OXIDE GHOSTS: The Brass Eye Tapes

Thu 10 March // Chapeltown Picture House // 19:00

Back in Season 2 we played host to the sellout world premiere of Oxide Ghosts to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the greatest piece of satire in british comedy history: Brass Eye! As part of the shows 25th anniversary, director Michael Cumming (Toast of London, King Rocker) is bringing the film back to Manchester along with a very special intro and Q&A!

​Made from hundreds of hours of unseen and behind the scenes footage from his personal archive, Michael Cumming’s film shares insights into the process of making the legendary TV series Brass Eye. Michael directed the series and both pilots and, over a two-year period, witnessed the highs and lows from a very personal perspective. Oxide Ghosts carries the blessing of Chris Morris and provides a unique glimpse of his extraordinary working practices.

‘Oxide Ghosts offers a well-judged and very rare insight into Brass Eye’s making. If you're an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see it, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation' - Chortle

‘In honour of the Brass Eye birthday there have been tributes published and repeats scheduled, but the surprise popularity of an almost unpublicised touring event, called Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes, perhaps says even more about the enduring influence of the show. Oxide Ghosts has been quietly selling out in independent cinemas across the land’ - The Guardian

Our last Oxide Ghosts screening (and many after it) sold out, so don't wait to grab tickets!
