FILM fans can enjoy big screen entertainment at Goostrey Scout Hut and Youth Centre every month from this Saturday, September 7.

Resident Tony Taylor, a community events organiser, is to use the venue opposite the Crown Inn for his latest venture, the Goostrey Film Club.

Launching on Saturday night, it will be a free-to-enter premier on a first-come basis, showing British comedy What We Did on Our Holiday, starring Billy Connolly, David Tennant and Rosamund Pike.

Doors open at 6.30pm, the film starts at 7pm, and it is advisable to bring a cushion to put on the chair for extra comfort.

Tony was inspired to organise monthly films in the village by Holmes Chapel's popular Reels on Wheels film shows.

He said: “After talking to the main Reels on Wheels man about film licences, performing rights and the how to buy the films to be shown in a community setting I thought we could do the same in Goostrey.

"The centre is not quite an Odeon multiplex, but it is in the village and affordable, and has an impressive multi-media set-up with a giant screen, hi-definition projector, surround sound and Blu-ray DVD player.”

The venue can comfortably seat an 80-strong audience for performances on the first Saturday night in the month, with tickets at £6 booked online.

This is the schedule for the rest of the year; Saturday, October 5, Bohemian Rhapsody; Saturday, November 9, A Star is Born; Saturday, December 7, Blinded by the Light.

A link will be sent out two weeks before the showing where you can book your tickets for the upcoming film.
