Art Walk

In anticipation of the Leeds International Film Festival I visited the the disused (now used a Zimbabwean church) Lyric Cinema in Armley.  Sadly not to see Robocop or Terminator 2 but to see a site specific film by artist Lucy Skaer commissioned by Pavilion. I was intrigued to see how an artist would tackle a project making a site specific film in an old cinema like this. I was thrilled to find out that this film would be shown on the original 1940s projectors which have been more or less untouched since the cinema closed down in 1988.
