Crocuses carpeting lawns, daffodils bobbing in the sun, March winds blowing a bit of a gale…spring has sprung and along with it hope of a return to our many much-loved activities that have been denied us for more or less a whole year.
As I write this , it was in fact a year ago to the day that we had our last screening – Road To Perdition- little knowing the irony of that title!
We should have a clearer idea by the Easter whether the June 21st date for lifting all restrictions is a viable date. We should also all have received our Covid19 vaccinations too. With this in mind, I am tentatively pencilling in
FRIDAY 9TH JULY 2021
as the grand re-opening of Chilworth Community Cinema! We will be screening Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood starring Tom Hanks and Maryann Plunkett.
This of course is dependant on a number of factors:
- The village Hall being allowed to open its doors
- GBC issuing entertainment and alcohol licences
- Music and film licences being made available
- Sourcing the DVD itself!
We will comply with all restrictions which may apply at the time (possibly wearing face masks?).
So it is with great hope and optimism that I close, expecting the next missive to contain all necessary information for attending an evening at the cinema and hoping that you will all flock back in droves!
In the meantime keep on keeping safe.
Kindest regards, Diane Kenny
on behalf of Chilworth Community Cinema
