We mark the 200th anniversary of the infamous massacre with a screening of Mike Leigh’s Peterloo.  A peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter's Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history but also a defining moment in British democracy. Dir: Mike Leigh, 2018, 12A, 154 mins.
