Summer break 2014 and information on next season


Hi all,

As it is our custom, we'll be taking a Summer break after our Leytonstone Festival event in July and therefore there will be no film screening in August from us.

We have also some other important news to announce.

Due to the upcoming refurbishment of the Leytonstone Library, unfortunately the whole building will be closed for the next few months and therefore our usual venue, the library hall, will not be available to us or anyone else from September 15th (still a provisional date as of today) and until the refurbishment is complete.

It is for this reason that we are actively looking for alternative venues within the area in which we could do our monthly film screenings.

We're open to ideas and suggestions, but some initial preconditions would be that, ideally, the venue

  • would be free of charge to us for hosting our events (or as close to zero cost as possible, as our other running costs – film screening licenses, etc – are already pretty high for us)
  • would hold a capacity of between 20 to 40+ people – ideally seating.
  • would offer some secure storage space for storing our portable-but-sizeable screening equipment (if this were to become a venue in which we could hold regular events rather than a one-off, this fact would help us a lot too).

In return we could offer some free exposure for the venue in our website and to our ever expanding audiences in our newsletters and social media spaces (subject to review of material provided, etc), which we believe could work very well to cross-promoting our mutual activities and continue supporting our contributions to our local community.

Finally, we're also working on a new programme of films for our next season. We already have a great selection of titles to choose from which suggests this will be another cracker year for us; more of which will be announced here shortly. Also, we should mention again that we're always very keen on having new people around to join us and volunteer to help us running the pop-up cinema on an ongoing and committed way. If this sounds like you, please give us a shout or pop along to any of our screenings.

Thank you all for your understanding, and best regards.
