Relaxed Screening: High Society - Thursday 1.30pm

In this strange time of political upsets, arguments and challenges, I wonder if a good easy-to-watch film on the big screen would calm you down..? Well, if so, you might want to come along to the latest in our series of 'Relaxed Screenings' this Thursday, 14th July at 1.30pm at the Alhambra.

We are showing the classic comedy 'High Society'; the music of Cole Porter drives the whole thing along - Grace Kelly is the High Society lady about to marry a solid, but boring man, after her 'True Love' marriage with Bing Crosby has ended. Frank Sinatra is a sleazy reporter who comes along to gloat but (you guessed it) decides she looks 'Sensational'...

It's only £5 and if you know anyone who might need help to get them there, their companion can come along for FREE!

Dementia Friendly Screening: Singin' In The Rain - Wednesday 1:30pm

For those of you who came to the festival, you may remember we showed a 'dementia friendly' screening of Calamity Jane. This was the result of a grant we received to promote films which help reconnect people with dementia to their memories, and to make the environment in the cinema as friendly as possible for them; essentially this means showing classic films, allowing more time for the audience to settle, leaving room for wheelchairs and leaving the lights on (but dimly!). 

We now have three more dates for these set, which are being shown in co-operation with the Keswick WI and various  local dementia organisations  (and, of course, Tom at the Alhambra!). We are charging only £5 to get in and any carers get in free of charge. This doesn't stop you coming too!

The first film is being shown this Wednesday (18th May) at 1.30 at the Alhambra - Singin' in the Rain needs no introduction from me! So if you want to enjoy a relaxed afternoon in front of a large screen, why not join us at the Alhambra? The weather forecast is threatening rain then too, so bring out your umbrella...but maybe avoid swinging on too many lamp posts!

Summer Break

The weather may suggest otherwise but we're now on our summer break. Of course there will still be plenty of great films to see at the Alhambra and the film club will be back in September. Hopefully you'll consider joining, we haven't confirmed the prices yet but this year it was only £7 and saves you £1 for every film you see, including the festival.

Talking of the festival, the good news for us all was that Ian Payne took over the job of running it from Ann Martin after her 10 fantastic years as Director. We should thank both Ann for her amazing work AND Ian for be willing to take over -  Thanks both! We do now need a new Club Secretary though. This is not too heavy a task, so I hope you will think about volunteering.

Don't forget we're on Twitter as @keswickfilm and will continue to tweet details of things coming up at the Alhambra throughout the year.

See you in September.
