New Film Society for Mytholmroyd
Tuesday, 18 November 2008
The Calder High Film Society is kicking off on Thursday 27 November with the Oscar Nominated film, Joyeux Noel. The evening is the first of a new community film night, which will take place once every six weeks at Mytholmroyd's first and only cinema.
The cinema, in the Ted Hughes Theatre at Calder High School, is a welcome addition to the Calder Valley's wide range of venues. Stephen Ball, Head teacher at Calder High School told the Hebden Bridge Web: "This is a very exciting venture for both the school and the community. The excellent facilities available at the Ted Hughes Theatre make it an ideal location for holding film nights. We look forward to welcoming members of the community through our doors.
Joyeux Noel, based on a true story, is set in the midst of the chaos of the First World War. It tells the story of Christmas Eve 1914, when enemies united to shake hands, sing carols and play games. It's a tale of how the spirit of humanity broke through the misery of war, and the price that then had to be paid.
John Baker, from Calder High Film Society, says: "We plan to cater for a range of tastes, and to offer a range of films that people might not get to see in their average commercial cinema. We have the technology, we have the expertise and we have the volunteers; all we need now is an audience!"
Refreshments will be available and these will follow the Christmas theme, with mulled wine and mince pies. Joyeux Noel, a 12 classification, will start at 7pm with prices for adults at £3 and children £2.
