An update on David Lean screenings from the chairman of the Save the David Lean Cinema CIC, Philip Howard:
I hope you are keeping well, after a difficult few months for all of us in the David Lean Cinema community.
The Prime Minister’s announcement towards the end of February brought welcome positive news about the reopening of many parts of the economy, including cinemas. We’re very pleased about this, and are working on how we can get back to showing films in the David Lean. While it’s currently too early to commit to a reopening date, we’ll be discussing options with our landlords – the London Borough of Croydon – and as time goes on we’ll be in touch with our valued volunteers too.
I hope to have further news for you once the country has progressed to Step Two of the reopening plan. In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the films in our Watch At Home programme and David’s recommendations from the TV schedules!
