Coronavirus Cancellation Update

If you are a student at the University of Sheffield, you will have already seen Vice-Chancellor Koen Lamberts’ email regarding the University’s decision to cancel all face-to-face teaching for the foreseeable future due to the cases of coronavirus in the student and staff population. While this decision has not been an easy one to make, we (the committee) have elected to follow the University’s example and cancel all screenings until further notice.

There are risks which come along with hosting large events such as film screenings and festivals. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our valued patrons and dedicated volunteers. What is more, we pride ourselves on being a community-focused cinema. We cannot in good faith put the most vulnerable and susceptible people in the local community at risk.

We are currently liaising with the Box Office regarding refunding tickets. Once we have more clarity on this matter, we will post all new information on our Facebook page alert you if we are able to resume screenings. If you have any questions in the meantime, please message or email us.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience or upset this decision may cause but we hope you can understand why we are implementing such precautionary measures.

Surreal, savage and superbly performed, Ladyworld is Lord of the Flies for a modern, more unhinged age. Eight teenagers at a birthday party find themselves stranded in a house after a catastrophic earthquake. They begin to run out of food and water and with no hope of rescue the girls become more and more scared, especially when someone claims to have spotted a strange man hiding somewhere in the house with them. As fear takes over and the girls slip closer to insanity, their baser instincts and desires take over and vicious manipulation becomes the tactic for survival of the fittest. Amanda Kramer’s feature film debut is a nightmarish, gruesome attack on the audience’s psyche which refuses to pigeonhole female identity.
