An exciting new venture for Seaford is opening its doors for the first time on the 21st of September 2012. Seaford Community Cinema will show selected films at The Barn Theatre in Steyne Road (Saxon Lane car park) with two or three screenings each month and a total of seventeen films in the first year. The plan is to offer a friendly, sociable cinema experience which I imagine will be similar to that offered at Hailsham Pavilion. SCC is a non-profit making organisation and events will be staffed entirely by volunteers.
The very first film, All In Good Time, will receive Gala Opening treatment for its screening. The director, Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls, Made In Dagenham), will be in attendance and will introduce his film personally. This is likely to make the event very popular and The Barn Theatre only seats 130 people, so I would definitely advise booking your place in advance!
All In Good Time is the screen adaptation of the stage play Rafta Rafta by Ayub Khan Din (East Is East). The gentle comedy of inter-generational differences stars Reece Ritchie (The Lovely Bones) as Atul and Amara Karan (The Darjeeling Limited) as Vina, a newly married couple who find themselves living with his parents. Overshadowed by meddling family, nosy neighbours and a community seemingly built on gossip, the young couple struggle to make a go of their marriage. The film also stars Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me, Anita And Me).
