Recently I headed down to the beautiful Armley Mills Industrial Museum to have a natter with the fabulously funny Minicine team – Woody and Abi.
As regular readers will know, I’m a long time supporter of Minicine, but only recently attended one of their screenings (check out my review for Westwood HERE and Wayne’s World HERE), who are based out of The Palace Picturehouse – one of the world’s smallest fully functional replica’s 1920’s cinemas.
We all of us (well two of us anyway) talk a mile a minute so we manage to cover A LOT of territory. Naturally, we discussed the origins of Minicine and the ethos that drives it, as well as the challenges of trying to come up with a program of events… let alone the associated audio and video playlists, reviews and pictures that are the playground of the truly obsessed!
Social cinema – as run by Minicine – is all encompassing, featuring cults, classics, foreign films as well as short films and anything else that Abi and Woody can sneak in, which leads to a particularly diverse and inclusive community atmosphere events. SPOILER – we pretty much decide it’s based on the
cake amazing films that the team have brought together season by season in the last few years.
Which naturally leads us onto their award winning years – as they are the recent recipients of the Film Society Of the Year Award for 2015!
We also took a sneak peek at its exciting plans for 2016 – including the upcoming Human Nature season.
