I thought the debut film show at Maulds Meaburn Village Institute last night (Nov.16) was a cracking success! Good folk from Eden Arts set up an enormous screen, the projector equivalent of Big Bertha and speakers in the main hall, while our live Blues musicians warmed up the audience a dedicated team ran the bar and cooked up beef burgers and vegetarian counterpart in the kitchen – with the most scrumptious caramelised onions that ever treated the taste buds.
The show kicked off with a live Blues selection from the talented Brian Morris and Ethan Thomas and then the film began. Back projected and seen at full-size, the film really came alive to the audience. The car chase through the mall and dance action was restored to the intensity that the Director intended. Praise the Lord and pass the popcorn!
It was a big hit. Congratulations to the Friends of MMVI involved with this one, it’s another winner. Anybody interested in joining the Committee should contact Annie Kindleysides, we would love to have more people of all ages involved. Not least, in the selection of which films we’d like to show.
I’d never seen this film on large screen and I’d forgotten how intense the action is. TV is all very well, but it’s just not the same. This is what the roving cinema can do, it allows classic films to be seen as they were made to be, larger than life and with full sound, right in the hearts of our communities. For latest releases and THX surround sound glamour etc, go to the Cinema in Penrith, but for community film events, Remote Rural Cinema is the ticket!
Any film available on DVD or Blue Ray can be booked by local film clubs / Village Hall Committees and transformed into a memorable event. So six months or so from now we could be showing the new Bond fim, Skyfall. Excellent work Eden Arts!
As it is fully digital, their system can play anything from a laptop, Disc or mp3 player in public buildings with the required license in place.
Crosby Ravensworth Village Hall will be showing The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel soon. Watch this space for details.
