‘Sunset Boulevard’: change of date

Hello again Filmspotters!

A quick post today, to let you all know that due to circumstances out of our control, we have had to change the date of our upcoming ‘Sunset Boulevard’ screening. It will now take place on Saturday 29 March – the same time (7 for 7.30pm), same place (St Michael’s Community Hall, Brighton). The menu has also changed – we shall now be offering delicious pizzas to pre-order (including a vegetarian option).

As mentioned in our previous post, advance booking is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £5 advance from info@lja.uk.com or 01273 328683, or £6 on the door. The homemade pizzas are available to be booked in advance only, priced £3.50 – please indicate if you would like to purchase this when booking tickets.

Hopefully, as it is now on Saturday, more of you will be able to come along!

As a reward for your patience, here’s the full trailer for the film:

The rest of our programme is  coming together, and plans include a new initiative for a deaf group where we shall be showing last year’s blockbuster ‘Gravity’, with audio described subtitles at a Seaford venue; a day of community films to celebrate 150 years of the Seaford – Brighton train line; a weekend of World War I films for Newhaven Fort in August; and our second visit to Salisbury Museum where we shall screen films inspired by their Cecil Beaton exhibition. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!

Filmspot 2014: We’re back!

Happy New Year, Filmspotters – we’re back in the saddle after a winter break.

We’re still confirming much of our programme for 2014, but we are very pleased to be able to announced our first screening of the year – ‘Sunset Boulevard’ at St Michael’s Church Community Hall, Brighton, 21 March, 7.30pm (for 7pm). This screening will launch the Filmspot CMPCA Pop Up Cinema Club. It is planned that we will present four films a year, giving audiences the opportunity to see classics not often shown on the big screen, as well as rare or undiscovered gems.

Billy Wilder’s classic noir, Sunset Boulevardis a scathing satire of the movie industry. William Holden portrays an unsuccessful screenwriter who is sucked into a web of sleaze and insanity by a deluded, faded silent movie star, played by tour-de-force, Gloria Swanson. With caustic, bitter wit this story exposes the corruptive, devastating decline of the old Hollywood legends, after the coming of sound. Highly regarded on its release, with eleven Academy Award nominations and winning three Oscars, it is now seen a one of the greatest films of American cinema.

Here’s a clip of the inimitable Gloria Swanson, to give you are taster:

Space at this event is strictly limited, so advance booking is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £5 advance from info@lja.uk.com or 01273 328683, or £6 on the door. Special snack boxes of quiche and salad, including a vegetarian option, are available to be booked in advance only, priced £3.50 – please indicate if you would like to purchase this when booking tickets.

As well as our new Pop-Up Cinema Club with the CMPCA, we are looking forward to to other exciting new partnerships for 2014. We will be publishing details of these shortly – as well as our upcoming plans for screenings at Newhaven Fort and Salisbury Museums.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all soon, as wish you a (belated) happy New Year!
