The Conference (9:00-18:00)
Speakers from across the film exhibition industry will join academics to discuss for the first time at a national level the field of live cinema: film screenings augmented through live performance or immersive elements, including site-specific locations, technological intervention, social media engagement, and all manner of simultaneous interactive moments including singing, dancing, eating, drinking and smelling.

Hangmen Re-hanged (18:45-22:45*)
We have devised a novel experience which draws together multiple elements, sensations and new collaborations from the live cinema and event cinema domains.
Our event is centered on a film screening of the play The Hangmen (by Martin McDonagh) which was originally streamed live to cinemas on 3rd March to conclude its successful West End run. We will reintroduce The Hangmen’s theatrical context and the liveness of its original broadcast through a unique fusion of performance, film and food in a playful re-play of the play!
For the first time, the forms and aesthetics of ‘event’ cinema, ‘live’ cinema and promenade theatre are united in a hybrid, multi-layered, immersive and sensory experience, which promises to delight, surprise and enthrall the audience.

(Devised by Sarah Atkinson & Helen Kennedy in partnership with NT Live, Omnibus and Edible Cinema with Bombay Sapphire.)
