Haddenham Screen, our local village cinema club, has announced its programme for the Summer season from April to July 2017.
The season starts with the true-life drama Sully (12a) to be screened on 25th April. This is the story of the airliner which had to make a forced landing on the Hudson River in 2009 when it flew into a flock of Canada geese and lost both its engines. The film covers the incident itself and its aftermath. It is said by those who know, that it is a very accurate, and dramatic, portrayal of how such an emergency is dealt with. The film stars Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley Sullenburger who successfully landed the plane and saved the lives of all 155 on board.
Take advantage of the close proximity of our community cinema (based in the Youth & Community Centre, next to the junior school on Woodways) and its cheap prices to see some great recent movies as well as the occasional classic and some you may not have come across.
The Haddenham Screen programme for the next few months looks like this:
- Tuesday 25 April Sully (12A)
- Tuesday 9 May A Street Cat Named Bob (12 A)
- Tuesday 23 May La La Land (12A)
- Tuesday 13 June Wetherby (15)
- Tuesday 27 June Lion (PG)
- Tuesday 11 July Toni Erdmann (15)
- Tuesday 25 July Swallows and Amazons (PG)
Tickets may be purchased at the box office at Haddenham Community Library — £4 for members/children and £5 for non-members. The library is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday all day and on Saturday mornings.
The usual show time is 8.00pm, with doors opening at 7.30pm, but do check your tickets for any variations.
Refreshments are available at all shows. Visit the website for details of each film, including video trailers, and other information about the club and cinema. There are also facilities for purchasing tickets and memberships online.
The community cinema is non-profitmaking and proceeds after costs go to support the Community Library.
