Warcop Remote Cinema Needs YOU!

After 8 years, Susan Coffer is standing down as Coordinator of our monthly Remote Cinema at Warcop. We need a volunteer to take this role on so that the much-liked cinema can continue. If you feel you might be able to help, with the assistance of many volunteers, please see this link to an advertisement with further information about the role:

Dear Cinema-goer

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the festive break.

The first screening of 2024 is on Thursday 18 January and is a heart-warming story starring Tom Hanks. Based on the best-selling book of the same title, A Man Called Otto is a tale of self-transformation. Otto is enraged by a world and hardened by grief and so begins to plot his own demise. But, his plan is foiled when a lively young family bursts into his life.

I can now confirm the screenings for the spring season, which are as follows. Please click on the link to open the poster for each film:

15 February – The Whale – starring Brendan Fraser

Idaho, 2016. Scarred by the profound wounds of grief and guilt, couchbound Charlie, an online writing instructor living with chronic obesity, now has a crystal-clear view of his secret intentions. And confined to his claustrophobic and musty apartment, the self-destructive shut-in has all the time in the world to contemplate the damaging faults of the past, fatherhood, and reconciliation.

21 March – The Old Oak – Directed by Ken Loach – set in County Durham. A pub landlord in a previously thriving mining community struggles to hold onto his pub. Meanwhile, tensions rise in the town when Syrian refugees are placed in empty houses. 

18 April – The Lost King – Based on a true-story. Guided by instinct and spectral visions, an ambitious writer and amateur historian defies the academic establishment to unearth Richard III’s long-missing remains in a Leicester car park. Stars Steve Coogan and Sally Hawkins.

16 May – The Great Escaper – Glenda Jackson’s final film performance alongside Micheal Caine. Based on the true story of Bernard Jordan who escaped from his care home to attend the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landings in France.

20 June – Scrapper – In this British comedy-drama, Georgie, a dreamy 12-year-old girl, lives happily alone in her London flat, filling it with magic. Suddenly, her estranged father turns up and forces her to confront reality.

Please note that the screening times are 7.30pm, with the doors opening at 7.15pm. This is to accommodate another activity in the Hall just prior to the film.

If you would like to reserve tickets please email warcopcinema@outlook.com.

Please share this information with family and friends, it would be great to see some new people trying the cinema.
