The Devizes Community Area Wellbeing group is pleased to launch the Devizes Silver Screen Film Club on Sunday 26 November 2017, when the first film showing will take place at Devizes Community Hub and Library.
Following a vote on social media and at various groups over the past couple of weeks, the film of choice to be shown at the first get-together will be the Michael Caine classic The Italian Job (1969 version).
The idea of the group is to help combat social isolation in older people in the Devizes Community Area. The showing will include a half an hour before the film starts to socialise and have a cup of tea and a biscuit, a short interval half way through the film to refill your teacups and half an hour to talk and decide on future films at the end of the showing.
Devizes Community Engagement Manager, Graeme Morrison said “This is a lovely opportunity for people who enjoy watching a film and also enjoy a chat over a cup of tea and some cake, to come and spend an enjoyable afternoon with like-minded people. The club is open to everyone so please come down to the hub on the day.”
The first showing will be free of charge, and anyone who would like to attend is welcome to come along to the hub from 1.30pm (Film starts at 2pm) on the day.
Paul Dyer of Driving Miss Daisy in Devizes has very generously offered to provide transport and pick people up from anywhere in the Devizes Community Area and bring them to the hub and take them home again after the screening for just £1 per head.
