New Local Cinema Club For Ealing
No movie house? - No problem!
A group of residents fed up at the lack of a cinema in Ealing have set up their own.
The members of St Barnabas Church in North Ealing have formed Pitshanger Pictures aiming to show films on a monthly basis which will 'stimulate conversation and discussion'.
They will be screened in the St Barnabas Millenium Hall and in contrast with the drab multiplex experience, ticket prices include drinks, nibbles and conversation afterwards.
Hilary Nicholl, Pitshanger Pictures team member says:
"We were fed up with the lack of local cinema, so rather than moan about it we decided to create our own. We were thrilled with how many people came to our first event, which showed that many people locally felt the same craving as we did - a desire to see interesting films in a pleasant environment. We are excited about our future events, and hope other local people will be too".
The group launched on 16th January with a group of local children and parents thoroughly enjoying the classic cream-gun fest that is Bugsy Malone .
Later that day Moon and District 9 were shown, with lively discussion after both.
Those die-hard movie buffs who braved both films in a night were even served pizza between films.
The group have further showings scheduled for February 13th, March 13th and May 22nd.
The films on February 13th include two classics which deserve to be rediscovered - Disney's Bambi at 3 pm and the 1960 classic A Bout de Souffle (Breathless) at 6:45 pm.
Bookings are not necessary, though those who want more information or to join the mailing list can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Afternoon ticket prices are £3.50 per child and £5.00 per adult (to include juice or coffee and popcorn) and evening showings are £7.50 (to include wine and nibbles)
