Lost In Film opens Screen 2
Tuesday 11th October 2011
Lost In Film, the Lostwithiel film society, are launching a new monthly screening night which is hoped to become a regular fixture. Screen 2 will be small, informal screenings for film fans who enjoy quality cutting-edge cinema. Audiences can expect films which are more challenging and alternative than the regular Lost In Film programme.
The first film to be shown as part of Screen 2 will be Precious (certificate 15) on Thursday 20th October. The film is adapted from a best-selling novel and tells the story of an overweight, illiterate teen from Harlem who is pregnant with her second child. Her future holds little prospect until she is invited to enrol at a new school.
The idea behind Screen 2 has come from demand for more challenging films. Chairman Mat Connolley said "Our Monday night screenings are very popular but we've also been asked to show films which are a bit more unusual, so we've decided to start Screen 2 to cater for those movie buffs. Precious is one of my personal favourite films - it's harrowing at times but ultimately it's a really inspiring drama."
Films will be shown at the Oasis wing of the Lostwithiel Community Centre with limited ticket numbers and drinks will be BYO. Tickets are £4 for adults, £2 for under 18s and are available online from www.lostinfilm.org.uk or on the door. Because seat numbers are limited people are urged to buy tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
Lost in Film has just begun its fourth season with True Grit, last year's adaptation of the classic Western novel by the Coen brothers. A list of all up-coming films are available at www.lostinfilm.org.uk.
