On Friday school was finally 'out' for summer for Tarvin's children. Many of them celebrated the start of their summer holidays with their parents by attending the last film in the first season of the Family Film Night at the Tarvin Community Centre.
As reported by Tarvinonline recently, the Family Film night has gone from strength to strength. The final film of the season was Epic, a feature-length computer animated fantasy adventure drama. This was loosely based on William Joyce's children's book, The Leaf Men and Good Brave bugs and attracted an audience of 39 adults and 66 children.
Alan Wilkinson, Chairman of the Community Centre committee said "we lost money on the first film but our decision to stick with the programme has been more than justified by the recent record levels of attendance."
He added "It's not all been plain sailing. A recent showing of Oz the Great and Powerful had to be cancelled when the digital system failed. So much for progress! In the circumstances, our audience was very understanding. Many of the adults enjoyed an age-appropriate drink and chat, whilst the children had a great run around the main hall, so we received little in the way of complaints when we refunded the ticket money. However, it was somewhat of a relief when we saw that the last film of the season, Epic, was to be delivered on good old-fashioned celluloid!"
Brian Hardacre, who normally runs the box office said, "The Film Night is one of the most enjoyable times at the Community Centre. Seeing the pleasure and excitement on the children's faces as they arrive with their cuddly toys and pillows makes all the work worthwhile. It's also great to see so many parents, and sometimes grandparents, coming to the Centre"
After a summer break during August, the Family Film Night will return for its second season in September. The first film of the season has already been booked and will be another feature-length cartoon entitled Monster University. Described as a computer-animated family buddy comedy film, the film is produced by Pixar and is a prequel to the 2001 film Monsters Inc.
