Monday Matinee - Singin' in The Rain (U)

Selly Oak Constituency Neighbourhood Network Scheme is pleased to present Singin’ in the Rain’ (certificate U) as August’s monthly #MondayMatinee.

Starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, Singin’ in the Rain is an all time classic. It has Comedy, romance, great musical numbers, stars at their best and a fond recreation of a bygone moviemaking era: Singin' in the Rain has so much that it ranked a lofty 10th on the American Film Institute's 100 Best American Films list. "Gotta dance!"; sings star and co-director Gene Kelly. But the imperative of the film's storyline is gotta talk! Silents are giving way to Talkies - and a hoofer-turned-matinee-idol (Kelly) is caught in that bumpy transition, as well as his buddy (Donald O'Connor), prospective ladylove (Debbie Reynolds) and shrewish co-star (Jean Hagen) in a hilarious Oscar-nominated performance). Singin' in the Rain is pure singin', dancin', laughin', lovin', moviewatchin' joy.

Babies Welcome - The Greatest Showman (PG)

Join us for our pilot #BabiesWelcome screening of the award-winning 'The Greatest Showman’ - certificate PG. It’s a feel good movie, great singing and bright colours, that your baby (under 12 months only please) may or may not sleep through; but you’ll both certainly enjoy!

________________________________

'The Greatest Showman' is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life.

________________________________

Your community cinema experience is what you make it! To help make it a enjoyable one we are limiting the numbers to 30 adults to leave loads of room for you to put your baby down on their favourite play mat, or for you to walk about jiggling and settling your baby at the back or sides of the room if you need to. You can also bring in your buggies or car seats and leave them within reach. We’ll probably open the roof to allow a little bit of light in and the volume will be loud enough, but not too high to protect your little one’s tiny ears.

You are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks. Hot drinks on sale for 50p.

This is the first time that we have organised a film screening for parents and their babies, so we have been doing research on the approaches of other cinemas. We found this on the Everyman Cinema website (London), thought it was fun and also had some pretty good guidelines that we can all work to… (so, this is a complete rip off of their text):

Code of conduct:
–  If baby cries, you have a minute to try and sate him or her in your seat, at which point you should go to the end of the aisle and jiggle her. You then have another three minutes, at which point you should head into the lobby. 
– 
 Noisy snacks are encouraged. You deserve nachos, (mums) you’ve just had a baby. 
– Preferably, nappy changes should happen in the baby changing room, but during exceptionally interesting parts of the film a quick wet change is permissible. 
– It’s fine to keep your phone (on silent and with a dim setting) as chances are you will get distracted, miss critical movie moments and need to check the Wikipedia plot summary to keep up. 
– No shushing, sighing or rolling of eyes – we are all in this together!

Friday Feature - The Favourite (15)

Join us for May's #FridayFeature screening of the multi-award (Oscar, Bafta, Golden Globe) winning 'The Favourite' - certificate 15.


Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way. IMBD.COM

Monday Matinee - The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society (12A)

Join us for Stirchley Open Cinema's first Monday Matinee pilot on Monday 8 April in the cinema room screening THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY (CERTIFICATE 12A) (Link to trailer at bottom of post).

Lily James plays free-spirited journalist and writer Juliet Ashton, who forms a life-changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, during the aftermath of WWII.

“Don’t let the twee title put you off, as it’s a beguiling and affecting celebration of friendship, courage and the joys of reading, full of warmth and good humour.” The List

The cast includes some British actors including Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton.

This film is based on a book written by Cathryn McDowell. She writes..

“A correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey. When an idea for a book catches Juliet she goes to visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps along the way. This book is told by way of letters and as the reader, you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey, Amelia, Isola, Eben, Kit and Elizabeth. A beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost”.

Ten years after 'Mamma Mia!' grossed more than 600 million around the world, you are invited to return to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi in an all-new original musical based on the songs of ABBA.

Swing Screen - Stormy Weather

Swing Screen - Stormy Weather

This is the launch night of Swing Screen - a series of Film events at Stirchley Baths Community Cinema. 

After some teething problems with our new venture i.e. our first choice film (Cabin in the Sky) not being available to licence for showing in the UK, we will be showing an equally great 1943 Musical film around the theme of Swing Dancing.

Alongside Cabin in the Sky, 'Stormy Weather' is considered one of the best Hollywood musicals with an African-American cast. Both films are considered primary showcases of some of the top African-American performers of the time, during an era when African-American actors and singers rarely appeared in lead roles in mainstream Hollywood productions, especially those of the musical genre.

Stormy Weather takes its title from the 1933 song of the same title. It is based upon the life and times of its star, dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. 

Other notable performers in the movie were Lena Horne, Cab Calloway and Fats Waller (both appearing as themselves), the Nicholas Brothers dancing duo, comedian F. E. Miller, singer Ada Brown, and Katherine Dunham with her dance troupe. 

Our evening will start at 6.30 with a selection of film shorts around the theme of Swing dancing, followed by a short interval with an interactive session where we'll practice some classic jazz steps to get our brains and legs active before settling down to 78 minutes of our main feature film.

Tickets are available via the Gymcatch link at £4 each to cover the cost of film licencing and room hire.

Build Your Own Film Night Workshop - Flatpack Film Festival

Do you believe cinema can bring communities together?

A grant from the Local Innovation Fund is helping local residents set up Stirchley Community Cinema for the benefit of Stirchley residents and their neighbours. Are you interested in organising cinema nights for your street? Film screenings aimed at different audiences? Or creating relaxed and informal environments where everyone can enjoy a movie? Our small volunteer development team are running a series of pilots at Stirchley Baths over the next few months, so we can share learning, experiences and make sure that Stirchley Community Cinema is a sustainable operation. We are planning dementia-friendly and relaxed screenings, family cinema and cinema which brings local streets together. What ideas do you have? What kind of film nights or daytime screenings would you like to see?

Join us at a ‘Build your own film night’ workshop with Flatpack and Film Hub Midlands to find out how to get started. Learn more about Stirchley Community Cinema. Why not join our development team and use cinema to help bring more of our local communities and neighbourhoods together?

VENUE: Stirchley Baths
