February Film Night

Hawkchurch Film Nights by Chris Andrews Perishing wind and snow flurries replaced December’s Biblical rain for last month’s challenging weather conditions to accompany our film, ‘A Haunting in Venice’.  Many thanks to the hardy few who braved the elements to attend. I think it’s fairly safe to say that it wasn’t as good as ‘Oppenheimer’, […]

January 2024 Film Night

Hawkchurch Film Nights by Chris Andrews Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. It was suitably apocalyptic weather for our December film, ‘Oppenheimer’, which was a shame, as it meant that a number of our regulars were unable to get to the hall.  Those who did brave the elements had the pleasure […]

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 […]

November Film Night

Our audience for ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’ was somewhat smaller than expected, but those who attended were broadly positive about the film.  Thanks very much to Penny for stepping in for Jacky and Paul in the kitchen – we wish Jacky all the very best after her recent operation. There’s a change to […]

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 […]
