North West Film Archive presents

The Boys in Blue - Manchester City FC on Film

To mark the club's 125th anniversary, the North West Film Archive presents another chance to see this unique and popular show that uses archive film to look back at City's Maine Road years.

 Dr Gary James, author and Manchester football historian, curates an evening of films about the history of Manchester City FC selected from footage preserved at the NWFA. From the legendary Billy Meredith through to Maine Road's final match, amazing archive material is brought to life by Gary's unrivalled knowledge of City's history. Rare interviews with chairmen, managers and players combine with the sounds of the Kippax for this great show that includes some extra footage of the old Hyde Road ground and City's first match at Maine Road (courtesy of the British Film Institute).  Don't miss out! 

 The North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University is part of the Archives+ partnership, an exciting showcase and repository for archives and family history situated in Manchester Central Library.
