News Update 23 April 2017

Two excellent films played to full houses last week – Elle marked a return to the screen of the incomparable Isabelle Huppert, and was praised as “riveting” and “thought-provoking” by patrons. It was clear that Hidden Figures greatly impressed our audiences, who found it an absorbing and inspiring film with much to say about the advancement of civil rights in 1960s America. Both have repeat showings scheduled – Elle on 8 May at 19:30 and Hidden Figures on 10 May also at 19:30. Catch them while you can. Read More……

Thursday’s film Fences was well-received by patrons. Kishiko Bennett, from Crystal Palace, was our guest at the evening screening, having been informed towards the end of March that she was the buyer of our 25,000 ticket! A relative newcomer to the David Lean, Mrs Bennett hopes to make many more visits in the future. She said: “I’m delighted to be able to see the films I enjoy in this intimate, comfortable and friendly cinema”.

The week ahead includes sell out screenings of Elle and Hidden Figures, although a few 11:00am tickets remain for the latter. Extra screenings of both are indicated below, as well as the final opportunity (other than a Babes in Arms screening on 9 May) to see Moonlight. Read More………

The Spumante flowed before Lion on Thursday. It was a great pleasure to celebrate our three years of films at the David Lean, especially as it was a chance to share memories and thank our friends who have attended countless screenings. Some have been a part of the campaign ever since our June 2011 meeting at the Green Dragon! The congratulations and kind words were much appreciated and it was an uplifting day that reminded us of how much the cinema means to our supporters.
