Haddenham Screen, our local village cinema club, has announced its programme for the Autumn season from September to December 2016.
The season starts with the charming comedy Florence Foster Jenkins, the true story of a wealthy New York heiress and patron of the arts who hires Carnegie hall to showcase herself as an opera singer despite her horrible singing voice.
Pictured right is the group of enthusiastic volunteers who constitute the Haddenham Screen Management Team.
Haddenham Screen has built up an impressive regular audience, who will now benefit from the new chairs with padded seats and backs that have been purchased by the Youth & Community Centre. (If you're new to the area, the Y&CC is the building located on the far East side of the Junior School building (nearest to the Medical Centre) on Woodways. The entrance to the site is directly opposite the entrance to the Recreation Ground.
The Youth centre has also had an induction loop installed for the use of those with hearing difficulties. So everyone can enjoy the films in comfort.
The Haddenham Screen programme for the next few months looks like this:
- Tuesday 13 September Florence Foster Jenkins (PG)
- Tuesday 27 September Our Kind of Traitor (15)
- Tuesday 11 October Pan's Labyrinth (15)
- Tuesday 25 October Eye in the Sky (15)
- Tuesday 8 November Trumbo (15)
- Tuesday 22 November Close Encounters of the Third Kind (PG)
- Tuesday 13 December Eddie the Eagle (PG)
Tickets may be purchased at the box office at Haddenham Community Library: £4 for members and £5 for non-members. The library is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday all day, and on Saturday mornings.
The films are shown at the Haddenham Youth & Community Centre. 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. Haddenham Screen has its own website, with 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 from Haddenham Screen go to support the Community Library.
