The Purple Rose of Cairo

Allen 1985

IN COLLABORATION WITH SHEFFIELD FRIDAYNIGHTRIDE
Friday 6 JANUARY 2012
HARLAND CAFE (FORMERLY CAFE EURO), JOHN STREET S2 4QU

It was the perfect end to the first FridayNightRide of 2012, which took a tour of Sheffield cinemas past and present. Woody Allen’s funny and heartwarming film was a reminder of why we love cinema – how it transports you to another world for a couple of hours.

A new venue on our roster, the Harland Cafe was a wonderful (packed out) temporary cinema, with friendly hosts Sara and Steve serving up lovely food. We’ll certainly be back for another screening one day.

Sheffield FridayNightRide organiser Mick said, “For me the ride was an evocative experience of going to the cinema as a kid and as an adult, so to finish off with such an apt film that I had seen but poorly remembered was sublime.”

Thanks Mick, and thanks for making this our biggest screening yet!
