Hoylake Community Cinema continues to grow from strength to strength as another film night comes to Hoylake this month. The community group Hoylake Village Life are showing their fourth film in the year-long schedule with the screening of Fargo, a thriller by Joel and Ethan Coen, on Friday 27 January.
The last film, It’s a Wonderful Life, shown before Christmas, attracted a sell-out audience. HVL member Richard Stowe said: “Our film nights have gathered momentum, and to have achieved a full house with only our third film is remarkable. We are anticipating a large turn-out again for Fargo as word of Hoylake Community Cinema spreads.”
Hoylake resident Melanie Bird said: “It was sad to see Hoylake’s only cinema, The Classic, close in the 1990s, especially since members of my family used to work there. I think Hoylake Village Life have done a great job by introducing monthly film nights to Hoylake. Some complain that there’s nothing to do, but this addresses that head-on. People feel there is a real buzz in Hoylake now.”
HVL is also looking to bring Saturday Matinees for the kids to The Parade, Hoylake Community Centre. Plans are being put in place to offer parents the chance to leave their children with CRB-checked childminders to watch a film, and then collect them later. Parents will be free to shop or have coffee in one of the many cafés and restaurants in nearby Market Street.
Tickets for Fargo cost £5 and are available from gift shop Urbane, The Parade, Hoylake Community Centre, on the door, and online at www.hoylakevillage.org.uk. Doors open at 6.30 pm; the film starts at 7.30 pm sharp. There is a licensed bar and the added attraction of a quiz after the film, with prizes for the winner and runner-up. Early booking is advised.
