Manchester will play host to the exclusive first preview of independent thriller, ‘Keeping Rosy’ starring Maxine Peake and Inbetweeners’ star Blake Harrison from 6th June for 4 weeks before its national UK release in July.


In true Manchester style, the tense psychological thriller will not be debuted at a generic screening in a nameless bar, but rather in the top of an office block in the city centre, so the audience can fully immerse themselves in the surroundings of the film. Other surprise touches help bring the film to life for film-goers.

Oozing with tension, the film takes the audience on a heart-racing journey of the disintegration of London-based career woman Charlotte’s (Maxine Peake) ‘perfect world’. As her life unravels, the plot becomes darker with the introduction of Blake’s character ‘Roger’ – a violent, psychopathic security guard. Rochdale-born actress Christine Bottomley plays Charlotte’s sister.

The immersive pop up cinema will be hosted at
55 Portland Street
Two showings per evening (18.30 and 21.00)
Tickets available here.
