Neston Flicks is branching out and trialing a new cinema experience, with a FREE screening of Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom on Monday 12th February, 7pm at Neston Community Youth Centre.
A trainee teacher’s dreams of becoming a singer are interrupted when he is posted to the world’s remotest school in a gentle, multiple award-winning Bhutanese drama.
This is a special screening of the Oscar-nominated film in place of the cancelled December screening. After the film, we will be discussing the formation of a working group to form a Neston Flicks Cinema Club, offering a select choice of less mainstream and niche films once a month. Volunteer John Lacks is the project lead looking to create a great volunteer team to curate an exciting programme of monthly films and related activities. You might know John as the MC of Saturday night flicks at Neston Civic Hall.
John says, 'I've been keen to set up a film club for years. Neston Flicks' Saturday night films at the Civic Hall have become a great success, as have the afternoon matinees at the community centre. We think there's an audience for a different type of cinema, showing films that can be current, past, local, or from across the globe, they just have to be brilliant! The smaller venue of Neston Community Youth Centre, and a different type of film licensing, would allow us to screen hidden gems that deserve greater recognition.'
Doors for Lunana open at 6.30pm, there is plenty of parking at the community centre and on Station Road carpark, and the centre is fully accessible. Unlike the Saturday Flicks, there'll be no interval and no food or drink on sale, but complimentary hot drinks will be available and people are welcome to bring their own drinks and snacks.
Booking is essential for this special screening.
