If you’re tired of unoriginal blockbusters and mainstream multiplexes, head to Drift this March for a more unique cinematic experience. Drift seeks to provide a platform for local rising artists, film-makers and musicians, with a special pop-up cinema event seeking residence in the unique space of the Northern Quarter’s hidden gem Central Methodist Hall. To coincide with David Bowie’s return, Drift’s first outing presents Nicola Roeg’s cult 1970s film The Man Who Fell To Earth, starring the iconic musician as a humanoid alien sent to Earth on a mission to bring water back to his home planet. Also on display will be a selection of works from local illustrators and artists, while Hoya Hoya resident DJ Jon K and Now Wave headliners Kult Country will be hitting the decks to see out the festivities. All this, and it still costs less than half the price of your average multiplex ticket.

Fri 1 Mar, Central Methodist Hall, Central Buildings, Oldham Street, M1 1JQ, Tel: 0161 236 1185, 7pm – 12am, £3 adv, http://www.skiddle.com
