The Big Cheese secures funding of £500

Organisers of Nantwich Big Cheese Film Club are thrilled to announce an award of £500 from Cheshire East Community Grants fund.

We would like to thank Cheshire East Council for this funding and for recognising the valuable input our film club has brought to the town’s community. The funding will help us to purchase our own equipment and improve even further a quality cinema experience to all.

The club is gearing up for its December screening of Volver, by the highly acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar (in Spanish with subtitles) Raimunda (Penelope Cruz) and her sister Sole (Lola Duenas) are visited by the apparation of their mother (Carmen Maura) who has returned to reconcile with her daughters and resolve an issue that has haunted the family since her death. The tragicomic melodrama features Almodovar trademarks: a strong attention to colour and detail and a celebration of the trials and tribulations of women. Volver is a film about the way the presence of the dead continues to add richness and humanity to the lives of those they leave behind.

Volver will be screened on Thursday 8th December  at 7.45pm in the Ballroom of the Crown Hotel. Movie goers are encouraged to go along from 7.15pm for a drink and a chat before the film.

Nantwich Big Cheese Film Club screens independent, foreign language and classic films each month. It aims to establish a ‘cinema’ for Nantwich, cultivating a quality and educational movie experience for members of the public and encouraging discussion in get-togethers before and after each screening.

The club is open to all film lovers over the age of 16 (under 18s must be accompanied by a guardian)

Tickets, priced £5, are now available from the reception of The Crown Hotel.  Alternatively, they can be purchased on the night, subject to availability.
