Steeple Ashton Films The July/August 2014 edition of the Parish Magazine carried an article about the film nights saying 'Use it or Lose it'.
Since January we have twice lost money due to poor ticket sales (less than 50 tickets sold). We do not carry a large reserve, as the enterprise is run by volunteers, with profits going to St. Mary's Preservation Trust and Friends of Keevil School (FOKS).
Therefore we will be showing 2 more films and then reviewing whether to carry on or stop. If anyone else has new ideas and some energy and would like to take over the running of the films then please get in touch with either Gill or Lynda on the numbers below.
SATURDAY 18th October 2014 7.30pm. A Promise
A romantic drama set in Germany just before WWI and centered on a married woman who falls in love with her husband's protégé. Separated first by duties and then by the war, they pledge their devotion to one another.
Starring Rebecca Hall, Alan Rickman and Richard Madden.
FRIDAY 14th NOVEMBER 7.30pm Belle.
Costume Drama. The mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral is raised by her aristocratic great-uncle in 18th century England.

Tickets are £6, available 4 weeks before the film night from Steeple Ashton Village Shop. Doors open half an hour before the film starts.
