We haven’t been completely idle over the past couple of months. We conducted a survey of members to test the level of enthusiasm for a return to the cinema.
Parkway has arrangements in place for operating while the Covid-19 pandemic persists and they can be found here. These include a reduced capacity, to facilitate social distancing, but this is unlikely to be a problem for us.
The survey indicates that with these new arrangements, almost two thirds of members would be happy to come to a film showing in October. As a result, we are proposing to resume operations from 8th October, with a film every two months, showing the remaining films from the 2019-20 season – see box below.
That takes us up to April, then we will have a summer break and restart, with a brand new season of brilliant films in September 2021. Current memberships will continue until April. The arrangements will be reviewed after each film, based on attendance and feedback. I’ll let you know in future newsletters if we think we need to make further changes.
We are very pleased that we are now able to continue showing our planned programme of films and hope you are too.
Remaining films for the 2019-20 season
As the original bookings were cancelled, we are having to re-book, so we will not be showing the films in the order shown in our programme for the year.
On 8th October, we will be showing:
RBG (2018) USA Documentary
A revelatory american documentary on the exceptional life and career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon.
The other planned films we have not yet shown are:
Lebanon | Drama | 126 mins
USSR | Drama | 106 mins
Spain | Biog Drama | 111 mins
