An exciting line-up has been revealed for the ‘Not For Rental’ autumn film programme at the city’s Carriageworks Theatre.



Opening tomorrow with Her (2013), Spike Jonze’s comedic fantasy starring Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams which tells the story of a man who falls in love with his phone’s operating system, this is followed on Thursday 11th September by the classic thriller Run Lola Run (1999).

Not For Rental is an exciting new cinema programme in Leeds city centre which bridges the gap for audiences between the viewing experience of Leeds Young Film Festival and Leeds International Film Festival.

The films range from British Independent productions to archive screenings, documentaries and foreign language films covering everything from comedy to horror, action to drama.



Other highlights include on Friday 31st October a special Halloween extravaganza featuring three unforgettable classics. Starring on the bill will be The Lost Boys (1987), An American Werewolf In London (1981) and The Orphanage (2007).
