A Smouldering Return for Film Club

What a beautiful film to herald the return of the Nantwich Big Cheese Film Club.  Michael Fassbender smouldered as an intense Mr Rochester and Mia Wasikowska was self-possessed and successfully carried off the classic role of Jane Eyre.  The real star was the beautiful Yorkshire scenery which was mesmerising on the large screen.  Our audience seemed to enjoy it too, scoring it as an impressive 4.2 out of 5.  It was wonderful to be using the town’s Civic Hall for a community event like this and we look forward to filling it up as word spreads.  It was great to have the chance to meet lots of the audience and enjoy a drink and a chat before and after the screening.

The new season, taking us up to November was announced and the audience on Monday enjoyed the trailers for the next 2 films:

August 13th: Midnight in Paris (2011)

September 10th: The Lives of Others (Germany 2006)

October 8th: The Last Picture Show (1971)

November 19th: Submarine (2011)

Film Club Relaunches on Monday 9th July!

Nantwich Big Cheese Film Club is pleased to announce the return of films on the Big Screen to the town with a new season of classic and award winning films and a new venue. From Monday July 9th, 2012 the Club will re-launch at the Nantwich Civic Hall.
We want the showings to stay in the town centre and the facilities at the Civic Hall will be great to attract new and returning members to our films with parking right outside, disabled access, comfortable seating and full bar.
The Club has recently bought new equipment with grants from the Nantwich Town Council and from Cheshire East and together with the Civic Hall’s cinema-screen and audio system the quality of the Big Screen experience will be better than ever.
The season starts on Monday July 9th with Cary Fukunaga’s award winning 2011 adaptation of Jane Eyre starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender. Jayne Eyre Poster
Announcement of the full season of films for 2012 will be made at the first film.
All showings begin promptly at 7:45pm. The Civic Hall bar will be open for refreshments from 7:00pm and will also open after the film when everyone is welcome to stay on and meet other film enthusiasts.
The Club is always looking for film and event suggestions. We can still be found on the Internet at nantwichfilmclub.wordpress.com. Please Friend us at Nantwich Big Cheese Film Club on Facebook and watch out for news and reviews @filmnantwich on Twitter.
We look forward to seeing you on July 9th.
The Big Cheese Film Club

The Big Cheese is back…

Thank you for your patience while we have worked behind the scenes to get the film club back up and running.  We are very much hoping to start showing films again in the near future and we have received some welcome funding from Nantwich Town Council to help us purchase some new equipment.

We are holding a meeting next Thursday 26th April at 8pm in The Crown Hotel bar.  This is a call for all those who have said they would be prepared to help out to keep the club running. We really need to know how much support there is available for the film club.  If we have enough interest on the night we will continue on to our AGM and move to quickly getting a new schedule of films together.

We would love to see you on the 26th, please feel welcome to attend even if you can’t commit at the moment to being anything other than an enthusiastic audience member.  However if you do feel able to help please come along and let us know what you could do.

In particular we are looking to fill the formal committee roles of Chair and Secretary, Katharine Dowson is happy to continue as Treasurer and Mary Habesch as a committee member if voted in.  We have had some interest in the role of Chair but please email us if you might be interested and would like to have a further discussion about either of these roles. We do need a Secretary to attend monthly committee meetings and keep the minutes. We would also welcome a couple more committee members for general support and film booking.

We are also after people with an interest in marketing and PR, particularly in social media such as Facebook, blogs and Twitter. Also anyone  who could help with poster placing, equipment set-up or any of the other little tasks that need doing.

Please email us back if you would like to have any more information or have a chat about the commitment you are able to offer at the moment.

Thank you for your patience and messages of support over the last few months and we hope to be able to bring back the Film Club you all want.
