Well what can I say, Elf last Sunday was incredible! For the first time since January we had a full house! A sell out show is always the goal, as well as being a great experience to enjoy a film with so many other folks, it’s also much needed to help us balance our books! Even better that it happens at a Christmas event too as everyone was in such high spirits.

Elf is such a great family movie because the grown ups laugh along as much, if not more, than the kids too! It was great to hear 100+ laughing in unison as Buddy the Elf reminds us of all the reasons we love Christmas! ‘The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!’.

Some very good friends of ours, Matt and Leila Freeman brought their beautiful twin babies Heidi and Rosie along to the event and brought lots of crafting materials and spent the whole event helping the kids make glittery Christmas decorations out of pine cones. Here’s all the kids below showing off their awesome crafts!


We are very grateful to have the support of all our lovely volunteers to help make these events happen and it’s humbling that people want to come along and help out where they can. It really puts the community bit into community cinema!

We have had such an incredible year here at Film at the Folk Hall and this is no small part down to the support of our wonderful audiences. Thank you all for your ongoing support for what we are doing. Highlights include a visit from the award winning actor Dave Johns before ‘I, Daniel Blake’, a dementia awareness event with some inspirational speakers for ‘Still Alice’ and our awards nominations last month from Cinema For All!

We have a fabulous year lined up for you next year too with Dunkirk, Moana, Moonlight and Hidden Figures all coming up in the first 2 months! But for now, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!

That’s a wrap!
