Lottery grant kickstarts community cinema's new season
A COMMUNITY art house style cinema has been awarded a £10,000 Lottery grant for its new season.
Great Missenden’s Blue Door Cinema started last September after a group of residents wanted to provide more things to do in the village.
It has proved popular and the Lottery grant money has bought a projector and surround sound system, where previously they hired this equipment.
Cinema co-founder Katy Barrett said: "We heard back in July that our application to the Awards for All community fund had been successful. With the £10,000 grant we’ve been given, we can get our own projector, sound system and screen and that will make a huge difference to our long-term running costs".
Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugarman will be the first film of the season at 8pm on Saturday, September 28 in the Great Missenden Memorial Centre.
Roald Dahl’s Matilda will be the first children’s film in the new Saturday matinee 3pm slot.
Other highlights include the acclaimed Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon and sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey Popcorn will be served at all the children’s movies, which will also include Star Wars, The Secret of Kells, Hugo, My Neighbour Totoro and The Princess Bride.
Tickets can be bought in advance from Samways Newsagents in Great Missenden. For full details of the new season visit Blue Door’s website (www.bluedoorcinema.org)/or facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
