We are hopeful that we can soon look forward to our next season of films in early 2022.
Biggar Little Cinema would like to thank all our supporters for their patience and understanding during these unusual and difficult times. We hope to have further information in our next edition of this newsletter.
In the meantime, please enjoy another in our series of movie trivia!
Movie Trivia - Some Like it Hot
One of our most popular films was the classic Some Like it Hot, which we screened in April 2016.
In preparing for the filming, when Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon first put on the female make-up and costumes, they walked around the Goldwyn Studios lot to see if they could 'pass' as women. Nobody seemed to notice them.
Then they tried using mirrors in a public ladies room to fix their makeup, and when none of the women using it complained, they knew they could be convincing as women. The rest, as they say, is history!
Our 2019/20 Season of Films
Just to remind you of the wonderful films we showed last season, we had another excellent line-up - an Oscar and BAFTA-winning drama, two Oscar-winning true-life stories, a British biographical comedy-drama, a charming animated adventure and a wonderful British comedy. Please click on the posters below to read more about each film.
About our Films
We conducted a detailed audience survey at the end of our first full season, asking viewers which of our films they had especially enjoyed, and the type of film they would like to see in the future.
We have been informed by these comments, and have borne them in mind when selecting titles for our screenings. Hence, our objectives are to choose up-to-date films, many of them award winners, with a wide audience appeal, as well as films which we believe offer something a little unusual, and hence of special interest to cinemagoers.
Biggar Little Cinema was founded in February 2011, and is run as a community cinema on a non-profit basis. As a not-for-profit organisation, our aim is to disburse all the surplus from our screenings as charitable donations, to local organisations and Rotary projects. So far, with your help, we have raised over £30,000.
We also aim to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema.
Our films are shown in high-resolution digital quality, and projected using the latest digital equipment on to a full-size cinema screen. To match the exceptional quality of our picture, our sound is Dolby stereo using high definition loudspeakers. The Corn Exchange is well-known as an excellent venue, with very comfortable cinema-style seating and a cosy atmosphere. A full bar is available both before and after each screening, with a lounge area for relaxing and chatting with friends. All in all, Biggar Little Cinema offers a perfect location - and all proceeds go to support local organisations and Rotary projects.
