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.

The Three Minute Theatre, Manchester
Doors at 7.30pm, acts start at 8pm sharp
£3 suggested donation on the door

Finally, I can announce that I am inaugural Writer-in-Residence at The John Rylands Library in Manchester. It’s fantastic news.
How? I put together a proposal, & asked. The power of asking, indeed.

Read the article in the University of Manchester magazine, here:

“When I first moved to Manchester I was stunned to discover this incredible library with such a surprising history,” remembers Rosie Garland, singer with Leeds post-punk band The March Violets and writer-in-residence at The John Rylands Library.
“It’s always been one of my favourite places in Manchester and the idea that I’m now working in it and writing about it as the Library’s first writer-in- residence is a dream come true.”

There’s a great article in Visit Manchester about the walking tour of the city inspired by The Night Brother!
