A great weekend in Salisbury – and launching a new community cinema in Alfriston

Phew – We’re just back from a fantastic time in Salisbury, where we ran a screening of ‘The Great White Silence‘ at Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum on Saturday. More on that below, but first of all, we want to let you all know about our next event. We are very excited to be working with The Coach House Gallery in Alfriston to launch Deckchair Cinema – a new venture bringing art house and world cinema to Alfriston.

Our inaugural Deckchair Cinema event will be on Saturday 20 October, 6pm (for a 6.30pm start). We are presenting GOODBYE LENIN [2003], in association with and supporting the Seaford Twinning Association and the German Conversation Group. We will be showing the film in original German, with English subtitles.

This heart-warming tragicomedy, set in 1989, tells the story of a son who lovingly dupes his socialist mother, recently awoken from a coma, into believing that  Lenin really did win after all!
 
 Location: The Coach House, High St. Alfriston BN26 5TD. Parking: Willows Car Park: Free from 6pm
Here’s a clip, to whet your appetite!
TICKETS: £7 each, levied against licensing and including, a seat, a drink and German canapes – non language speakers also welcomed. Advance booking is recommended – please email deckchaircinema@rocketmail.com with your name and number or call 01323 871402
Back to Salisbury!

We had a great time in this picturesque city, and received some great feedback from the audience, including:
‘Very moving, thank you’
‘Excellent – loved the soundtrack’
‘Superb. My eight year old son and 76 year old father were equally entranced’

Thank you to all of you who came along – and also to those of you who noted down some suggestions for future screenings.
