Important Notice

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.

(Tenki no ko)

This dazzling Japanese animation comes from the visionary director Makoto Shinkai, creator of the 2016 global hit Your Name.
In the summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, and he lives his days alone. Finally finding work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
A beautifully made environmental allegory, Weathering With You is just the latest example of Shinkai’s amazing work.

This screening will be introduced by Michael Tuckwell from SunnyCon.
