We are pleased to announce that the North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University will be screening a selection of its films at the Liverpool on Film event at FACT on Monday 5th September, 2.00pm.

\r\n

The films to be shown will feature life in and around Liverpool from the earliest days of filmmaking in 1897 through to the 1980’s. Much of the archived material being screened has not been seen in decades and a few favourites will be shown on the big screen as they were originally intended.

\r\n

Highlights of the programme include the classic Lumiere Brothers views of the city and river in 1897, an early wartime newsreel of recruiting in Anfield in 1915 and an in depth look at daily life around the city in 1929.

\r\n

Tickets cost £5 or £4 for concessions. You can buy them online, in person at the Box Office or by calling 0871 902 5737.
