Jungle Book activities planned at screenings in Sheffield

An interactive cinema company is to screen a film in the city for families and adults with learning difficulties.

Handmade Cinema will screen family favourite Jungle Book at the Burton Street Foundation in Hillsborough.

Using giant props and handcrafted scenery the ‘immersive screening’ is geared at giving people a different way to watch a film.

The Burton Street Foundation’s recently renovated ‘Bamforth Building’ will be transformed into an Indian jungle for two afternoons of arts and crafts, live music and face painting as part of the film screenings.

The first screening is to be held on Friday, May 13 and is specifically for Burton Street’s clients.

The second screening on Sunday, May 15 is open to the general public.

Handmade Cinema was set up to change the way people watch films

Burton Street’s managing director, Claire Mappin, said: “Handmade Cinema has created a style of cinema which engages the audience from start to finish and enables individuals to feel part of the process.”

“This is something we love to do at Burton Street, so to work with another organisation which shares this approach has been a joy.”
