Cinema Paradiso

Fourth Thursday of the month throughout 2018

Cinema Paradiso takes place each month, on the fourth Thursday of the month, throughout the year from 17:30pm to 19:30pm.

At our monthly film night, we watch and talk about independent and international films. We invite everyone to join us for viewings and discussions.

July’s Cinema Paradiso:

9, Director Shane Acker, 79 minutes

A computer-animated post-apocalyptic science fiction film in which a world destroyed in a war between man and machine, a hand-stitched doll with the number 9 written on its back comes to life. The world he has awakened in is frightening, but he quickly learns that he is not alone and that there are others like him, also with a single digit written on their back. The first one he encounters is 2 who tells him something of what happened to the world. 2 is also thrilled with the disk 9 is carrying, one with three unique symbols on the front. 9 soon learns that the disk and some of the other dolls who are prepared to die for the good of humankind may be the last hope for man’s salvation.  It is a story of humanity from non-humans.

We no longer provide a meal for Cinema Paradiso but you are welcome to bring snacks and drinks. Everyone is welcome to  join Community Lunch at 1.00pm every Thursday, further information is here

This is a session for adults. We hold a  family-friendly Film Club on the fourth Saturday of each month and more information can be found here.

Organised with local charity Investing in People and Culture.
