The top three films will be showcased in the Private Screening Room at Everyman and tickets can be collected at Trinity Leeds Customer Service Lounge from 9am on the day on a first come, first served basis.


Blue Monday falls on the third Monday of January and is supposedly the most depressing day of the year, taking into account the wintery weather, amount of time since Christmas and New Year festivities, along with low motivational levels and realisation of debt.


David Maddison, General Manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “We always strive to make a trip to Trinity Leeds as enjoyable as possible for visitors, so we wanted to do a little something to brighten up everyone’s spirits this Blue Monday – that’s why we are hosting free ‘feel good’ films at Leeds’ only luxury cinema.


“We were keen to let the public decide on the films that cheer them up the most and believe the three films chosen will do just that. We look forward to welcoming the public this Monday and hope everyone enjoys the films and beats the Monday blues.”
