A very glamorous weekend… in Eastbourne!

Team Filmspot had a brilliant time last weekend at the International Lawn Tennis Centre in Eastbourne. Thank you to all who came along – we hope you enjoyed the events!

We kicked off our weekend with a walk on the noir side, with Billy Wilder’s classic Sunset Boulevard.

On Saturday afternoon, we all had a great time, bringing a bit of technicolor fun to the Tennis Centre, with ‘Singin’ in the Rain’! (all photographs of our ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ event are by our wonderful roving photographer, Lukas Rohulan!)

Luckily, there was no rain to sing in... but that didn't stop us donning our rain macs and grabbing our brollies!

It was great fun, it was lovely to meet so many film fans of all ages. We look forward to coming back, soon!

For all of you in Eastbourne who are looking for some more cinematic shenanigans, we have helped facilitate a drive in screening of ‘The Italian Job’ on Saturday 4th May, on Eastbourne seafront. Details can be found on the Eastbourne Borough Council website here

For our next full Filmspot event, we are returning to Newhaven Fort for a screening of ‘Dam Busters’ on 16 May. This is a free screening as part of Museums at Night, and it celebrates the 70th anniversary of the famous raid. More details on that soon!
