Vue Cinemas has announced a major fundraising initiative to benefit schools across the UK. The scheme’s a little confusing though, so pay attention at
Here’s how it works. Vue puts on a free screening at one of its local cinemas (like the one in Exeter or Plymouth). Teachers and pupils decide how many seats they would like, set their own ticket price and sell tickets accordingly. Because Vue is not charging anything for the screenings, all proceeds will go to the participating schools for new equipment purchases, redevelopment and dinnerladies and stuff. Okay, so it’s not that complicated.
But don’t get too excited cos the first screening won’t be an exclusive preview of Tarantino and Rodriguez’s Grindhouse but will be a preview of the dull pig flick Charlotte’s Web. Still, it’s for a good cause, etc.
If your school is interested in participating, visit the myvue site and register your vital statistics. And for all of yous expecting to sit through two hours of Charlotte’s Web, here’s the Grindhouse teaser as consolation.
