Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal
26th-29th October daily 1pm and 7pm £5

Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal

No soppy, over-financed, Hollywood crawling, Arnie-licking, special effects-relying rubbish for The Black Lion's new role as Salford's must-see movie house. No way. The Black Lion upstairs is putting on independent films that Salford people would never get the chance to watch – beyond the reach of even the Precinct's snide DVDs…

First up, tomorrow night – Tuesday 18th October at 7pm – is Just Do It: A Tale of Modern Day Outlaws in which film maker Emily James gets access to the secretive world environmental activists involved in direct action. The documentary claims to lift the lid on climate activists who have become `modern day outlaws' and follows them as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks. Sound good?

"The film is a story of people standing up for what they believe in and making themselves heard" states the spiel "But it was a story that needed to be told without the creative constraints of traditional production models or the editorial control of big investors. And so it was that Just Do It – the totally independent project – was born." And now shown in a totally independent cinema…

Next up is another film, perfect for the Black Lion. It's Naomi Smyth's Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal – another alternative documentary, this time on the Banksy-esque Bristol Arts Collective, a secretive collective that take over derelict shops, warehouses and even cathedrals, converting them into weird performance spaces.

Four years in the making, Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal is a study in D-I-Y cultural regeneration. Hopefully it will inspire Salford people no end…

Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal is on at The Black Lion 26-29th October with daily showings at 1pm and 7pm, plus, on Friday 28th at 7pm a screening and Q&A with director Naomi Smyth. The film is also showing on Saturday 29th October at 3pm. £5 entrance

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Star date: 17th April 2018

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
