Dear audience members, visitors and friends,
We have kept up with information from health services and film club organisations, and it has become clear we will have to close for an indefinite and extended period.
We are stopping our screenings straight away, so the rest of the films we had advertised are cancelled, including this coming Friday, 20th March, through April.
Attendance to the film club has been very good for several months, which has helped us hugely to keep going, and alternate popular movies with less familiar films.
It’s sad to have to take a long break from our regular screenings, as we always enjoy talking about the films, hearing your opinions, and gaining your own knowledge and wisdom during the discussions raised by any thought-provoking film.
While it is not quite the same, in a time that many of us may have to remain in isolation, I know people can continue to watch some fantastic films at home.
We will do what we can to spread the word and make sure as many people as possible know that we will no longer be open at our venue on Friday evenings.
Similarly, once we know we can start our screenings again, we will be in contact to inform you in time, and hope to see you then.
Once we do re-open, we do plan to show the same films we were looking forward to:
