Lost City screening will run as planned on the 17th Sept. The vintage bus will not.

31 Aug

Ticket sales for the bus tour have been slower than a steam tram going up Church Bank on icy rails. Seeing I would be paying for any shortfall I took the decision today to cancel early.

The documentary about Priestley coming back to Bradford will be screened at Pictureville, and I will offer to take the few that have bought tickets for the bus trip to the places seen in the film, by service bus; but not on the 17th.

Lost City poster from 1998.

13 Aug

I have just found a poster I created on a Macintosh Plus for a showing of J.B.Priestley’s Lost City, at Pictureville, which I organised for the 9th May, 1998. I have not seen the film since, but the poster has enough details to make it worth reproducing.

Don’t forget that tickets for a showing of this film and a vintage bus tour of various scenes from the film are available for £15 from The Record Cafe ( 01274 723143 ) and Sparrow Bar ( 01274 270772 ). The film will be shown at Pictureville again, starting at 11.00. Sunday 17th Sept.

LOST CITY

FEATURING

SALTBURN PLACE (Where the great man grew up.)

SWAN ARCADE (He worked there, but he couldn’t save it!)

LISTER PARK (Where the brass band played, and there was lots of ‘tiddly om-pom-pom!)

THEATRE ROYAL (Where the great Irving gave “Into your hands O Lord!” and then died at the Midland.)

KIRKGATE MARKET (Pie Toms, the toothless and 6 plates for a dollar!)

EMPIRE THEATRE (Where Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin performed)

ALSO TROLLEYBUSES

J.B.Priestley returns to Bradford, the city of his lost youth. A historically fascinating, evocative and charming film.

 

Tiny leaflet display amongst the permanent in Hubberholme Church. I used penknife, cable ties & the sense I were born with.
