As a result of the on going popularity of the Film shows, the Parish Hall Committee have invested in “state of the art” equipment to provide wonderful picture reproduction and amazing sound.
This new technology together with the new comfortable seating in the recently restored Hall will make the Parish Hall the pre-eminent venue for Cinema in Whitchurch.
Song For Marion, starring Vanessa Redgrave, Terence Stamp, Gemma Arterton and Christopher Eccleston on 18th of July will be the first Film to be shown using the new equipment:
Arthur (Stamp) is the grumpy husband of Marion (Redgrave), who is terminally ill yet continues to participate with enthusiasm at her local seniors’ choir. Arthur is unimpressed when the choir, led by mistress Elizabeth (Arterton) serenades the couple at their home.
As Marion’s health deteriorates, Arthur is keen to please his dying wife and even agrees to take her place in the choir. The transition proves to be more trying for Arthur thanks to the unconventional songbook that includes racier songs such as Let’s Talk About Sex. Arthur’s experience in this new social environment will take him on a journey of self-discovery and thaw his bitterness, qualities that he will need in his imminent transition to life without Marion.
