The Village Screen pop-up cinema is returning to the stunning, Grade II* listed Victoria Baths in Manchester on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th July with a quirky 80s-themed weekend.

They will be showing Back to the Future on Friday 28th July and Dirty Dancingon Saturday 29th July. Doors will open at 7pm each night.

They will be joined by local DJ – Matt Hydes – as well as local food traders Proove Pizza, the Blue Caribou Poutine, Fat Annies and Ginger’s Comfort Emporium. The Village Screen bar will be open each evening serving cocktails, prosecco, wines, craft beers and soft drinks. Audiences will be seated on vintage beach deckchairs in the Gala pool, as well on wooden seating in the Gallery level (above the pool), to watch the films on a huge, 16ft screen.

Claire, founder of the Village Screen, says “The 80s was an awesome decade and we want to celebrate it with great music, street food, entertainment, music and films. We always aim to show brilliant films in unusual and quirky places and we can’t wait to be back at Victoria Baths again. Why not get a perm for the occasion? Embrace the 80’s folks! Don’t forget to wrap up warm though as Victoria Baths can get a little chilly.”
