as well, obviously, as buyers looking for a bargain!

Chiddingfold Village Hall Cinema has become very popular and is playing to capacity audiences. On Thursday 1st May they are showing American Hustle but I think this is a little too early for this month’s edition. However on Friday 16th May they are screening the hugely successful 12 Years a Slave. Doors open at 7.30pm, the film starts at 8pm. Running time: approx. 129 minutes (+ 15 minute interval). Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northrup & Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps, it won the Oscar for best picture. Beautifully filmed and with several fine performances, this is a 11:37 Pageand 1 unflinching depiction powerful of the brutalising and corrupting

effect of slavery on all aspects of society. Tickets cost £5 (£3 under 15’s) on the door, or in advance from Chiddingfold Post Office. Season Tickets are also available from both locations. These are only £25, and are valid for six entries to the cinema – that’s a saving of £5 on buying the tickets separately. No expiry dates, no small print. It also saves the Village Hall money too!

For further details, or if you are interested in joining as a volunteer, please contact Matthew Lacey on 01428 683120, or email cinema.admin@chiddingfoldhall.org.uk.
