This summer Z-arts have teamed up with the Age Friendly Society in Hulme to provide over 50s with a welcoming, fun and easily accessible activity in M15. Cinema Social Club welcomes all over 50s, particularly those in our local communities in Hulme and Moss side.
The club launched in April with Manchester film historian CP Lee making a special appearance at the first event. At each session everyone who comes along will choose together which film they’re going to watch in our cinema screening room, after a cup of tea or coffee we’ll grab a bag of popcorn and get watching. After the film Z-café dishes up some delicious hot food and there’s a chance to have a chat and share your thoughts on the film…good or bad, there have been some great discussions. So far films have included Little Miss Sunshine, The Magdalene Sisters, The Producers and Chi-Raq. CP Lee also returned last month to deliver a fascinating workshop and discussion around Russian soviet documentary and 1920s film art.
If you’re over 50 and fancy a break from the sunshine, meeting new people or just kicking back and watching a film this summer, email Yemi firstname.lastname@example.org. Cinema Social Club will continue each Tuesday 4-7pm until 21 August, catch the last few whilst you still can!
