‘Save the David Lean Cinema’ campaign

2 years since this independent cinema was closed down, a campaign is trying to revive it by running a pop-up cinema at the Spreadeagle pub in Croydon near the Clocktower where the cinema was based. They are also holding an event near Beckenham/West Wickham, in Shirley, that you might like to go to. Saturday 15 June at 7.30pm (doors open at 7.15pm) at Shirley Community Centre Shrublands Avenue, Shirley, CR0 8JA. A SUNDAY IN THE COUNTRY 1984 90 mins (16mm film presentation: French drama with English subtitles). Directed by Bertrand Tavernier and nominated for Golden Globe and BAFTA awards (Best Foreign Film). “It’s rare that a film so pictorially gorgeous is so tender, wise and humane.” (SCS is at the top of Bridle Road. 194 and 198 buses stop nearby, at the Goat pub. Parking is available in the area.) To be added to the Campaign mailing list, email: savedavidlean@gmail.com. Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/LeanCampaign . Twitter: @SaveDavidLean

University College London are researching cinema-going in the 1960s and would like to collect some research. They are interested in the ways in which people remember cinema-going, films and the decade itself. If you’re too young to remember the 60s please fwd this to someone who does!

The questionnaire that forms the basis of the project is here  http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cinemamemories. It can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Contribute your memories’ link and more directly by visiting http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cinemamemories/questionnaire-links/. The questionnaire can be completed online, but it can also be downloaded, printed and returned by post. They are also able to send out printed copies and freepost envelopes in which to return them, if you prefer this option, please email: cinemamemories@ucl.ac.uk  Telephone: 020 7679 7960 By Post: Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s, Department of History, UCL, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT

Melodrama in ‘Les Miserables’!

We’ve just released some great stalls seats for ‘Les Misérables’ (Cert 12A, 158 mins) on Thursday 16 May in the main hall (aka Bromley Hall) – so do book now (as seating is allocated and you can enjoy our refreshments safe in the knowledge that your seats are reserved for you). The side circle seats here also afford a very good view (we’ve withheld any side stalls seats that have a restricted view).

Members pay £3.50 for up to two seats and non-members pay £7 per seat – still great value for a superb new cinema venue – a social cinema club with added extras!

Our refreshments are available from 6.30pm and the programme itself starts at 7.30pm, with an exclusive LIVE vocal overture (approx. 12 mins), an ice cream break and a brief intro to the film (and a free programme). The film should start just before 8pm and the evening should finish by 10.35/.40pm – there will be no interval. We sell delicious Kent Crisps and a great range of bottled fruit juices from Chegworth Valley, also in Kent. Teas and coffees are also now available. We stock the delicious Simply ice cream, produced locally in Ashford in Kent – http://www.simplyicecream.co.uk – patrons have been known to come to blows over the last Honeycomb Crunch… but vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and mint chocolate are great too!

Children under 16 years are welcome (as appropriate to the 12A certificate), if seated with and accompanied by an adult. BUT please do bear in mind the late finish. FREE parking is available outside the venue – please email us at LangleyFilmbox@gmail.com to enquire about access requests – both our stalls and circle are accessible by wheelchair and we have a lift.

Book now at: http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/filmboxcommunitycinema
