Epping at the Movies

When I'm not teaching, practising or studying yoga, one of the other activities that is currently absorbing a lot of my time is the new not for profit, Epping at the Movies project.

I heard about this on social media last autumn and through one of my students, got in touch with Suzie who is running the project.

My hubby and I are both film lovers and watching a movie or three is one of the things we both like to do together (especially if it's too cold or wet to get up the allotment).   I offered our services and Suzie made us a welcome part of the group planning the Sunday 5 March Launch Day at the Epping Hall on St Johns Road.

As a result, hubby and I have been busily sorting out ticket agents (you can buy tickets from me at any of my classes and at the Epping Golf Club, Theydon Oak Pub and at the Epping Library), testing out the screening equipment (him not me!), and generally spreading the word to our local Epping Community.

I've also been happy to sponsor the matinee, which will be Some Like It Hot (with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) .

The tickets are £5 for adults and £2 children, so please spread the word with anyone you know in the Epping area so we can make the launch day a big success and provide a foundation for lots more, regular screenings in the future.

Many of you know that I'm a big believer in the benefits of community and I'm hoping this project will be another opportunity for neighbours to get together and enjoy a movie (and food from The Little Kitchen) and to get to know one another in a new and different setting.

After the first screening, the project will be looking for more volunteers to help with future events, so if you'd like to volunteer and get involved, just email eppingatthemovies@gmail.com and let us know you're keen to help.
