December Film Night

Hawkchurch Film Nights by Chris Andrews

Last month’s film, ‘What’s Love Got To Do with It?’, was a hugely enjoyable romcom which went down very well with our audience.  We managed to cover our costs for the first time since April too, which is always welcome!  Thanks very much to Helen and Trevor Salway-Roberts for stepping in for Jacky and Paul in the kitchen – we wish Jacky all the very best after her recent spell in hospital.

We’re ending the 2023 autumn season with a bang in more ways than one.  Our possibly-not-very-festive film on Monday 4th December is the blockbuster ‘Oppenheimer’ (180 mins + interval, Cert. 15 – strong language, sex).  Christopher Nolan (‘Dunkirk’, ‘Inception’, ‘The Dark Knight’) directs this spectacular biopic about the creator of the atomic bomb.  Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt and Matt Damon lead an all-star cast.  Quite simply, one of the films of the year. 

Please note the long running time of this film – we are starting half an hour earlier than usual and there will be a 15 minute interval halfway through. Please feel free to bring a cushion!

Doors open 6.00pm, film starts 6.30pm at Hawkchurch Village Hall, EX13 5XD.  Ticket reservations £5.50 from or leave a message on 01297 678176 (socially-distanced seating available if reserved in advance); tickets also available for £5.50 from Hawkchurch Community Shop or £6.00 on the door (cash only). We always hope to provide subtitles for the hard-of-hearing, but this is dependent on our suppliers at the film distribution company – please check with me on the day of the screening if you’d like confirmation.  Home-made cake, wine and other festive refreshments available.

Penny, Helen, Trevor and I look forward to seeing you at the village hall.

Details of our 2024 season will be announced shortly. Our e-mail group ‘Friends of Hawkchurch Film Nights’ has the latest info – let me know if you’d like to join.
