At last we can announce our Autumn films.
We will be following the same pandemic procedures we had before until we feel confident to relax them.
We will show each film twice on a Tuesday and then the following Sunday. So to start with:
Official Secrets – Tuesday 7th and Sunday 12th . Space Walker – Tuesday 21st and Sunday 26th
Nomadland – Tuesday 5th and Sunday 10th . Parasite – Tuesday 19th and Sunday 24th
So you can start booking in by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with film and date. There are a lot of great films that have accumulated and we are looking forward to showing them so keep an eye out on this website.
If you aren’t a member but would like to be kept in touch with our news just email email@example.com and you will be added to the email lists.
AGM – our AGM is scheduled for Tuesday 24th August 7.30 or 8pm – it could be a gathering or zoom – details to follow. We also plan to offer free membership again to thank you for your support and to use some of our extra funds.
We have decided to start showing films again from September 2021, the usual start of our annual programme.It seems that covid 19 isn’t going completely away so to be cautious we aren’t going to print a full programme but be ‘spontaneous’ deciding what films to show and how often month to month.
Films we decide to show will be on the website and members emailed. The usual stunning ‘Layfield’ posters will be put up to show the world that we are back in action.
We are in the process of watching and selecting lots of films, many which have been missed over the last 12 months.
Any comments or ideas to secretary Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org
As you will have anticipated we are having to close The Carthouse again until we are told we can reopen. This means that Official Secrets and Space Walker will not be shown for the time being.
The OPCC committee would like to wish all their members a productive and healthy 2021 and look forward to seeing you all when it is safe and permitted to do so.
We are now able to open up The Carthouse and show films again. We will continue on the same restricted basis as before, this time showing films twice.
GREEN BOOK – Saturday December 12th and Sunday 20th
OFFICIAL SECRETS – Tuesday January 5th and Saturday 16th
SPACEWALKER – Sunday 24th and Tuesday 2nd February
We will progress with caution and select films around two months at a time until we can return to normal.
As you will have anticipated we are having to close The Carthouse again. This time from 5th November until we are told we can reopen. This means that the 2 shows of Green Book scheduled for 14th and 22nd November will not take place.
We really appreciated the support we have had in September and October. With full shows (12 people!) and reduced licence fees we have managed to keep our losses down. It was worth opening and hope to be able to continue with the one film shown three times in December and January with a possible mini mountain fest at some point; always hopeful and optimistic.
We are delighted to let you know that due to a positive response from our members survey we are going to open The Carthouse as a trial in September, October & November.
We have spent a lot of time checking out the government & industry guidelines and working out how we can best make it safe for everyone yet still offer the special atmosphere the Carthouse provides.
Anyone feeling ill or shielding anyone who is unwell will be asked not to come. Anyone feeling uncomfortable with the arrangements on the night will be offered their seat money envelope back. There will be a minimum of 72 hours between film shows.
