Try To Save Blue Mountain

The planning proposal is in to demolish and redevelop the site of Blue Mountain. The plans are well prepared and we don\'t really stand a chance against this powerful developer but we need to make a fuss to try and ensure we get the council to allow new licenses to open up other places to present the music Bristol loves. Stokes Croft is in what is called a Cumulative Impact Area which means it\'s incredibly hard to get a new license on another building. Save Bristol Nightlife campaign thinks that if we are to lose our music venues to developers like this we need assurances that new places will be allowed to open to take their place. We have lost 10,000 capacity in the last 7 years and that doesn\'t count Lakota, Coroners Court or Blue Mountain. This event page is to link people up to the planning application and to make it easy for members of the Save Bristol Nightlife community to invite their friends to comment on the application. The event date is random and there just to create the event page. Please compose your objection and submit your comment asap. ************************ Here we go kids ... planning is in to demolish and redevelop the site of The Blue Mountain. Along with the redevelopment of Lakota this is a mighty blow to the underground music scene of a city that\'s famous for its underground music scene. Sad days. Below is the link to the comments page where you can register your objection. Keep it clean and logical. The committee and the officers are not the ones who want this to happen so no need to insult the council. The developer is a big deal who doesn\'t pay their tax. We haven\'t heard anyone say that this development is a good for Bristol. They have rendered the site ugly and demolished the other club that was on the site already - that was Clockwork. They have bought and closed the print shop where promoters got their fliers and posters done. That will be demolished too. This is a huge site in our city centre/St Pauls. They have created an eyesore and will now build a student accomodation fortress in its place. The loss of jobs and footfall for other businesses in the area is an issue. Students flats in a big block like this will make a permanent no-mans-land of Moon Street, leading to the posh flats that replace Coroner\'s Court and Lakota. https://planningonline.bristol.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=PPUSGUDNH3S00 Same as with Lakota and Coroner\'s Court - Be sure to click the box to say that you are OBJECTING Prove to the council that Blue Mountain is a functioning, valuable community facility. Express the importance of it to your recreational and cultural life in Bristol. Let them know about the best experiences you\'ve had there, the friendships you\'ve made and any other points that prove its ongoing worth to the community. Explain why Blue Mountain is unique from the building itself to what it offers that other venues don\'t. How will its loss affect your ability to access and enjoy cultural, community and musical opportunities in Bristol? Emphasise that you want it to continue as a music venue. What about diversity and accessibility? Who is this corner of St Pauls for and who is welcome here? These developments are pushing out the people who work here and who frequent these streets. This area has ALWAYS BEEN COMMUNITY AND JOBS LAND and I mean since the year dot. It\'s been schools, shops, light industrial and pubs. Before that it was home to circus. before that it was a farm. Back off with your ugly high buildings with your token bike sheds and pizza takeaways. We\'ve got Slix and Rita\'s we don\'t need no more :-) Tell them that the loss in independent venues in Bristol is gross and that our music venues need to be replaced. With all the new developments all over the city there\'s not a pub or a social space or bar or nightclub anywhere on any plans. Tell them that every community has a right to places to gather and socialise. Tell them there\'s already too much student accommodation and that it is creeping into streets that are home to Bristol music and culture and turning our streets into dead zones. Demand that our music venues are protected and if they are redeveloped they should be replaced! Request that the application is refused. We will set up an events page so you can invite your friends to object. No more development on top of our music venues! Further information over the next few days and weeks.

Uneven Structure + Schiermann, Bearpit & Dan Robins At Exchange

French technical powerhouse Uneven Structure headline Exchange this summer. Uneven Structure announced their arrival with the release of debut album \'Februus\' (Basick Records) in late 2011, along with tours alongside the like of Protest The Hero, TesseracT and Textures, simultaneously receiving acclaim for both their live and recorded capabilities. Sophomore record \'La Partition\' followed in 2017. Complex and catchy in equal measure, \'La Partition\' is a perfect combination of the hardness of metal, the elaborate techniques of prog and the atmospheric sounds of ambient. Now, Uneven Structure announce their return to live duties as they gear up to release their upcoming third record this summer. Joining them is Chris Schiermann\'s solo project; Schiermann. His debut is a journey of adventurous and infectious melodies and intelligent grooves topped off with a large dose of virtuoso lead work. BEARPIT make a welcome return following their excellent set with Lotus Eater and Dan Robins - Guitarist will kick-off things of with his guitar shred wizardry.

The Matrix (20th Anniversary)

Dirs: Lilly and Lana Wachowski, USA, 1999, 136 mins, Cert: 15 Sun 15 September // 19:00 Tickets: 5 (full) / 4 (concession) / 3 (for World on Wire ticket holders) A spectacular surprise when it arrived in cinemas seemingly out of nowhere back in 1999, directors Lana and Lilly Wachowskis game changing blockbuster is a thrilling action-filled ride, a special effects revolution and a provocative trip across multiple plains of being and consciousness. Keanu Reevess cubicle drone/hacker Neo gets a rude awakening, discovering that the real world he knows is a shared hallucination and that humankind are being harvested for bioelectricity by their machine overlords. A watershed movie, not only for the popularization of Hong Kong wire fu fighting techniques imported by choreographer Yuen Woo-ping, but for the flexible red pill and blue pill metaphor it introduced, adopted by paranoiacs of all political affiliations. Tickets for this screening are just 3 for those who also come along to our 2pm screening of Fassbinder\'s WORLD ON A WIRE

World On A Wire

WORLD ON A WIRE (Welt am draht) Dir: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1973, Germany, 212 mins, Cert: 15 (advised) Sun 15 September // 14:00 Tickets: 8 (full price) /6 (concession) World on a Wire is a gloriously paranoid, boundlessly inventive take on the future from German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Originally made for German television, this recently rediscovered, three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the world of tomorrow from one of cinemas kinkiest geniuses. With dashes of Stanley Kubrick, Kurt Vonnegut, and Philip K. Dick, Fassbinder tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant hero Fred Stiller (Klaus Lwitsch), a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate conspiracy. Simulacron 1 is a highly advanced project, designed to elevate conventional computer technology to a new level by creating a virtual reality inhabited by computer-generated people or \'identity units\'. When the head of the project dies mysteriously after showing signs of mental disturbance, Dr Stiller becomes his successor. As he begins to probe deeper into Simulacron, the line between the real and virtual world becomes increasingly blurred and his own existence is questioned. World on a Wire is an extraordinary workprescient, fluid, eccentric, and as wildly compelling as any of Fassbinders other masterworks. Made a quarter-century before The Matrix (1999), which touches on similar issues and screens later this evening. Ticket holders for World on a Wire can see The Matrix for just 3

Bait

Dir: Mark Jenkin, UK, 89 mins, Cert: 15 Mon 16 September // 20:00 Tue 17 September // 20:00 Tickets: 5 (full) / 4 (concession) Wed 18 September // 11:00 (baby cinema 3) Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkins Bait is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a community facing up unwelcome change. Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother Steven has re-purposed their fathers vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between the brothers. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbour. As his struggle to restore the family to their traditional place creates increasing friction with tourists and locals alike, a tragedy at the heart of the family changes his world. From writer/director Mark Jenkin and Early Day Films, Bait is a hand crafted monochrome expression of a life under threat. Mark Jenkins film about two fishermen coping with the influx of sightseers is intriguing for its distinct visual style...he has contributed one of the most arrestingly strange movies in Berlin this year.
