FOL­LOW­ING the launch at Brad­ford Cathe­dral, plus sell­out screen­ings in Mal­ham and at Hard­cas­tle Crags and Gibson Mill, Tour de Cin­ema continues at iconic lo­ca­tions through­out York­shire and the Peak District un­til the Grand Dé­part of the Tour de France in Leeds on July 5.

On June 14, the rarely seen Alan Ben­nett BBC doc­u­men­tary A Day Out will be screened at Foun­tains Abbey, one of the largest and best pre­served ru­ined Cis­ter­cian monas­ter­ies in Eng­land.

The abbey will pro­vide a spec­tac­u­lar back­drop for this spe­cial evening of clas­sic films and cut­ting-edge doc­u­men­tary.

The Tour de Cin­ema pro­gramme will also of­fer au­di­ences an op­por­tu­nity to watch films about York­shire, in­clud­ing an­other chance to see The Big Melt, Martin Wal­lace and Jarvis Cocker’s cel­e­bra­tion of the century of steel, which was per­formed live at Sh­effield Doc/Fest last June. The Big Melt will screen at sev­eral lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Ravenscar on June 21.

The penul­ti­mate event will take place on July 2 in Mil­len­nium Square, Leeds, ahead of the Grand Dé­part with a screen­ing of the won­der­ful 1949 French com­edy Jour de Fête, di­rected by Jac­ques Tati, as well as other bike-themed films.
