FLIM NITE presents 'Pan's Labyrinth'

The Three Minute Theatre
Afflecks Arcade,
35-39, Oldham Street,
Manchester M1 1JG

What would ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ look like chewed up and spat out by comedians, theatremakers, writers and musicians?

We have created a labyrinthine underworld in order to test the moral strength of our artists and let the creative juices flow! Come and find out what their deepest fears are!

Watch as our acts distort a Spanish language dark fantasy movie into something ridiculous, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each one of them with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There’s no way of telling what will happen.

FLIM NITE is a monthly experimental performance night based at Three Minute Theatre in Manchester's Northern Quarter. We’re in our fourth year and showing no signs of stopping.

We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.

LINE-UP including ROSIE GARLAND, SARAH BENNETTO, JOZ NORRIS,

“The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it’s unlike any other night around!” - The Skinny

"With all the ramshackle pop-anarchism of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and the warmth, variety and bonhomie of a fringe arts night, FLIM NITE is going from strength to strength and is not to be missed." - NARC

FLIM NITE is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and the National Lottery through the Grants for the arts scheme.

Manchester Histories Festival launch

Manchester Histories Festival at Manchester Art Gallery

7th June 2018
The Manchester Histories Festival launch was a great event. I was invited to read my commissioned piece 'Syrinx' next to the painting that inspired it (‘Syrinx’ by Arthur Hacker). And I was surrounded by the paintings targeted in the 1913 Suffragette direct action – a truly atmospheric experience.
Proud to share the evening with marvellous writers Kate Feld, Michelle Green & Maz Hedgehog.
Thank you Manchester Histories Festival!
