About Harrold Film Nights
We buy or rent the DVDs but since we are showing to members of the public, we must pay a licence fee that is dependent on the size our audience.
We work with various distributors and independent film companies but have an established relationship with Moviola, a distribution group that arranges licences for organisations such as ours and has affiliates all around the country. This makes it much cheaper for us to obtain films
Since starting audiences have enjoyed a variety of superb films including The Artist, The King’s Speech, Black Swan, Life of Pi, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, It’s a Wonderful Life and Skyfall. Harrold Film Nights provide an opportunity for local people to watch these films with their family & friends at the Harrold Centre at a very reasonable price.
Harrold Film Nights has fast become a popular local event. Villagers can get together, watch a good film on a big screen in the comfort of Harrold Centre. This is particularly helpful for those who either find it difficult to get to one of the big Cinemas, or can’t afford their prices or simply prefer to watch films locally with friends, family & fellow villagers. There is always a bar & drinks are allowed in the Hall in plastic glasses. These are very enjoyable, social village occasions. We sometimes provide something different. Occasionally the bar will serve very reasonably priced, appropriately named cocktails or a special beer. We often sell ice creams. We encouraged appropriate dress for our ”black & white” theme at The Artist film night and for our “Bond Evening” at the screening of Skyfall.
Profit is not the main motivator: tickets are normally priced at £4 (£3 for concessions). Occasionally, when we serve extras such as mulled wine & mince pies, we add a pound to the prices. For the screening of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, we arranged for wonderful Indian Snacks to be served at the end of the film, prepared by the team at Harrold’s Indian Cuisine.
All ‘profits’ go towards the Centre Redevelopment Fund and we have already raised almost £1,000 (nearer £1,500 if you include grants).
