Banksy movie to screen at Watershed in Bristol

Street artist Banksy makes his film debut!

Banksy's new film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, will be shown at the Watershed in March.

The official list of cinemas showing the Bristol graffiti artist's first foray into the film world revealed where fans can see the production.

It was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah earlier this year.

It will also be screen in Bath at the Little Theatre and will also show in Cardiff at the Cineworld as well as various screenings in London.

The film, which features Welsh film star Rhys Ifans narrating and music by Bristolians Roni Size and Geoff Barrow, opens on 5 March.

The movie has been billed as "the world's first street art disaster movie".

Banksy's last project was the hugely successful exhibition in his hometown in summer 2009.

The film will be the first time the anonymous artist has ever spoken on camera although his voice will be electronically disguised.

The film is named after one of the pieces at that exhibition which saw many hundreds of thousands queue around the block at Bristol Museum.

Across the country the film will show in Brighton, Cambridge, Oxford, Norwich, Southampton, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham.

It will also be screened in Liverpool, York, Newcastle, Belfast, Leeds, Exeter, Aberdeen and Glasgow as well as Dublin in the Irish Republic.
