Freshers Screening: Hunt for the Wilderpeople at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 22 September 2016 - Visit now

If you are new in Manchester and in search of culture, then your first port of call should probably be arts hub, HOME. Located a short walk from Oxford Road, HOME boasts the best and broadest cinema offer in the city screened across its five screens. Newly opened last year, the modern building also includes an art gallery, two theatres, a pair of bars, a restaurant serving good-quality, affordable food and, top tip right here: a student-friendly roof terrace that’s perfect for enjoying the last of the summer sun.

As a special welcome to the city treat, HOME’s cinema team have lined up a free Freshers screening of New Zealand filmmaker, Taika Waititi’s Hunt For the Wilderpeople for Manchester’s 16/17 freshers on Thursday 22nd September at 11am.

Julian Dennison stars as hip-hop enthusiast Ricky, a boy settling into life with his new foster family: Aunt Bella (Rima Te Wiata), cantankerous Uncle Hec (Sam Neill), and dog Tupac, when tragedy strikes and he and Hec are forced to go on the run in the New Zealand countryside. The director’s last film – vampire mockumentary, What We Do in the Shadows – was hilarious and there’s been a steady buzz growing around ‘Wilderpeople all year.

Tickets are available at the Box Office, allocated on a first-come, first served basis and subject to availability – so grab them while you can.
