Pop Up Cinema with Stockport Students

The Glass Umbrella was transformed into a pop-up cinema on Friday 4th January, when local Stockport students used the space to premiere their short film ‘The Good, The Bad and the Ordinary’.

The student team behind the film, Darklake Studios, won the award for ‘Best Schools and Colleges Short Film’ at Screen Stockport Film Festival last year, with their short film ‘Winnie the Pooh: Theatrical Trailer’.

Back then they were all students at Aquinas College but now they’ve gone on to study at different Universities around the country but were reunited for a week when they decided to shoot the film and then screen in at The Glass Umbrella.

The film went down brilliantly with the invited audience of friends and family, and showed exactly why they took home the prize for ‘Best Film’ at Screen Stockport, with their unique brand of of dark humour getting lots of laughs.

There was a great energy and atmosphere in the shop, and it showed that film events can work in the space. It was great to give the student team, headed up by Joe Lynn, the chance to have their film premiered as a real event in Stockport.

Supporting young filmmakers and young creative talent is what Screen Stockport and The Teenage Market is all about, and it was amazing to see our pop-up shop The Glass Umbrella be used in such an interesting, engaging and innovative way.
