The old George Henry Lee building is about to be transformed into a pop up cinema as part of the Liverpool Biennial festival of contemporary visual art.

The building will be used by artists as part of the Independent’s Biennial, featuring three floors of exhibitions plus a pop up cinema brought to you by Empty Spaces Cinema – who popped up at Smithdown Road’s Handymans Supermarket last year before it opened as a brewery and bar.

The team are planning regular pop up screenings over their 3 month residency, partnering with different film projects along the way. They’ll be an eclectic choice of films, with 90’s horror classic, The Craft being one of the first to be announced.
