This is our last scheduled feature before we take a summer break. Whatever the outcome of recent developments regarding Phillip Road Centre we will be back in September showing movies here in Wivenhoe, if not at Phillip Road then at another suitable venue. Meanwhile we will be involved in campaigning for Essex to reverse their decision to shut the Phillip Road Centre down completely whilst its longer term future is decided… we believe that this is an unnecessary waste of a very useful community building. So we encourage all our supporters to add your name to the petition, sign up to our mailing list if you havn’t already done so and keep an eye open for news updates on the website, Twitter and Facebook pages. And please contact us if you want more information of would like to get involved. We look forward to seeing as many of our local audience as possible next Saturday for what is a really engaging and entertaining movie ‘Quartet’ and join us in celebrating another really diverse and popular season of features at Moving Image.
QUARTET [12A] 98 mins 2012 UK
Directed by Dustin Hoffman and set in a home for retired musicians, with a stellar cast including Maggie Smith, Tom Courtney, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon.
