Certificate 15.  Running time: 1h 45min.  Doors open at 7pm

When life knocks you down, stand up!

Funny Cow charts the rise to stardom of a female comedian through the 1970s and 1980s. It is set against the backdrop of working men’s clubs and the stand-up comedy circuit of the North of England.

From her troubled childhood to her turbulent adult relationships, the Funny Cow uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage. A stand-up comedienne in an all-male world, Funny Cow delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure.

Maxine Peake plays the role of Funny Cow with Tony Pitts as her violent soul mate Bob, Paddy Considine acts as her middle class lover Angus, and Stephen Graham plays her father, as well as her brother Mike.

A 15 certificate means… “Suitable only for 15 years and over. No one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in a cinema” – British Board of Film Classification

Films at the Goods Shed are projected on to a six-metre (19 feet 8 inches) wide screen, with sound provided by a multipoint Dolby system. The 180 seats are purpose-made for auditorium use and are tiered, giving everyone a comfortable and unobstructed view of the screen.

We provide a bar at most screenings, offering alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Doors open 30 minutes before each screening.

You can buy tickets in advance using the form below, or on the door up to 30 minutes before screening, subject to availability. There is no fee for booking online.

At this stage, it isn’t possible to reserve specific seats. If you have a favourite spot, it’s best to arrive early, get a drink, and settle in to enjoy the movie!
