Event description

Description

UP Projects’ FLOATING CINEMA will tour the waterways from Sheffield to Hull presenting IN DIALOGUE, a programme
 of feature films, documentaries and a newly commissioned artwork by Leeds based artist Harry Meadley.

Feature Film

Sunset Boulevard (1950)

Cert: PG

106 mins

Director: Billy Wilder

Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard is one of the most famous films from the golden age of Hollywood.

The story revolves around Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) a star of the silent era desperate to revive her career. Norma meets Joe Gillis (William Holden) and on hearing his profession persuades him into helping her with a comeback script that she's been working on for years. Joe realizes that the script is hopeless, but the money is good and he has nowhere else to go. Soon the cynical and opportunistic Joe becomes Norma's kept man. While they continue collaborating, Norma's loyal and protective chauffeur Max Von Mayerling contemptuously watches from a distance.

Episodes of Harry Meadley's new artwork On the Bench will be shown in advance of the feature film.
