Film fans are being invited to enjoy a fun-filled ‘Night at the Movies’ to celebrate all that is glittering about the big screen.
Tickets are now on sale for the event, which will be staged on July 6th to mark the end of Highfields’ first ever Young Wolf Film Festival.
Members of the public are being invited to join in the celebrations, which will include an outdoor movie experience, a sing-a-long screening of The Greatest Showman and live entertainment. Visitors are being encouraged to dress as their favourite film characters for the festivities. The event will also incorporate this year’s Summer Song & Dance show, which will feature students from all year groups taking to the stage to showcase their singing, dancing and musical talents.
The Night At The Movies event will be the grande finale of the hotly-anticipated Young Wolf Film Festival, which is being launched to celebrate the talents of budding film directors, news anchors, producers and performers from across the City.
The festival runs from July 2nd to 6th and features a packed programme of events involving dozens of students from schools and Sixth Forms across Wolverhampton. It will kick off with a trip to the Electric Cinema, the UK’s oldest working cinema, before students attend the glittering DIGI Awards at Wolverhampton’s Grand Theatre. It will also feature a day of interactive workshops giving students the chance to work with professional sound designers, make-up artists and special effects experts as well as an awards evening.
Ms S Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Performance, said: “We are delighted to invite students, staff, their families and members of the public to our Night At The Movies event, which will mark the end of our first ever Film Festival. It promises to be a really fun evening with lots going on to entertain visitors and celebrate the world of film.
“It is a fitting finale to the festival and we are pleased to be able to incorporate our annual Summer Song & Dance show, which is always a great night of entertainment. We look forward to seeing you all there for a fantastic, fun-filled evening."
Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Humanities LRC.
