The Blog Team are happy to help Cheryl & Gill gauge interest in this bright idea. Send us a quick email at email@example.com or add a comment to this post to let us know that you and your children are interested.
Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this month’s Film show, as the heating in the Hall is unreliable, and we could not guarantee that the hall would be warm.
Hope to see you again next month.
Martin and Arnold
Based on the book THE HELP, this charming comedy set in Mississippi during the 1960s tells of a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends’ lives — and a small Mississippi town — upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen, Skeeter’s best friend’s housekeeper, is the first to open up — to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter’s life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories — and as it turns out, they have a lot to say.
In the warm and comfortable Parwich Memorial Hall

Hailed as one of the best films of the millennium, this silent movie, filmed in black & white, has taken the film world by storm.
It’s the late 1920s in Hollywood and handsome George Valentin is a silent movie idol, THE ARTIST. During the premiere of his latest film, Valentin meets Peppy Miller, a star-struck extra and aspiring actress. The two are attracted to each other and Peppy is given a small dancing role in his next picture. As their romance progresses, Valentin’s producer has to cope with a love-struck star who is distracted on the set, Peppy’s career begins to take off, and Valentin fears that a new fad in the movie business – talkies – will ruin him.
