Summer holiday family film shows were a new departure for Fulbourn Cinema but they are proving well worth doing. On 4 August we showed Paddington to an audience of 35 children and parents. Whether people had seen the film before or it was their first time didn’t seem to matter – everyone seemed glued to the screen throughout. Of course, it’s one of those films that works on two levels, with sly humour provided for the adults as well as the more obvious bits for the children.
For our second show on 25 August we screened Raya and The Last Dragon, a very recent Disney animation, with an audience of 45. The dialogue and plot line were maybe more suitable for the older kids but everyone seemed to enjoy it, with lots of ‘Oohs!’ and ‘Aahs!’ at the exciting bits. One young man was heard to announce proudly that this was the fifth time he’d seen it.
We had learnt from the first show that free soft drinks and snacks throughout the show was perhaps not the wisest strategy, so all children were given raffle tickets for one free drink and one snack. Everyone seemed happy with that so we will do the same for future shows.
The Cinema organising group reserve the Townley Memorial Hall for regular film nights. Doors open at 7.30 pm and shows commence at 7.45 pm.
Certifications are shown where we have been able to establish them. Please take them into account when deciding whether or not to bring young children with you.
Hope to see you there!
