Here at No6 we aim to offer a broad and balanced programme, some films of course will have a wide appeal and some will not but will still be valued by some sections of the community; we take great care to balance the two. We are of course delighted to give audiences the chance to see films that would not otherwise be shown in our local area, and for those who choose to see more mainstream films at No6, we hope to give them the opportunity to see those films in an extraordinary venue with a licensed bar and a more personal touch than the plexies.
Good news! For the month of September we have received some funding to help cover the cost of dockyard security which has become an increasing burden on our finances. Coming in at a whopping £220 per night, we need to sell a lot of tickets to cover this charge, approx 70 is now our break even point. There are so many upsides to being in this amazing location but the non-negotiable cost of security is its downside. In return for the funding, we have been asked to gather some responses to this survey...So if you visit us in September, we would be really grateful if you could fill it in. We all know there is no such thing as a free lunch! We will be posting the link in each of our weekly emails for the rest of September. If you are in for a film please find it in your heart to give it a go.
Sin City on Thursday 8th September is the first film in our season Drawn to the Big Screen. Artist Kremena Dimitrova will introduce the film, show us some of her work and explain how the movie has influenced her.
Our Friday film also has an artist at its core - Eric Ravilious: Drawn to War.This film will convince you that Ravilious should be considered as one of Britain’s greatest landscape painters along with Turner and Constable.
For all you Whovians out there, our Saturday night Dr Who Double Bill will surely be the event of the decade! Dr Who and the Daleks and Daleks Invasion on Earth 2150 AD will be a very special treat, especially as you will get two films for the price of one. Please arrive promptly as the first film will start at 7.00pm so we can complete the screenings in a timely fashion i.e. before we have to pay extra security!
