In support of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation we will be screening 'Black Roses: The killing of Sophie Lancaster' at 2pm in the Pavilion Theatre.  Black Roses is written as an elegy to Sophie with poetry by Simon Armitage OBE, Professor of Poetry at Oxford University, spoken alongside the words of Sophie's mother Sylvia Lancaster OBE. The film (produced by the BBC Education Zone) moves seamlessly from Sylvia’s candid descriptions of Sophie’s life and death, to the haunting poetry and back again.  After the screening there will be a Q&A session with Sophie's mother Sylvia Lancaster to discuss the film and the role this has played in furthering the important work of the Foundation set up in Sophie's memory.

 Borley Rectory (2017) plus Directors Q&A with Ashley Thorpe

 TIME: 17:00

 Borley Rectory is an animated documentary chronicling what came to be known as 'The most   haunted house in England'. The legends attached to the rectory at Borley and famed paranormal   investigator Harry Price's subsequent investigations of them, caught the public's imagination during   the late 20's in time becoming one of the world's most notorious ghost stories. Borley Rectory will   examine the legend, the controversial investigations and a ghost story that may well reveal more   about what might have been missing from Borley rather than what might have been invading it.

Director: Ashley Thorpe
Writer: Ashley Thorpe
Stars: Jonathan Rigby, Reece Shearsmith, Annabel Bates, Julian Sands, Claire Amais

Admission:  £5 (including Q&A with Ashley Thorpe)

 Jonathan Rigby's EURO GOTHIC

 TIME: 19:30

The author of the acclaimed film histories English Gothic and American Gothic returns with an in-depth study of the lurid horror fantasies that emerged from the studios of Italy, Spain, France and Germany. From the Expressionist reveries of the Weimar Republic to the transgressive nightmares smuggled past the Franco regime, via surrealist Gallic fever-dreams and psychedelic shockers from Cinecittà, Jonathan Rigby brings his incisive scrutiny to bear on more than 100 key films spanning a period of some 80 years. The result is another absorbing chronicle of one of cinema's most enduring but misunderstood genres.
