Sensoria is taking over the mini-cinema in the Picture House Social for a weekend of specially curated content, featuring: films, documentaries, music videos and more that will span the entire weekend of Tramlines Festival.

Musically, the Friday will be curated by Sheffield garage-rockers Seize the Chair and features the likes of Pulled Apart by Horses and TRAAMS. The Saturday is curated by Kid Acne and features artists such as Ragga Twins and Scor-say-zee. Whilst the Sunday, curated by Loud & Quiet / Katzenjammer, sees acts such as Mugstar, Tomaga and Virginia Wing play. A heap of guest DJ’s will also be playing records throughout the weekend.  

Nb admittance to the cinema area is over 18s only. Also, there are 24 seats – available on a first come, first served basis. 

Here’s what we have lined up in the cinema: 



7.30pm 2 WEEKS 2 MAKE IT WINNERS (15mins)

The winner and 2 runner up videos from Sheffield’s own music video competition.

8.15pm RADAR PRESENTS (30mins)

Pick of the crop of recent videos curated Radar Music Videos.


Perceived as shocking and outrageous when originally released in 1981, Penelope Spheeris’ The Decline Of Western Civilization exposes the LA punk scene at the time. Features Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper and more. We’re delighted to present a rare screening in advance of the blu-ray box set release in August.


10.45pm EASY RIDER (1hr 35mins)

60s road movie following two counter-cultural, drug-fueled, Harley Davidson bikers through the American Southwest. Their trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans takes them through limitless, untouched landscapes, various towns, a hippie commune and also through areas of hateful, narrow-minded local residents. Soundtrack includes The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf and many more. The promo poster claimed “A man went looking for America and couldn’t find it anywhere.”





Aired as part of the BBC Arena series in 1984, an exploration of hip-hop culture in New York City. The film features DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa,  The Cold Crush Brothers, Jazzy Jay, Globe, The Dynamic Rockers and producer Arthur Baker. Directed by Dick Fontaine and thought to be the first hip hop film shown in the UK. 

5.30pm BOMBIN’ (1hr)

Sequel to Fontaine’s 1984 doc “Beat This!”, first broadcast in 1987 on Channel 4. Bombin’ takes a look at how American hip-hop culture was making its way over the pond to the UK, this time exploring graffiti and tagging subcultures.

The documentary offers a fascinating look at 1980’s UK hip-hop and graffiti culture and includes 3D and Goldie tagging in Birmingham. 


6.30pm STREET ART 1989 (30mins)

BBC documentary from the 1989 international street art competition in Bridlington.

7.30pm 80 BLOCKS FROM TIFFANY’S TBC (1hr 7mins)

1979 documentary depicting the daily life of gangs in the South Bronx, primarily the “Savage Skulls” and the “Savage Nomads”. The South Bronx was known for many social issues such as high unemployment, prostitution and drug and alcohol abuse. The name obviously references the distance between the exclusive Tiffany’s jewelry store, in Manhattan and the South Bronx.




Cauliflower Trip

5.30pm PSYCH VIDS (30mins) 

A selection of trippy videos and a chilled out start to the final Neighbourhood day.

6.45pm THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON  (1hr 50mins).

Chronicling the life of the genius, manic depressive musician and artist.


9.30pm THE HOLY MOUNTAIN  (1hr 54mins)

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s psychedelic, dazzling, rambling, social commentary with a great score and chock full of both symbolism and nudity! Not for the faint hearted.

Full details of the weekend, including all the bands and DJs playing, can be found below.
