Joanna Scanlan - David Lean Cinema Patron
The David Lean Cinema has proudly announced renowned British actress Joanna Scanlan as its new Patron. Joanna achieved critical acclaim and won a BAFTA Film Award and a British Independent Film Award for her powerful performance in the film “After Love”.
Expressing her excitement, Joanna stated, “How thrilling to be honoured with the post of Patron of the David Lean Cinema, the shining beacon for all cinema lovers in Croydon. As a young person, independent cinema changed the course of my life and continues to do so. Grassroots cinema clubs like David Lean provide a dynamic source of pleasure and enlightenment. The irrepressible force of the movie as delivered by DLC’s enthusiastic volunteers is the weekly highlight of entertainment and culture for so many. I intend to support and promote fundraising and the team’s world-class programming. Join me at a film or two this year!”
