Film Nights

We have been showing films at the hall regularly for several years. Initially we hired equipment from Stratford District Council, and we are grateful for their assistance.

We have now invested in our own equipment, and are continuing to show films at the Village Hall, running this as a cinema club. Everyone is welcome, and it costs nothing to join. All you need to do is let Jane Wang (broomvillagehall@gmail.com) have your email address, so we can send you details of the films each month. Membership of the club will include all people living in households where at least one person has provided an email address.

We hope that this system will allow us to bring you more up-to-the-minute films, as soon as they are released on DVD. We aim to notify choices in advance, so club members will be able plan ahead.

On entry to a film screening, we sell a raffle ticket to each person (at £2.50) and after the film, the person with the winning ticket number gets to keep the DVD!

We aim to show around 18 films during the first year (two per month in winter and one per month in the summer). The film nights will normally be on the second Friday of each month (and, where there is a second film, the fourth Friday).

 

Details of films can be found on the Broom Village Hall Notice Board and members of the Cinema Club will be notified of all films by email.

See above to sign up to the cinema club.

We are pleased to announce that we are fully licenced for all events held by the Broom Village Hall Committee and as before, refreshments (beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, ice creams and chocolate) will be available both before the film, and during an interval.

A moving film telling the true story of an unlikely friendship between a young homeless busker and the animal that changed his life.


Friday  13th October 2017

We will be showing a certificate 15 film.

A widowed, gruff but goodhearted woodworker finds the welfare system fails him after he becomes ill. He must stand up and fight for his dignity. The story follows his one man crusade for compassion that will transform the lives of a struggling single mum and her two children.

 

Friday  27th October 2017

We will be showing a certificate 15 film.

The story of the first conscientious objector ever to earn the Congressional Medal of Honour. During a bloody battle in WWII an army medic saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. Believing that whilst the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. He single handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines and was himself wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers.
