Classic cinema comes to Cirencester from October

Film aficionados in Cirencester are in for a big treat from October 2012 when the Corinium Museum launches an exciting season of monthly Thursday evening films. This feast of movie excellence begins on 4 October with the Hitchcock thriller ‘North by Northwest’ which features regularly on critical lists of the best films ever. This is followed in November by a screening of the legendary film ‘Casablanca’ and then December sees a special festive film event featuring the timeless ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’ More classics and other more contemporary quality offerings are lined up for film nights in 2013.

Commenting on the launch of this new season of films in Cirencester, Isobel Milne, Commercial Services Officer at the Corinium, said:

“We have a very smart 72-seater lecture theatre with a large screen and surround sound, and it is also fitted with a hearing loop – it’s the ideal venue for a night out at the cinema, and I am sure that the public will love the film season that we have arranged.”

She continued:

“The Museum already has a Rural Cinema scheme which travels around many venues in the Cotswolds, and this has increased in popularity so much that we now present two film showings over a weekend. We want to build the same loyal following in Cirencester by offering a monthly night out for local film fans. Feedback from the Rural Cinema indicates that there should be a big demand for cinema in Cirencester and we are hoping that this new venture will be a big success.”

Films will start at 7pm and admission costs will be £5.50 for adults and £4.50 for concessions. You can also join a Film Club which offers six films for the price of four. Adult film club prices are £22 per person and concessions are priced at £18 per person.

The full line-up of monthly films is as follows (all start at 7 pm):

Thursday 4th October - North by Northwest
Thursday 8th November - Casablanca
Thursday 13th December - It’s a Wonderful Life
Thursday 10th January - Moonrise Kingdom
Thursday 8th February - Midnight in Paris
Thursday 8th March - My Week with Marilyn
