The film is a witty modernisation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew retold in an American high school setting, accompanied by an incredible 90's modern rock soundtrack to warm your February cockles. 

Ahead of the screening, there will be live music in the car park by Sheffield's Kiziah and the Kings plus local street food to fall in love with.

Inside the Picture House there will be a pop-up bar (serving themed cocktails, mulled cider, hot chocolates, Prosecco and local beers) and a DJ. Audience members will be seated on cosy retro cinema seats inside the Picture House to enjoy the film.

Audience members are advised to dress up warm and bring blankets as the Picture House can get chilly.
