Georgy Girl in Manchester

40 years after its original release, the film with arguably the most infuriatingly-catchy theme tune and the most stylish wardrobe of the 60s – Georgy Girl – returns for a rare screening at Manchester’s Cornerhouse on Sunday 23rd July. For those of you who’ve not seen the movie, Lynn Redgrave […]
