First screening of the year started with ‘Spiderman : Homecoming’, ‘Frozen (Sing-along)’ and ‘Casablanca’. ‘Frozen (Sing-along)’ was our first sell out performance!
Change of direction in February, we screened the Oscar contender ‘The Florida Project’ and the classic ‘North by Northwest’. Being February, the month of love, we also screened the family classic ‘Lady and the Tramp’.
A great month for us, our second sell out screening thanks to the lovable Paddington in ‘Paddington 2’. Proving to be very popular wereour screenings of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘Dunkirk’.
Experimental month, as we opted to screen a National Theatre Live performance of ‘Follies’. Lots of technical challenges to overcome! We also screened ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ which exceeded our expectations, and ‘Ferdinand’.
Final screening before our Summer break. ‘Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri’ (not Epping, Essex) was a big hit with the audience, as was ‘The Greatest Showman’. The Aardman Animation ‘Early Man’ was popular with the younger, football loving, crowd.
Our performance of ‘Greatest Showman’ was also preceeded by some live music from the wonderful ‘Jan Antrobus’.
Our first screening after the Summer recess saw us screen a varied programme, consisting of ‘Ladybird’, ‘Mary and the Witch’s Flower’ and ‘Walk With Me’.
In October, we screened ‘Black Panther’, ‘Coco’ and the classic ‘Top Hat’.
