Deck Chairs and Documentaries – Film Comes To Orange Box




Orange Box young people’s centre in Halifax will be launching its first ever film season this September with deck chairs and documentaries.

Starting on 8th September and running every Thursday evening until Christmas, Orange Box will be showing a selection of little known documentaries which audiences can enjoy sitting in deck chairs. With tickets from as little as £2 for under 18s and £4 for adults, the films have been picked in response to The BFI Film Audience Network’s ground-breaking initiative to give audiences the opportunity to see a diverse range of films in a cinema setting.

Orange Box Centre Manager Tom Kendall, who has programmed the season, said, “This will be an affordable film experience like no other where the audience can sit back in deck chairs and revel in the fact that the documentaries they will be watching are not available everywhere. Audiences can also enjoy pizza and popcorn from the Orange Box Café while watching the films.”

The season will begin celebrating Orange Box’s 3rd birthday with The Divide, and continues with ground breaking documentary Power in Our Hands and Patricio Guzmán’s The Pearl Button. The rest of the season includes showings of The Imposter; a double bill of NG83 and David Vaughan Black on Canvas; hard-hitting The Act of Killing; and two films picked by 5 – 19 year olds for the Into Film Festival, as well as director’s talks.

Tom Kendall said, “We have chosen lesser known documentaries because we wanted to offer something different for cinema audiences away from the mainstream and art house offerings. Some of the films are more community based with the aim to start discussion groups and a programming group, which will create a community cinema where the audience pick the films.”
