Cinema Paradiso


Fourth Thursday of the month throughout 2018

Cinema Paradiso takes place each month, on the fourth Thursday of the month, throughout the year from 17:30pm to 19:30pm.

At our monthly film night, we watch and talk about independent and international films. We invite everyone to join us for viewings and discussions at our monthly film night.

Thursday 24 May, Nightcleaners (Berwick St Collective, UK, 1975, 90 mins)

At our monthly film night, we watch and talk about independent and international films. 

Nightcleaners, by Berwick St Collective, is a documentary about the unionisation of women who cleaned office blocks in London at night and were underpaid and under-valued.

Berwick St Collective, formed of three key members (with contributions by others), worked between 1970 and 1980 to make feature-length documentaries that tackled Britain’s social and political issues of the day. They highlighted the struggles of marginalised groups such as the working class or migrant families.

In a year of celebrating women’s rights and pushing for further equality, the questions raised by this film are as relevant as ever. This screening is part of Local History Month, and the discussion draws on local comparisons from the era, highlighting examples of demands for women workers’ rights in Teesside. This film was selected by, and is facilitated with, Rosemary Stubbs, PhD candidate in the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Law, at Teesside University.

 

Organised with local charity Investing in People and Culture. 

We no longer provide a meal for Cinema Paradiso but you are welcome to bring snacks and drinks. Everyone is welcome to  join Community Lunch at 1.00pm every Thursday, further information is here

This is a session for adults. We hold a  family-friendly Film Club on the fourth Saturday of each month.

Organised with local charity Investing in People and Culture.
