Thursday 3rd November saw the Arrowfield and Hough End Community Action Group stage the first ‘Seniors’ Cinema’ event, specifically aimed at the older members of our community.
This was kindly hosted by Chorlton High School at the Blue Box Theatre, with funding provided by Southway Housing. Around 20 cinema-goers enjoyed a special screening of the Bafta and Academy Award-winning “The King’s Speech” starring Colin Firth as King George VI and Geoffrey Rush as the therapist who helps him overcome his debilitating speech impediment.
The screening was preceded by a buffet meal of soup, sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee, all served up by Chorlton High School student Anna Markman.
We would hopefully like to make this a regular event, so if there’s film you’d like to see on the big screen, then get in touch with your suggestions.
The group would like to extend special thanks to the staff and students of Chorlton High School, especially Diane Clavin for helping make this event such a success.
