Nominations For The Committee

As per the constitution each of the current trustees will retire at the conclusion of the annual general meeting but may be eligible for re-election at that annual general meeting along with any new nominees.

The Friends Committee help plan the activities the Friends organise and shape the general direction of the Friends group. We would really like to get a few more faces on the committee at the moment to try bring a more diverse range of voices to the organisation as well as build up a bit more capacity at what is such an exciting time for the Friends due to the changes at the cinema.

If you would be interested in joining the Friends committee you can find out more about the committee by looking at our committee handbook and there is more information with the Nomination Form.

About the Film

We have chosen to play Let The Right One In (2008) as part of the AGM this year in memory of our dear friend Peter Chandley (1953 – 2018). Until his death late last year Peter was the Chair of the Friends, and we are indebted to him for the part he played in saving the cinema from closure in the 1980s.

While often advocating family friendly film choices for the AGM, Peter himself was a great enthusiast for genre films; Hammer horror, comic book adaptations, science
fiction…he loved them all. Let the Right One In was one Peter remembered particularly fondly so we decided it would be the perfect film choice this year to remember our friend.
