The Roses Theatre’s Youth Programming team, known as Hatch, have integrated a strand of bold, provocative and innovative cinema in to the upcoming season, and to sweeten the deal the arts centre has introduced an exclusive Under 26 ticket price for all the films in their programme: £5 for 2D films and £7 for 3D

Hatch is a newly formed group of students who devise and implement innovative projects which engage specifically with young people. Their recent endeavours include open mic nights and the hugely successful Blockbuster Week, during which they collaborated with The Roses’ Take Part team and professional artists to create five days of theatre and film based activities.

This season of Hatch Present examines the effects of film, celebrity and overly protective parenting on impressionable young people. All screenings will be introduced by a Hatch representative and followed by an informal discussion, allowing members to share their passion for film and to ignite this enthusiasm in potential cinema aficionados.

Kicking off Hatch Present is Amy (Mon 28 Sept, 7.30pm), Asif Kapadia’s moving portrait constructed entirely from archive footage, much of it previously unseen, tracing Amy Winehouse’s rapid rise to fame and the sad downward spiral. Hatch will be welcoming people into the newly opened Roses with an acapella Amy tribute before the film.

Later in the season, they present The Wolfpack (Sun 1 Nov, 5pm), an astonishing documentary that watches six brothers grow up in the confines of a New York apartment which they have seldom left due to an overprotective Father, and La Famille Bélier (Tues 10 Nov, 7.30pm), a boisterous, heart-warming comedy about a young girl who is an interpreter for her deaf-mute family and is given the opportunity to join an elite choir in Paris, causing a rift in the family. Also included in Hatch Present will be: Me And Earl And The Dying Girl (Tues 13 Oct, 7.30pm), The Wonders (Mon 19 Oct, 7.30pm) and Paper Planes (Mon 26 Oct, 2.30pm).

This selection can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates refreshingly original independent film, but thanks to the discounted ticket price for those under 26, young people especially need not miss out.

Tickets can be purchased via Box Office on 01684 295074 or online at Prior to Thurs 24 September tickets can be bought in person at The Roses’ Charity Shop in Tewkesbury, after this date they can be bought at the theatre.
