Doynton Big Screen

Doynton Big Screen wishes to say thank you to everyone who supported the most recent night on 24th February. Although running these events is hard work for a few days we love that so many people attend and enjoy the results. The 24th was no exception. The film Breathe brought plenty of laughter and a few tears. We were also able to raise £1245 for SANDS (stillborn and neonatal death charity). We've decided to take a season off so will be back with new films in September 2019. If anyone would like to help run a night and nominate a charity please contact nfryer6@googlemail.com

Breathe: Joy is a complicated emotion to capture on screen – particularly when your narrative deals with paralysis, imprisonment and a desire for death. Yet Andy Serkis’s directorial feature debut, about the life of pioneering polio survivor Robin Cavendish, is so full of laughter that you might easily forget its sombre subject matter. Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. It stars Andrew Garfied as Cavendish and Clare Foy as his wife, Tom Holland is her twin brother and Hugh Bonneville the inventor of the machine that lets him escape from his iron lung. This event will be in aid of SANDS - Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Charity

As always there will be a bar and we'll be serving a delicious three course meal, entry is £6.50 a head. To book a table and to ensure a ticket please call me on 0117 9372084 or email on nfryer6@googlemail.com .

All proceeds will be going to The Village Hall to help fund a new screen and projector so future screening can be even bigger and better.

Doors open at 7.30 on Saturday 24th Feb and the film starts at 8pm.
