Independent Cinema – The CubeBack
In the UK, Bristol’s Stokes Croft neighbourhood is characterised by the warm spirit of its dwellers, its accessible-to-all cultural centres, and its endless assortment of alternative, sustainable businesses. Tucked away in its bosom – The Cube Microplex.
Bristol-based photographer Alex Day spent a couple of evenings in the cultural haven, soaking up its distinctive buzz and documenting his experience along the way.
Captured with an iPhone 4 and a Yashica FX-3 35 camera with a Prinz flash.
With its Kids Kino Project – whereby volunteers screen films across the globe to children affected by natural disasters and humanitarian crises – and its free entry access for Bristol-based asylum seekers, the organisation’s social commitments extend far beyond those of your average cinema.
The Cube’s events programme is carefully curated to appeal to its extensive and diverse audience. Regular Babycinema screenings, Nanoplex kids workshops and live music concerts mean there’s something for everyone.
