ChOC Update

Charlbury’s Own Cinema – ChOC - is now operational with two successful screenings already under its belt. Ladies in Lavender was a sell out in May, followed by a good turnout at The Magic Roundabout yesterday.

Thanks to all those who came, to Martin and the staff at The Bell, to the projectionists and staff at Chipping Norton Theatre, and to the volunteers in Charlbury for making it all happen.

ChOC is a non-profit organisation that aims to show a wide range of films to the people of Charlbury. The organisation does rely on volunteers and we would very much like to hear from any Charlbury citizens who would be interested in assisting with the organisation and screening of the films.

The schedule for the coming months as currently as follows:

• The Aviator (September): Multi Oscar winning biopic of filmmaker, pilot and millionaire Howard Hughes, directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale, John C Reilly, Alec Baldwin and Alan Alda.

• A Good Woman (November): 1930s Oscar Wilde remake starring Helen Hunt, Tom Wilkinson and Scarlett Johansson.

• Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (January): Tim Burton’s interpretation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka.

Please see local publicity nearer the time for exact dates, times and locations.
