Our next Film Night – Cinema Now and A Man Called Otto *2nd June*

Friday 2nd June is our next film night at Stretford Public Hall and we are excited to bring you two films: Cinema Now and A Man Called Otto.

Cinema Now is a short, observational documentary. It looks at how the Covid-19 pandemic affected our cinemas. During the pandemic, cinemas across the UK were closed, not receiving government funding or support, and crucially, they deprived audiences of their cinema experience.

The documentary illustrates how the cinema is a place you can go to for an hour or two, put your troubles to one side, and immerse yourself in a large-screen film with family, friends, or whoever you choose. 

A Man Called Otto (Tom Hanks) is about a grumpy widower whose only joy comes from criticising and judging his exasperated neighbours. When a lively young family moves in next door, he meets his match in quick-witted and very pregnant Marisol (Mariana Trevino), leading to an unexpected friendship that will turn his world upside-down.

Both films are about experiencing some bleak and challenging times in life, but still managing to grasp something positive from them. 

Join us on Friday 2nd June, from 7 pm to 10:30 pm to watch both films. Cinema Now starts at 7:15 pm and A Man Called Otto will start around 7:30 pm.
