in a womb, but a womb that shows movies. That’s how brilliant it is.
