The grand finale of this years Streetland Festival will be the Streetland Outdoor Cinema, an outdoor pedal powered cinema, curated by Fran Higson. The Outdoor Cinema will held in the space that used to house the Hampden Picture House, a cinema that originally seated 1,040 people.
The Hampden Picture House, at 91 Westmoreland Street, was opened in December 1920 and closed again after nearly 50 years in 1969 - thereafter it was used as a bingo hall, a cycling club and a social club. It was a music venue until it was demolished in 2007. This event will give the local community the chance to reclaim it’s original communal space.
