Another Roar With Chris Morris

Chris Morris is to return to Manchester’s Cornerhouse art cinema next week for a special screening of his controversial film Four Lions.

The former It Crowd star, who was also the brains behind Nathan Barley, The Day Today, Jam and Brasseye, previously gave a sell-out surprise appearance at the venue during its brief run earlier this year.  The film was his first theatrical feature, which told the tale of five would-be suicide bombers in Northern England plotting to blow themselves up during the London Marathon.

Featuring a cameo appearance from another TVO favourite, Julia Davis, the film received rave reviews worldwide – including our very own review here – and was recently released in the USA.

The screening takes place on Wednesday December 15th at 6pm.  Joining Morris will be Associate Producers Faisal A. Qureshi and Afi Khan, and Costume Designer Charlotte Walter.

Tickets can be purchased for £10.50 via the Cornerhouse website, and seating is unreserved.  Concessions are also available.
