The Showroom Cinema in Sheffield is hosting a special screening with actor Malcolm McDowell as part of HorrorCon.

The red carpet will be rolled out and McDowell – who hails from Yorkshire – will take part in a Q&A followed by the screening of A Clockwork Orange.

Ian Wild, chief executive of Showroom Workstation, said: “It’s really exciting to have an actor of Malcolm McDowell’s calibre appearing at Showroom, to give us unrivalled insight into the making of a truly classic film.

“Malcolm will no doubt give us all a new perspective on a film that had a huge influence on film and culture: the imagery and story of ‘A Clockwork Orange’ remain major cultural talking points to this day.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming fans of the film, novel and of Kubrick and McDowell themselves to Showroom to enjoy this rare experience.”

The event will be hosted by Tony Earnshaw, a journalist and broadcaster who has worked as head of film programming at the National Media Museum.

HorrorConUK is taking place at Magna this year, and features special guest signings, photo ops, international film screenings and Q&A.

The event with Malcolm McDowell at Showroom Cinema will begin at 7pm on May 20.

Tickets cost £30 and are bookable via the Box Office, or through www.showroomworkstation.org.uk
