Regent Street Cinema is Britain's oldest picturehouse. On 21 February 1896, it became the birthplace of cinema in the UK, when the Lumière brothers used their Cinematographé machine to show the earliest of moving images to a paying audience. Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster.
Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as the reluctant but never shy voice of the riot grrrl movement. She became one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons, a cultural lightning rod. Her critics wished she would just shut-up, and her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna, The Punk Singer takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.
