After due consideration of the change in status for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the advice received from medical authorities and guidance from the Cinema for All central organisation, it is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the viewing days due to be held at both Bath and Lostwithiel.

The next viewing day will now be the Autumn one, date and location to be confirmed. We are hoping to bring this forward slightly from its traditional time of late November – whilst still avoiding school holidays – and to build on the hard work that had already gone into the Spring event. However, we haven’t considered this in any great detail at this point in time. We shall, of course, keep you updated.

For those of you that have already booked places, you will receive a full refund and this will take place over the coming days. For those that have paid for their bookings with a cheque, please contact, for the Bath event, Andy Hastie – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – and similarly for the Lostwithiel event, please contact Claire Marshall – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange cancellation/ re-payment. For those who have booked online, regardless of venue, please contact Chris Baker – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – with your bank details and a refund will be made.

Please accept our apologies for any disruption caused but we felt that this was the correct course to take given all the circumstances.

 The line-up of titles for Cinema for All South West’s Spring Viewings in Bath and Lostwithiel has broken all previous records by featuring no less than three new releases currently, or about to be, screened in cinemas.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire opened only a couple of weeks ago and is already attracting large and enthusiastic audiences on the South West’s art-house circuit.  So, the South West Group is delighted to be able to offer Community Cinemas in our area a chance to preview this exceptional Cannes Festival winner.  The Spring Viewing line-up also includes the Georgian drama And Then We Danced and System Crasher a powerful German movie, both scheduled to open in Bristol’s Watershed cinema later this month.  A triple coup for the SW Group!

On Sunday 22 March the Eastern event will be held at Widecombe Social Club, Bath.
On Sunday 29 March Lost in Film will host the Western event in Lostwithiel, Cornwall.
More details now updated in the  FSW-Newsletter-2020-03.pdf.

This includes all the details you need for the forthcoming viewing days in Bath and Lostwithiel together with booking forms.  All you now need to do is decide which venue you’d like to attend and then whizz your application forms – and payment – to Andy Hastie.  Please note that, because we’re after the most current films, the schedule is not absolutely buttoned-down and so includes a couple of standbys in case we don’t get our first choices.  Whichever we get it will be a great day and we hope to see you at one of the venues.
