Summer 2022 Programme
Foxlowe Films are delighted to follow up their spring season with a new one for the summer and hope that with declining Covid rates our audiences will bounce back. It’s been a difficult time for us all but we do now have an exciting new programme to tempt everyone out. It includes the usual mix of big box office successes, such as Stephen Spielberg’s West Side Story, The House of Gucci with Lady Gaga and Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, along with others that are less well known but nevertheless compelling. One such is the latest offering from acclaimed Spanish director Almodóvar, Parallel Mothers, about two very different mothers meeting in a maternity ward. There’s an uplifting and amusing story, The Duke, about the theft of a famous painting; a romantic comedy-drama from Norway, currently at the top of the independent film charts, The Worst Person in the World, and another chance to see the poignant and powerful Sound of Metal that we had to postpone due to Covid. See the listing below for full details.
Doors will open at 7pm to enable audience members to find seats whilst maintaining distance between groups.
Films will start as usual at 7.45 pm. We prefer booking online – if a film is not sold out we will sell tickets on the night. Online booking closes 24 hrs before the film screening. Please book the number of tickets required for your household or the group you are attending with. Advance tickets are available in the cafe as well as online.
Our bar is available and drinks can be taken into the film. We will follow current government guidance – at the time of going to press audience members are not required legally to wear masks during the performance (however we would encourage mask wearing, particularly when moving about). Tickets can be booked on line at wegottickets.com, most easily accessed via the green tickets button in the listing.
10 years of Foxlowe Films
We have screened hundreds of films and sold thousands of tickets since we started with an initial pilot season in 2012, with Gerald Mee providing equipment and his projecting skills. We cannot thank you enough, our tremendous audience who have supported us since those early days when we had little in terms of resources. None of this would be possible without the amazing dedication of our band of volunteers. Some of the original coordinating group are reducing their input and new volunteers are always welcome. If you fancy joining our team (and seeing a film for free!) – then do get in touch or talk to us at a screening.
We started with a meeting in Peter Kent Baguley’s living room in January 2012. We were given a brief to go away and work out how we could screen films in Leek. Within a few weeks we had corralled Gerald Mee to help us, worked out the licensing arrangements, and programmed a short pilot season of 5 films to test the waters. We sold out the first screening of Jane Eyre on 28th February 2012, with 70 of you coming along, setting us off on a firm footing and we’re still here – 10 years later. Our coordinating group became firm friends and had a lot of fun has been had long the way!
