Spring / Summer Programme Highlights

Thu, 2 Jun 2011

It’s been an exciting few months for Cine Yorkshire, working with our partners and venues to bring some truly unforgettable events to the county this spring. North Yorkshire Digital Cinema, a partnership of Screen Yorkshire, National Media Museum and Blaize, has now screened over 100 films to a total audience of nearly 9000 people since it launched in September 2010. Here’s a snapshot of some highlights.

On Saturday 14th May, Screenwaves presented the UK's first film screening run entirely from hydro power from an Archimedes Screw. Howsham Mill, a Georgian watermill dating from c.1755, sits on a tiny island in the River Derwent at Howsham, North Yorkshire. The programme on the evening included Submarine (from Sheffield’s Warp Films), Pulmo Marina and Summer. It was a magical evening for all who attended, including Mark Dolan, presenter of Sky Movies 35mm programme, who was there to record a feature for the show! You can watch online here.
