On Monday we had the first ever Rotunda cinema at the Lee Jones centre in Kirkdale. Over 40 pensioners and guests came and enjoyed the screening, developed and hosted by the young people from Rotunda college.
We had adverts for local places of interest, trailers for classic films such as ‘The Quiet Man’, the ABC minors song, a raffle, oranges and ice-cream, and of course popcorn. Milkman Tommy himself came along to watch his own films by local film-maker Tim Brunsden.
The price of entrance was 1p or a clean jam jar.
The Small Cinema in the Community is a Re-Dock project, supported by Liverpool City Council.
