CLUB CHAIRMAN WINS 'OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION' AWARD

CLUB RAISES A GRAND FOR LOCAL CHARITIES
posted in Louth Film Club News 2012

Louth Film Club has given over £1000 to two local charities.
 
We donated the proceeds of our recent screenings of Arrietty, the Japanese animation based on The Borrowers, to Home-Start East Lindsey, which supports families with young children in the district. The amount raised, at the club's regular evening show and two additional performances for children from Lacey Gardens Junior School, was £630.
 
Because we didn't have to pay hire fees for our special screening of Juan (see below) or for its star Christopher Maltman to come and do a Q&A, we decided to donate any profits to a local charity of Christopher's choice. The event attracted an audience of just over 200 and we made just under £400. We rounded that up to exactly £400 and sent a cheque for that amount to the League of Friends of Louth Hospital, which raises money for equipment and offers various support services for patients and visitors.

OPERA STAR CHRISTOPHER MALTMAN TO DO Q&A AT EXCLUSIVE SCREENING OF JUAN (DON GIOVANNI)
 
Former Louth schoolboy now internationally renowned opera singer Christopher Maltman will attend Louth Film Club’s exclusive screening of Juan, a spectacular modern-day version of Mozart’s Don Giovanni (sung in English but to the original music) in which he takes the title rôle as the great philanderer.

The film will be shown at the Playhouse Cinema on Thursday 17th May at 7.30pm, to be followed by a question-and-answer session in which Maltman will talk about the making of the film and about his life, from childhood in Louth to a career as one of the world’s leading baritones.

Juan, a Danish production set in an anonymous European city (it was filmed in Budapest) is Certificate 15. 

You don’t have to be a member of the club to see the film. Tickets can be bought in advance from Off The Beaten Tracks record shop, 36 Aswell Street, Louth (closed Thursdays), or at the Playhouse Cinema on the night. They cost £5.90 (£4.70 concessions) for non-members, £3.50 for members.

OUR BIGGER, EVEN BETTER PROGRAMME FOR 2012-13

Committee members have seen more films than ever over the last 12 months, a total of about 180 that were candidates for inclusion. As a result we think we have the best programme in the club's six-year history. Every film has been seen by at least one committee member, many by two, three or even four of us. And the programme still includes some of the films that members have asked us to show.
 
Our selection of classic films, all newly restored, includes some of the greatest landmarks in cinema history, such as Ken Loach's Kes and Terrence Malick's Days Of Heaven. 
 
Details of all the films have been posted on the website — see What's On and click on the titles or posters — with links to trailers for most of them. But don't forget to pick up our free, full-colour, eight-page printed programme from membership secretary Mark Merrifield's record shop, Off The Beaten Tracks, at 36 Aswell Street, Louth. It's also available from the Playhouse Cinema, Louth Library or the Tourist Information Office.
