Dear supporter
Due to exceptional sales, we have programmed a further screening of I, Daniel Blake, for 7.30 on 14 December.  Recently, a record number of children in the audience for Swallows and Amazons really enjoyed the film, so a repeat screening scheduled for 28 December is the perfect opportunity for families who missed it the first time. See film schedule

Last Wednesday's screening of The Bolshoi Ballet – marking the 60th anniversary of half the film being shot at Croydon's Davis Theatre – was a spectacular success, prompting some of the most enthusiastic feedback we have ever received. Sincere thanks are due to Carole Roberts (who brought the film to our attention and presented a fascinating 15-minute talk) and also to our generous sponsors Croydon U3A and Peter Francis. In view of requests received, we are looking into the possibility of arranging another screening, but this will be dependent on gaining permission from the rights-holders in Germany.


Volunteer “Arts Café Bar” Manager

The Save the David Lean Cinema Campaign CIC seeks a manager/organiser to act in a voluntary capacity to set up and run a small café bar in the Croydon Clocktower. We plan to open the bar one hour prior to each of our film screenings, i.e. 3 – 4 times a week.

Our ideal would be a person with some catering experience, good organisational skills, and who is reliable and trustworthy. If you think you can help, more information can be found on our website.
