George Orwell’s 1984 – The Ballet

  • Date: Thursday 27th September
  • Time: 7.30pm
  • Tickets: £7
  • Type: Film screening

Event cinema has grown from being almost non-existent to an extremely popular part of cinema culture over the last decade.

At this year’s festival we are celebrating this with a screening of the Northern Ballet’s captivating and chilling adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece, 1984.

1984 is the story of Winston Smith, a low-ranking member of the ruling party Oceania. The Party watches everything. The Party controls everything – the history, the language, the people, their thoughts. Everything is controlled, everything is uniform, there is no individuality.
