We are trying something different for our May event and we’re inviting you to PAY IT FORWARD with us.
We’ll be covering the costs of putting on ‘First Man’ (12a) and all we ask is that you simply pay something forward to someone else after the event. It can be big or small, it’s completely up to you. You could have a chat and a sandwich with a homeless person, or perhaps give blood. Maybe you could reconnect with a friend who needs cheering up or start volunteering somewhere. Whatever it is, big or small, just pay something forward to make a positive difference!
Don’t worry if it’s not your thing – we’d still love you to come along and we will have a collection for York Food bank on the night for those who would rather donate. We have checked with them and cash donations are best so we will have a bucket!
The bar and doors are from 6:30pm and the film will start at 7:30pm with the introduction before hand. Come in good time to get your seats! We expect this to be a popular event so please reserve your ticket as soon as you can!
Synopsis – On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Evelyn (12a) – With Special Guests
Friday 07th June 2019 – 18:30 Doors – 19:30 Film
Evelyn is a deeply personal film from the Oscar-winning filmmakers of The White Helmets and Virunga. It’s the story of how a family survives the unthinkable. Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother, Evelyn, the family decide to walk the length of the UK and try to talk about him – something they had failed to do in over a decade.
This poetic feature documentary explores the fabric of grief and the longevity of love. Part quest film, part road-trip, part memoir, Evelyn is an exposition of the taboos of mental health and male emotion, and a tribute to our times.
We will also be welcoming local film maker Kev Curran from Inspired Youth to share his story as well as Andy Chapman, York’s Suicide Prevention Lead. We are glad to offer you this event free of charge and hope you’ll join in the discussion about this incredibly important subject.
