'Inside The Smiths' includes contributions from original Smiths snapper Stephen Wright, and in depth interviews with the former Smiths as well as musician friends and fans such as New Order's Peter Hook, The Fall's Mark E Smith and Buzzcocks' Pete Shelley.

The Manchester screening is still taking place at TV21, Thomas Street on July 15.
