With the surge of the Omicron variant, the Community Centre Committee has again decided to postpone having a children's film on Friday January 28th. The Committee judge that there may well be reluctance from parents to mix more than is necessary to ensure that children's education is not affected by potential absences.
Film Organiser Jane said " We know how much the Family Film has become part of Tarvin's cultural scene, and how much our young film-goers, and their parents, appreciate it. We are also very conscious that there hasn't been a children's film since October. But informal soundings among parents suggests that the audience this month could be quite small. We promise some wonderful films for our younger audiences when we have a much better idea of the progress of the pandemic. Children's films will return to the Community Centre, have no doubt about that."
There will be a film on January 28th , the Stephen Spielberg remake of the classic musical West Side Story. The film, which has received excellent reviews, should appeal to all those who remember the original 1961 version, and to younger audiences who will want to see why the film and its iconic songs, have lasted so well for so many decades.
The audience will be socially distanced and mask wearing while moving about is advised.
As the film is a little longer than usual, it will start at 7.30pm rather than 8.00pm. The doors will be open from 6.45 and patrons are asked to use the front entrance. The bar will also be open from this time, and cash or cards will be accepted. The ticket price remains the same, £5 per person.
