December Hawkchurch Film Night

Last month’s screenings of ‘1917’ fell victim to the announcement of the second lockdown.  Although the lockdown was not due to start until three days afterwards, we felt that it was not advisable under the circumstances to proceed.  We’re sorry to have disappointed those of you who had booked tickets and hope to reschedule this […]

November Hawkchurch Film Nights – 1917

Very many thanks to those of you who attended the matinee and evening performances of ‘Emma’ last month – we ‘sold’ 25 tickets in all and were pleased overall with how things went.  Obviously the situation was far from ideal, with obligatory face coverings, social interaction not permitted outside individual groups of ticket-holders and lack […]

Hawkchurch Film Nights

Huge thanks to those of you who responded to the Covid-19 consultation last month.  Of the 38 people who responded, 28 said that they were happy for the film nights to resume as soon as Hawkchurch Village Hall reopens, provided the appropriate Covid-19 counter-measures were in place – 73% of the total votes cast is […]

Alternative Ways to Watch

Dear Friends of Hawkchurch Film Nights I hope that you are well and bearing up despite the strictures of the Coronavirus lockdown.  As you know, we are currently unable to bring you any screenings at the village hall and this situation is unlikely to change for some time.  We are hoping to resume in September […]

Downton Abbey

Audience numbers were slightly down for last month’s ‘Downton Abbey’, possibly due to the aftermath of Storm Ciara – thanks to those who braved the elements to attend.   Unlike the genteel pace of the TV series, the film’s multiple plot-lines seemed rather hurriedly introduced and resolved – with the exception of a bombshell near the end, […]

Knives Out – 9th March Film Night

We’re in a country house setting again for this month’s film, but there are more pressing concerns than which cutlery to use for the royal visit. ‘Knives Out’ (cert.12A, 127 mins) is a modern take on the good old-fashioned Agatha Christie-style whodunnit, written and directed by Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi)  and featuring an all-star cast : […]

Downton Abbey – 10th February Film Night

Hawkchurch Film Nights, in association with Devon Moviola February 2020 ‘Judy’ was well received by our audience last month – a terrific performance by Renee Zellweger, which fully merited her Oscar nomination. This month’s screening is on Monday 10th February and needs no introduction : ‘Downton Abbey’ (cert PG, 119 mins) is the big screen spin-off from the […]

Hawkchurch Film Nights January 2020

Happy New Year to you all – I hope you had a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas. Last month’s film ‘Yesterday’ was very warmly received by the audience – understandably given the winning performances, strong direction and classic soundtrack.  Of course it was complete hokum, but the feelgood factor more than made up for it.  A […]

Hawkchurch Film Nights December 2019

Hawkchurch Film Nights December 2019 ‘Late Night’ seemed to be well-received last month – thanks to all of you who came along.  Apologies for letting the heating go off towards the end of the film – we’re still learning the ropes!  Will make sure this doesn’t happen again. This month’s film is on Monday 2nd December, when […]

Hawkchurch Film Nights November 2019

Great turn-out for ‘Rocketman’ last month – really nice to see so many of you enjoyed the film – and the refreshments!  This month’s film is on Monday 4th November, when we’ll be showing ‘Late Night’ (cert 15 – contains strong language), a sharp satire starring Emma Thompson as the presenter of a chat show which hires a new comedy writer […]
