Film Nights at Lurgashall Village Hall suspended for the time being

The best laid plans…….

We were looking forward to welcoming you all back to our monthly Film Nights, starting in October; but due to the recent changes in the coronavirus situation, and now the November ‘lockdown’, we feel it is wise to postpone Film Nights for the time being.

Until we can all get together again for an engrossing film, a good chat and an interval ice cream, we would like to invite Lurgashall residents to borrow any of the DVDs or  Blu-rays of films we have shown, or were about to show, to watch at home.

If you’d like to see the list or borrow a DVD/Blu-ray, please contact Sarah  on  admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org

Film Night will be back in October

After a summer break – and now that the Village Hall is once again open for business (with all necessary covid-related precautions) – we are looking forward to welcoming you all back to our monthly Film Nights, starting on Wednesday 7th October.

We will kick off the return of Film Night with The Good Liar – postponed from April when we all went into lockdown.

Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from a novel by Nicholas Searle, The Good Liar is at its sparky best when stars Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen are on screen, waltzing smoothly through a plot that feels like a Russian doll of deeper and deeper deceptions.

More about the plot in next month’s issue, but meanwhile, please put 7th October in your diaries.

Note:  Seating will be spaced to observe the 2m distancing rule.  There will be hand sanitiser to use on entry.  We request that face coverings are worn.  Most importantly, please do NOT attend if you are anyone you know has symptoms of the virus.

Doors open at 7.00pm                     Film starts at 7.30pm

Admission: £5.00                              Cash Bar, Interval Ice Creams

 

Film Night – “Judy” – Wed. 4 March 2020

Judy poster

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.

Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

Starring Oscar and BAFTAwinning Renée Zellweger, BAFTAnominated Jessie BuckleyRufus Sewell and Michael Gambon.

 

Doors open at 7.00pm      Film starts at 7.30pm

Admission: £5.00              Cash Bar, Interval Ice Creams
