Film lovers can enjoy watching films in Hoylake once more, thanks to a new Film Night being organised by local residents. Hoylake used to be home to two cinemas, one near the Promenade and one on Market Street, but these have long since closed. Now, local residents are keen to see films again in Hoylake, and have decided to do something about it.
The grassroots community group Hoylake Village Life (HVL) has organised it’s first Film Night, a showing of Nowhere Boy, the story of John Lennon’s early life, on Friday 30 September at the Parade Hoylake Community Centre.
Group member, Mark Howard, 39, says “a cinema is a huge attraction for any local town. We know we might not be able to attract a new purpose built cinema to Hoylake, but by showing films at The Parade, the local community can still enjoy the cinema experience without having to drive”. Mark added “for this to work on a regular basis we really need the local community to rally around and buy tickets for the event”.
Vaughan Williams, Chairman of the Parade Hoylake Community Centre, said, “We are delighted to be able to support the idea of film nights in Hoylake. This initiative fits in with our continued development of the Centre to provide a top class local venue. We have just completed a full refit of the lighting, sound
systems and projection for our main hall and are confident this will provide a great facility for the local residents to enjoy”.
This event builds on HVL’s list of community activities which include the annual Halloween Children’s Party (Saturday 29 October, 5 pm-8 pm at The Parade), and the forthcoming Saturday Morning Film Matinees for kids (mid October)
