A Taste of Honey Screening


A Taste of Honey




What do you remember about going to the cinema in the 60s? As part of a nationwide project researching the history of 1960s cinema film historian Dr Melvyn Stokes introduces a special screening of 1961 classic A Taste of Honey at Bradford’s National Media Museum on Wednesday 23 September.


For many people 1960s films summed up the decade’s transformation of British society and this project aims to document how those films were received and remembered. Having gathered over a thousand memories of cinema going in the 60s Dr Stokes is now touring the UK to share these stories with cinema goers.


A Taste of Honey – screening at 6pm on real 35mm film – will be followed by a discussion of the project’s findings and a chance to share your own memories of 60s film-going.


Directed by Shipley born Tony Richardson – this is a classic of 60s kitchen sink cinema, adapted from the stage play written by Shelagh Delaney and starring Rita Tushingham as the put-upon Manchester teenager Jo.
