We are thrilled to announce the opening of a community cInema and film club just set up in Northenden. It's called 'The Block' and can be found at West View Court off Royle Green Road. They will be screening evening performances on Thursdays, and some afternoons they will be running 'Feel Good Cinema' which are screenings for people experiencing memory loss issues including dementia. Not only is there a large screening area, but you will also enjoy full surround sound!
Tickets cost £4 and include the first tea/coffee and biscuits.
They are presently building a dedicated webpage to promote the films. In the meantime, tickets can be purchased at Salutem Cafe on Palatine Road or Rings 'n' Things on Church Road.
The first screening on 21 November is 'The Railway Man' starring
Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
Apart from two great actors, it is based on a true story and has everything, a story that moves between the present and the second world war, with themes of love, loss and forgiveness - phew!
Getting Here - Transport
There is parking available outside the cinema with a car park at the front and back. The cinema is close to bus routes on Longley Lane and Royle Green Road. From the bus stop on Royle Green Road, it is only a three-minute walk to the cinema down 'Greenway' and West View Road. It's a 10-minute walk from Palatine Road, if you take Church Road to Royle Green Road then Greenway on your left.
For those using GoogleMaps or SatNav, the cinema postcode is M22 4LQ.
Over the Christmas period, we are screening 'It's a Wonderful Life' - more details to follow!
