The first festival at Smithdown Road newest cinema venue has been announced.

Hammer and Nail is a pop-up event being screened in the former Handyman Supermarket next month ahead of the microwbrewery鈥檚 official opening.

Organised by Empty Spaces Cinema, the festival has a distincy DIY theme in keping with the venue鈥檚 previous life as one of the city鈥檚 go-to stores for carpenters, plumbers, decorators and the like.

Three films will be screened, the first being Withnail & I , the cult comedy starring the city鈥檚 own Paul McGann on Saturday, May 6 at 7.30pm.

At 2pm on Sunday, May 7, a screening of Disney鈥檚 Wreck-It Ralph is preceded by some family-friendly activities at 2pm before the film itself is screened at 3pm.

Things take a scarier turn at 6pm when the Hammer Horror classic The Hound of the Baskervilles, starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, rounds off the festival.

Empty Spaces is a group made up of volunteers from Liverpool Small Cinema, looking to open pop-up events in unusual locations throughout Merseyside.

Christopher Brown of Empty Spaces said: 鈥淲e鈥檝e picked three films that reflect such an unusual space.

鈥淲ell before the DIY store was there it was a 300 seat cinema back in 1911, called the Sefton Park Picturedrome.

鈥淚t鈥檚 a fantastic fit and a lovely space so these movies will offer a unique experience in one of south Liverpool鈥檚 most recognisable buildings.?/p>

All tickets are £5 (£4 concessions) with money raised from the sales helping to pay for more pop-up events.

The Handyman Supermarket is at 461 Smithdown Road. Cinema screenings in the back room can seat up to 50 people.

Tickets can be booked online here.
