Bury has changed a great deal since 1963 and in that year Bury Cine Society made a dramatised feature length documentary film of daily life in the town. That film has now reached a new audience who did not know the town then.
Set in the early sixties the film follows the varied lives of the people of Bury during a typical working day. Among them the engineer at Walmsley’s, the student nurse at Bury General, the pensioner reminiscing about years gone by. Why Wednesday? Market Day, the Council meeting and the mid-week ‘Bury Times’!
Dawn to midnight as people go about their lives, both serious and amusing. Going out to work, making a date with a girl in the office and all in a Bury no longer in existence.
On Tuesday March 27th 2018 we will be screening this film at The Met in the Box Theatre starting at 7.30 in the evening. Tickets are available from The Met now.
After our show last year we are looking forward to the event, which is on the Tuesday before Good Friday.
Easy to remember.
