We have an exciting new development – our first online screening event so we hope you’ll be able to join us. Filmbankmedia (film distributors) has given us the opportunity to hold a online screening. The Virtual Screening Room replicates our community cinema experience but at home, we all watch the film at the same time and are able to chat before, during and afterwards in a virtual room using text.
The film can only be watched on a laptop or a PC but you can connect your laptop/PC to a TV using a HDMI cable (easily available) to watch on a TV, the browser has to be Chrome, Edge, Safari and Firefox but not Internet Explorer. A broadband speed of over 5Mbps is needed, another device can be used for the chat facility. If you have any questions please get in touch. The link below below help if you aren’t too sure:

The film we are screening online is Falling (2020) Cert 15 on Friday 5th March at 730pm
John Peterson (Viggo Mortensen) lives a comfortable life with his husband Eric (Terry Chen) only for his life to be turned upside down when his bigoted father Willis (Lance Henriksen) starts to display symptoms of dementia. In agreement with his sister Sarah (Laura Linney), John decides to take Willis in and sell their old family farm – but Willis is a stubborn man at the best of times and he’s now increasingly resistant to change…
“Viggo Mortensen makes a sensitive and assured directing debut with Falling, a meditation on ageing, mortality and slow-drip loss that will resonate deeply with anyone going through the agonies it depicts…”
– Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
