FLIC (Film Launceston In the Community) will relaunch in winter 2011 with the opening of a fantastic new cinema in the renovated town hall.
Originally opened in 1851, the town hall was beginning to show her age and so £1 million has been spent on this much-loved part of the town’s heritage. A major part of the works has been to provide Launceston with a cinema so residents can start enjoying movies again.
The debut season will kick off on Friday, January 7, with the screening of The Moon Shines Bright, co-directed by local filmmaker Lawrence McNeela. While the society have yet to finalise their 2011 programme, it will definitely include the premiere of Launceston community film project’s take on the town’s history The Curse of Ennui.
It is likely that a varied mixture of Hollywood blockbusters and arthouse, indie flicks will make up the rest of the programme, ensuring there really will be something for everybody.
Tickets for films will be just £5 each, £4 for under-16s and over-60s.
