Film Season: Northern Noir presents The Jubilee Show Reel at Waterside Arts Centre

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Film Season: The Jubilee Show Reel at Waterside, Manchester 23 March — 27 April 2017 Tickets from £8.00

1977 was a significant year in film. A little film called Star Wars was about to make a splash; Woody Allen would release one of the best romantic comedies of all time in Annie Hall; and David Lynch would make his feature debut with midnight movie phenomenon Eraserhead. Outside of the cinema, the world was moving further away from the events of World War 2; the Punk movement was at full tilt; Concord took to the air and Britain saw celebrations in the streets for the Queen’s Jubilee.

Over at Waterside Arts Centre this month, Northern Noir have handpicked three films from 1977 to provide a backdrop for a discussion of some of the year’s key themes and events.
