Summerhall Festival to beam into 30 cinemas UK-wide with Hibrow

HIBROW HOUR AT THE ODEON – THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE IS COMING TO A BIG SCREEN NEAR YOU

Hibrow, the digital arts pioneers, will join forces with big screen giants, ODEON, to take the world’s biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, out of its cobbled confines and into a cinema near you with a series of special screenings throughout August.

Hibrow Hour, generously supported by Arts Council England, is a series of daily performances at Summerhall, throughout this year’s Fringe. Book tickets for the live events.

Rupert Thompson, Artistic Director at Summerhall commented:
“We are delighted that Summerhall will be hosting this live cinematic fringe first – beaming the festival to audiences across the UK. We are immensely proud of the programme of festival events this year – and delighted to be working with theatre innovators Hibrow on this project.”

Eight of these new shows, spanning theatre, comedy, opera and visual art, have been specially designed to be transmitted via satellite to selected ODEON Cinemas nationwide. Hibrow Hour represents an exciting new digital frontier for the legendary festival: three brand new plays by young theatre-makers, an opera from an internationally recognised artist/filmmaker, comedy acts curated by two of Britain’s most celebrated comedy producers, and a show from the inimitable Steven Berkoff who epitomises the Festivals dedication to talent and innovation. All designed to bring to cinema audiences the excitement of the festival. Each 90 minute programme will also include exclusive coverage of the Festival at large in a specially produced featurette.
