Richard Ayoade is to attend a preview screening of his movie directorial debut, Submarine, in Manchester.

The director, writer and of course, star of Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace,  The IT Crowd and, amongst many other notable TVO appearances, a little show called The Mighty Boosh, has been touring the film around festivals for some time, and it is now due for general release on March 18th.

The day before that, Thursday March 17th, Richard will be the guest of honour at a Q&A session hosted by independent arthouse cinema The Cornerhouse on the city’s famous Oxford Road.  The Cornerhouse has previously showcased preview screenings of Four Lions and prides itself on championing cinematic alternatives to brain-dead blockbuster fare.

Tickets for the screening, which begins at 6pm on March 17th, are available now priced £10.50 {concessions £8.50} via the cinema’s website, and these include the Q&A session.

The film – which stars Paddy Considine [Hot Fuzz, 24 Hour Party People] and Craig Roberts [Becoming Human] – is on general release at the cinema… and nationwide for that matter, the following day.

The Submarine trailer can be viewed below, and both the film and this rare chance to grill one of the less public members of Booshdom are not to be missed.

    I’m guessing it won’t be shown in cinemas in Norway, well well. I’m more than happy to wait for it’s DVD release 🙂
