Swindon Film Society has been advised by Wiltshire Council that they will not allow the showing to go ahead on Friday the 18th March. Barabara Hoffbaur of SFS said ” The permanent entertainment licence for the Town Hall doesn’t include screening of films at the moment, so we have to apply for a temporary licence every time we want to show a film. The law says the application must be received 10 working days before the event. Unfortunately the application for ‘The Ghost’ didn’t reach Wilts CC until 9 days before, and they told us today that therefore they won’t let it go ahead. We quickly considered the possibility of rescheduling the film, but there isn’t a date that will work for us and the Town Hall until well after ‘The King’s Speech’, and by that time we’re well into lighter evenings, so it seemed to us best to just cancel it altogether.”
All presold tickets will be refunded as soon as possible. Posters and leaflets will be distributed to around the town to advise everyone
Don’t forget the next Cricklade Cinema show on Saturday 9th April – THE KING’S SPEECH – 118 mins, Cert 12A.
Colin Firth, Helena Bonham-Carter and Geoffrey Rush star in this fascinating, moving story about the relationship that developed between England’s King George VI, plagued by a nervous stammer, and his irreverent Australian speech therapist
