Free film cafe opens in Haworth's West Lane Baptist Church
A film cafe catering for older movie lovers – as well as children and their parents – begins in the Worth Valley next week.
Haworth Film Cafe will show two films a month throughout the year, at the village’s West Lane Baptist Church, and admission is free.
Run by Haworth Film Society, the venture will see silver-screen fans enjoying a classic movie at the church between 1pm and 4pm on the second Monday of each month. There will be time for audience members to enjoy refreshments and reminisce.
The fourth Monday of each month will feature a film for parents with pre-school children. This will run from 12.30pm to 3pm, and parents are invited to take their own lunches.
The screening for adults is on Monday, and will feature Singing In The Rain. The first junior instalment is Toy Story on January 28.
The initiative is being backed by money raised through a national scheme called Health Bloom, part of the Health Lottery.
Elderly people living in Oakworth have been offered assistance to attend screenings. Oakworth Forward has teamed up with Keighley Community Transport to offer a free shuttle service to over-50s.
Oakworth Forward chairman, Jackie McGinnis, said: “In 2013, we will be offering residents the opportunity to apply for small grants to kick-start projects that benefit the community.
“We wanted to demonstrate what a difference a small sum of £100 can make, so we decided to cover the costs of the return journey on a minibus from Oakworth to Haworth Film Cafe to put a smile on a few faces in the colder months of the year.”
The bus will pick up at 12.10pm at Jubilee Garden (opposite Slaymaker Lane), 12.20pm outside Holden Hall and at 12.30pm outside the Golden Fleece.
