October Film Night

The latter scenes of last month’s film ‘Allelujah’ were unexpected and shocking,  given recent real-life events in the news, and as organiser I should have gone to more trouble to find out about the subject matter and warned people beforehand. My sincere apologies to any of our audience who were upset by the film. Fortunately […]

New Season Film Nights

Sunny June seems a long way away, but we hope you enjoyed the summer nonetheless.  I’m delighted to bring you some excellent news : thanks to the generosity of the Parish Council in providing us with a grant to top up our contingency funds following our projector purchase, the financial viability of Hawkchurch Film Nights […]

June Film Night

Given the atrocious weather, the fact that it was at the end of a bank holiday weekend and the possibly more challenging content of the film, it was perhaps unsurprising that our audience numbers flagged a little for ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ compared to other films we’ve shown this year, despite its success at […]

May Film Night

Our audience held up gratifyingly well for Easter Monday’s screening ‘Living’ – we hadn’t tried a Bank Holiday presentation before and were a little nervous beforehand about numbers.  Many thanks to all those who were able to attend for making it another enjoyable evening. Our next presentation is on another Bank Holiday Monday – this time it’s 8th […]

April Film Night

As our last presentation ‘See How They Run’ wasn’t being shown until after the deadline for submitting copy, I can’t tell you whether it was a hit or not – fingers crossed. Our next presentation is on Easter Monday 10th April. In association with Devon Moviola, we proudly present ‘Living’ (102 mins, Cert. 12 – moderate sex references). Bill Nighy gives […]

March Film Night

We had another enjoyable and successful night at the village hall last month with ‘The Lost King’, including our best takings for refreshments since before the pandemic (glad you enjoyed the Dorset Apple Cake). Well done Jacky for coping with the rush. Many thanks to all of you who attended.  Our next presentation, in association […]

February Film Night

We are delighted to tell you that last month’s screening of ‘Mrs Harris Goes to Paris’ drew our biggest audience for over three and a half years!  Many thanks to all of you who attended and made it such a successful and enjoyable evening. Thanks also to Andy Cowling who printed the flyers included in […]

January Film Night

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas. Our December presentation ‘Good Luck to You, Leo Grande’, while perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, was beautifully played by the two leads, hilariously funny while also providing much food for thought and very warmly received by those who attended.  I must apologise, […]

December Film Night

After a dip in attendance in October, last month’s extraordinary tale of wartime derring-do, ‘Operation Mincemeat’, fared much better – many thanks to all of you who were able to attend despite another wet and windy evening. Our last presentation before Christmas is on Monday 5th December and is a light-hearted choice to get you into the […]

November Film Night

Hawkchurch Film Nights by Chris Andrews After three well-attended films in a row, numbers were unfortunately well down for last month’s film, ‘Elvis’.  Thanks very much to those who came along – we enjoyed a great film with terrific performances and timelessly wonderful music. Our next presentation is on Monday 7th November.  In association with Devon […]
