Af­ter­noon at movies


The monthly Movie Af­ter­noon at the Angli­can Care El­skie Cen­tre is be­com­ing an event not to miss.

Af­ter some teething is­sues on the first af­ter­noon ev­ery­thing has run smoothly as peo­ple flock to the event. Since then Mamma Mia and The Best Ex­otic Marigold Ho­tel have been thor­oughly en­joyed and pa­trons are keen to know what will be next month.

The in­spi­ra­tion came from El­skie Cen­tre Ac­tiv­i­ties Co­or­di­na­tor Kay McLen­nan who felt there was a need to pro­vide dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties for the Cen­tre’s clients and to pub­li­cise the cen­tre. The hall was blacked out and dec­o­rated, a big screen was mounted on the wall and com­fort­able seat­ing in­stalled. The servery of­fered free pop­corn and sweets, with ice-creams at half time. Af­ter a few hitches a sub­sti­tute movie Mrs Pal­frey at the Claremont worked and the af­ter­noon was en­joyed by a full house of 30.

Kay would like more peo­ple to come. Con­tact her on 06 374 7070.

Ni­cole Wishey the pop­corn cre­ator and Kay McLen­nan the movie or­gan­iser await the crowd on the first af­ter­noon.

Vis­i­tors en­ter the the­atre through a door fea­tur­ing the stars of the El­skie Cen­tre.

The au­di­ence waits ex­pec­tantly as Rev Jo Crosse over­comes tech­ni­cal is­sues.
