Brown Paper Bag Box in LIFT (Leeds Intimate Film Theatre)

LIFT (Leeds Intimate Film Theatre): cinema in the Electric Press Goods Lift in the Carriage Works Theatre, Leeds, part of Light Night 2008. Curated by Harriet MacKenzie and Eva

Hatti McKenzie and Eva Mileusnic of McM Productions present “L.I.F.T.”, (Leeds Intimate Film Theatre) – a surreal, uplifting, cinematic event integrating art installation, performance and public participation.

They have transformed a service/goods lift, located in a busy commercial complex in the centre of Leeds, into a tiny retro Picture House installation.

Join Hatti and Eva as they perform the colourful character roles of Cheryl (Usherette), Beryl (Box Office Lady), Cyril (Projectionist) and Arthur (Commissionaire) - all frantically striving to keep the Picture House functioning in between the lift’s ‘real job’ of providing regular service trips to the basement.

Selected 90 second films by artists and film makers who responded to the theme surreal, magical, macabre, sinister and funny will be screened on the hour and last 15 minutes.

Dress to impress on the red carpet - you may catch the attention of our “paparazzi” and feature in future art productions!

Refreshments will be available during the interval and from the concession stand.

Admission is free, but tickets are limited and can only be booked and collected in person between 4pm – 10pm on the evening of 10th October from: The Leeds Intimate Film Theatre Box Office, Electric Press Building, Great George Street, Leeds.
