Dear Film Lovers,
It is with great regret that we must cancel Friday’s outdoor showing of The Peanut Butter Falcon.
The Cliffden Hotel who had generously offered the space, have decided, following government advice, that we can only have a maximum of 30 attendees.
Obviously with a projectionist, and committee members on the door and serving refreshments, we would need to reduce the audience numbers to around 22. We cannot easily find a fair way of allocating that number of tickets, so sadly have decided to cancel.
Your committee has worked hard to try to make this happen, and can perhaps use this experience to repeat the idea, next summer.
I wish you a safe future and will keep you informed as to the restarting of our regular showings.
Your TFS committee will continue to meet on monthly zoom meetings to explore the possibilities of restarting our film showings.
The government allowed public cinemas to reopen from the beginning of July, with rather complicated rules regarding distancing, both in the auditoriums and entrance halls.
Our own situation is dependent on the school allowing the use of the Art’s Centre, following guidelines of distancing, and working out the feasibility of pre-showing refreshments.
We will keep you informed of any changes in the current situation.
When we do emerge, we will keep to the printed film dates, as shown on this Web site, and catch up, next year, with all those we missed. Any members who paid their membership prior to lock down will be credited for the missed months.
Meanwhile, best wishes from the whole committee. We hope to see everyone as soon as possible.
Steve Bentley. Chair TFS committee.
