In light of the latest advice from the Government around Coronavirus (COVID-19) our Filmhouse Sunderland partners, Empire Cinemas have taken the decision to temporarily close its UK sites, including Empire Sunderland.
This means that our forthcoming screenings on 19 March (PARASITE), 26 March (LITTLE JOE) and 2 April (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) are postponed.
Filmhouse Sunderland is not going anywhere, but it does mean that sadly we will be taking a short break until we and the film industry are able to celebrate cinema with you once again.
About Filmhouse Sunderland
A new project from the people behind Sunderland Shorts Film Festival, Filmhouse Sunderland is a new weekly programme screening new independent feature films, documentaries, rereleases and foreign language movies.
Supported by Film Hub North, part of the British Film Institute (BFI)’s Film Audiences Network, Filmhouse Sunderland events will happen at the city’s Empire Cinema on Thursday early evenings until July 2020.
Devised and delivered by the team behind Sunderland Shorts Film Festival (supported by Sunderland City Council) and north east film consultant Jonny Tull, Filmhouse Sunderland brings new independent movies to Sunderland’s cinema screens.
Tickets are priced at just £5 (£4 concessions).
