Thank you to all of those who came last night to see Far from the Madding Crowd at The Hilt. A good ol’ romantic to finish the season. Yes, I did notice the afterglow as you exited :-).
We have really had some good Movies this year with an average audience of about 80. The Imitation Game was the most highly attended with 124.
I am pleased to say we had a surplus of over £2000 which will be returned to the Hilt in lieu of the hire of the Hall.
This is the final note from me about Movies@theHilt but I urge you to now sign-up with Thornden Hall in order to get online communications about their showing of Moviola Movies.
You can do this is two ways.
1. Register with the Thornden Hall via Thornden Hall – Register.
2. Send to me or Neil Daykin, the Thornden Hall Manager, your name, address, phone number, and your preferred email id with a request to subscribe to email alerts about Thornden Hall events.
If you did this last night then no further action is required.
Please understand that there is some unfinished software development going on before these alerts are fully automated. Please be patient as an acknowledgement may take a week or two.
Volunteering for Thornden Hall
You are welcome to be a volunteer at Thornden Hall. The volunteer roles are generally for ushering or working behind the bar. We had a good response last night from the audience.
As a Trustee of the Hiltingbury Community Association I really want to keep Moviola Movies alive and well in Hiltingbury and will endeavour to do what I can to support Neil in making the venue transition a success.
My first loyalty is to the Hilt Movie-goers who have become a Community inside a Community and given Nigel, Lyn, Carole and myself the warm reward of serving our neighbours and friends.
To keep the spirit alive we will still be there at Thornden Hall maybe in a greet role. If you have any issues, or alternatively, good ideas, then Neil and I would be very happy to discuss at any time.
So the next Movie at Thornden Hall is 45 Years on Friday January 15 2016, starring Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay.
The BFI-backed drama won the Michael Powell award for Best British Feature Film at the Edinburgh Film Festival, while the film’s Charlotte Rampling shared the top acting prize.
In the meantime Nigel and I wish you and your family our very best wishes for a Happy Christmas and good fortune in 2016.
