The Debate: Is the silent audience outdated?

  • The Bluecoat School Lane, Liverpool L1 3BX (map)

Is it time to question the cinema code of conduct? Are noisy audiences disrespecting the artform? How can we make cinema a truely collective experience and include all? Are 'relaxed' screenings the only time the rules can be broken? In the 'turncoats' style, our debating teams will swap sides half way through.

Plus live audience voting and plenty of room for discussion.
