First, just a reminder that it's film night with the Oswestry Film Society tomorrow (Tuesday Nov 7, 7.30pm). HUGO is a charming film with a good story, great cinematics, a notable cast, and that magic of entertainment on two levels - for adults and younger people to enjoy equally. You'll leave the cinema with a warm feel-good factor. More details on the Oswestry Film Society website as always. Tickets available in advance or on the door.
Our update last week on Kinokulture's possible future has got you going. Good, we all want to retain a cinema in Oswestry post the owners Ruth Carter and Ian Garland's retirement next year.
Following our update, a number of you have been in touch with Ruth and Ian with offers of help. Great, but please - while keeping your enthusiasm burning - hold off until the OFS or they can update you on the actual formation of a core support group that'll hopefully lead the charge to take Kinokulture on, as it's the group that'll need your backing.
Moves to make Kinokulture a sort of community scheme (not a "charity" as we might have mentioned) are being pursued.
As we said in the last newsletter, there is still a lot to be done and the future is far from certain. But there ARE things going on behind the scenes.
