The cinema club will run again after the summer holidays. There were some initial problems with the audio description equipment and we will ensure that these have been rectified. We are also working with the Storyhouse in Chester and hope to have a club running there shortly.
The management at Vue cinema, Cheshire Oaks, are in agreement that something had to be done to help visually impaired people to have the same enjoyment as others.
The management agree that many visually impaired people miss out on visiting the cinema and felt that providing our members with headphones to enable everybody to enjoy the whole of the picture through audio description was a great idea.
They have set aside a cinema room and a morning for us especially so that all our members can enjoy the film.
This months film is Eddie the Eagle, please see the synopsis below. If you would like to come to the cinema please contact me as soon as possible so that I can arrange transport. Best Wishes
Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael "Eddie" Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself - even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude. - Written by 20th Century Fox
