Film

some like it hot

Providing a unique insight into films not available elsewhere in Plymouth or the South West, the Jill Craigie Cinema explores hidden gems of past cinema, critical documentaries and daring cult films that will inspire, scare and surprise.

Many films are accompanied by talks from film directors, film makers and critics who provide a fascinating insight into the changing culture of moving image.

The Jill Craigie Cinema is located on the ground floor of the Roland Levinsky Building, Drake Circus campus.

Visions season

Artists have long been associated with having visionary outlooks, whether inspired by dreams or questioning existing ideas, we have come to expect artists and creative thinkers to provide new ways of understanding and seeing the world. From the quiet, meditative drawings of the Thinking Tantra exhibition that traces the relationship between Indian Tantric art and aspects of Western abstract art, to the Words and Music Festival: The Roaring Twenties that explores the seismic cultural shifts that were happening across music, film and art at that time, this season explores visions in all its cultural forms. Our programmers and academic colleagues, working with Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives, have sought to bring together a vibrant programme of films, talks, exhibitions, performances and music events that open up new opportunities to engage with the visions, both historical and contemporary, that have changed the way we experience the world.
