One of cinema’s all-time greats comes to Hoylake this month. Hoylake Community Cinema are screening On the Waterfront, starring Marlon Brando, on Friday 24 February. The film was made when Brando was at the height of his career, and many will automatically link him with the role of Terry Malloy and the famous line “I coulda been a contender.”
The film is the fifth in community group Hoylake Village Life’s 12-month schedule. Group member Margaret Robertson said: “It is really satisfying that our film nights have caught people’s imagination. We now have a regular group of filmgoers, and numbers continue to grow. Our last film, Fargo, attracted a large audience, many from West Kirby. Hoylake Community Cinema was also mentioned on the BBC’s news programme Northwest Tonight last week, which will have increased interest.”
HVL’s emphasis has always been on community – not only by showing classic films at a local venue, but also offering the chance for the community to get together. Hoylake resident Dave Edwards said: “Apart from public meetings, I can’t remember seeing so many local residents in one place. It is obvious that people appreciate going to see a film, having a drink and generally socialising. I really look forward to these nights, and I haven’t missed one yet!”

Doors open at 6.30 pm; the film starts at 7.30 pm sharp. There is a licensed bar, homemade snacks, and a quiz after the film, with prizes for the winner and runner-up.
