On Saturday 3rd February, REGENT STREET CINEMA plays hosts to a unique, landmark cinematic event in partnership with BBC ARENA and Heavenly Films.
Night and Day is a completely new cinematic experience. Sourced entirely from the unique treasure trove that is the archive of Arena, the world's longest running arts documentary series. It has no beginning, no middle and no end, simply the time you choose to start watching, how long you stay watching and the time you choose to leave. Its narrative is simply that of night and day itself, edited to a precise audio visual experience of the times and date on which its screened.
The Arena archive provides an inexhaustible supply of scenes from all over the world and protagonists who range from ordinary people to some of the most famous of the past century - Mandela to McCartney, Amy Winehouse to Catherine Deneuve, Johnny Rotten to Antonioni.
Drawn exclusively from Arena's archive of over 600 films, Night and Day is edited to link the time in the film to the time in the location of the screening - if it's dawn on the screen, it’s dawn outside the cinema.
