Simon Foster a trustee of the charity said “We are looking forward to welcoming people from all around the area and particularly those who may be at home with family and friends and who are not able to get out and about as often as they would like. Everyone is welcome, we hope residents are able to join us from local care homes. We have chosen “White Christmas” as easily the most popular choice of film, after consulting with those who have attended the successful cinema club in the last twelve months”
Recent films have included “Some Like It Hot” and “The Italian Job”. “The aim is to provide a safe and social environment and enjoy some nostalgia, happy memories and have a laugh” continued Simon.
The discounted entry price is just £4 per person. Please arrive between 10.30 am and 11 am when refreshments will be served.
