Film Friday: A Clockwork Orange (exhibition)


Just thought I'd tie in this week's film post with a few photos taken last weekend on a trip to Manchester. There is currently an exhibition to celebrate 50 years of A Clockwork Orange being held at the John Rylands Library in Deansgate. If you live in Manchester and have never been, you must! The building is really beautiful inside and out. The exhibition was also worth a visit if you are a fan of the classic film. Anthony Burgess, who wrote the book hails from Manchester originally. On display at the exhibition are letters between the author and Stanley Kubrick, memorabilia from the film and even Burgess's old typewriter. There are also newspaper articles documenting the controversial nature of the film, which was banned from being shown in Britain for 27 years.
