Afternoon Classic Cinema Club
Alongside our regular last Friday of each month evening screenings, Leigh Film Society CIC runs an Afternoon Classic Cinema Club, prompt 1pm start, in the Derby Room of the Turnpike Centre in Leigh. Again, run entirely by Volunteers, we hold screenings of classic & older films for a more mature audience. Our club is partly funded by Age UK Wigan.
We open our doors at 12.30pm on the last Friday of each month and the film is usually started at 1pm. We ask for a donation of £2 per person per screening on entry and members are encouraged to bring food & drinks of their own. We do however provide hot tea & coffee as well. The club has a very informal atmosphere.

In June 2017 we launched the new Tyldesley Classic Cinema Club at The Pelican Centre. This is monthly every last Monday at 1pm.
Both venues are wheelchair friendly. There are ramps outside the building and there is a lift for accessing the first floor of the building, where we meet. Where possible we have all films with subtitles for the hard of hearing.
The venue has a Loop System for the hard of hearing. During Afternoon Classic Cinema Club, there is usually a member of staff from the venue who will be able to assist you.
We do occassionally have a speaker who will address the club before the film is shown. Topics and organisations vary. If you have a suggestion that you would like to make, please speak to Elizabeth who is always on hand at all screenings.
We operate a Dementia friendly policy at our Afternoon Classic Cinema Club. All Classic Cinema Club volunteers have completed the Dementia Friends training.
