So, we had a serious case of the gremlins. On 4th July we were all set to screen Beast (2017) and a technical issue got in the way. Quite a decent one, but thankfully people who want to watch movies are also extremely generous and gracious.
Here are the emails that were sent to all attendees…
“First of all I would like to say thank you so much for supporting this event. It was great to see a room full of people that wanted to see something a bit different.
I would also like to apologise that the event didn’t happen. I appreciate that you have put time aside to attend, made arrangements for childcare and so on. We have figured out what the technical issue is and are determined to find a solution, although that might require a change of venue. As mentioned, I will shortly process refunds.
The next step is to reorganise, because the film is excellent and deserves to be enjoyed by an audience. Once I have new details I will be in touch. Some of you will have booked for Funny Cow (1 Aug) and Phantom of the Paradise (5 Sep) and, at present these screenings will be taking place, albeit maybe at an alternate venue.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.”
Here is an update regarding the Clameur Du Cinema film screenings;
Following the cancellation of the 4 July screening of Beast (2017), I am pleased to announce that the film will be screened at 7pm on Wednesday 18th July 2018.
Despite identifying the technical problem that led to the event being cancelled we are unable to resolve it and so the location of all screenings will be changed to the Frossard Theatre at Guernsey Museum, Candie. It is a shame to leave the Digital Greenhouse, I have held events there in the past and found it to be a brilliant location. If you are looking to hold a business, creative, media or tech related event I would urge you to contact the Greenhouse and find out how they might be able to accommodate you. You can find more information at www.digitalgreenhouse.gg
The move to Guernsey Museum means that changes have had to be made to our other planned screenings due to prior bookings. Apart from Beast, future screenings will now take place on the last Wednesday of the month rather than the first. Funny Cow will screen on 29 August and Phantom of the Paradise will screen on 26 September. If you have already booked for either of these screenings and cannot make the new dates please contact me for a full refund otherwise your booking will remain in place.
On the plus side, the Frossard Theatre has a larger capacity so there will be 20 more seats available at each screening and having the last Wednesday of the month as our screening slot means that there will be a film on Halloween!
I will shortly send out direct invites regard all our screenings. Please let me know if you wish to be removed from the mailing list. You can always find information about Clameur Du Cinema events at www.cdcgsy.com/screenings
Thank you for your support.”
…so, Beast will be screened, onwards and upwards.
