UCLAN

  • About
    UCLan has raised the curtain on a new Independent cinema development that will not only provide an additional strand of entertainment for the region’s cultural aficionados but will also provide real work experience opportunities for UCLan students.

    The campus-based cinema is being developed in partnership with Preston City Council and Preston Film Society.

    Forming part of UCLan’s £4.5 million Centre for Employability through the Humanities (CETH), the new facility opened its doors for the first time in the spring of 2006.

    * 110 seat, with wheelchair access and comfy seats.
    * Will screen national and international, non-mainstream films
    (and the occasional mainstream one too)
    * Regular classics screenings
    * Regular documentary nights.
    * Pre and post screening talks
    * Mini-festivals and retrospectives of actors, directors genres etc

    This will be a fantastic new venue not only for staff and students at the University but also for the people of Preston and the surrounding community. Independent cinemas play a crucial role in championing new talent and in developing opportunities within a wide range of creative media. The cinema will showcase the home-grown talent of our own students’ work in areas such as documentary film-making as well as exhibiting the latest work by filmmakers in the region and nationally.

    The new cinema is situated in a former UCLan lecture theatre but extensive building work has transformed the venue to include top of the range cinema seating and a ten metre screen together with modern projection equipment provided free of charge by Preston City Council.

    It is hoped that the cinema will become a hub of cultural regeneration attracting a range of related cultural exhibitions and activities including digital art presentations, poetry readings and work by arts based groups in the local community. .

    The employability aspect of this facility cannot be overstated. The University already has an excellent track record of producing graduates who are enterprising and employable. This new facility will enable us to consolidate our position as one of the leading institutions providing ‘live’ and realistic work environments for students wanting to enter careers in cinema and creative industries.
