OUR 40th ... FILM'S 40th

'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' was released in the UK 40 years ago, in 1978. This is a rare cinema-style screening of a film from the time when blockbusters still showed real ambition. Vicar Rev. Edward Collier said [pic] ‘We are delighted the Peckham and Nunhead Film Festival have chosen to show this at our fantastic centre because it is a great film and perfect for all the family. We have planned this unique event because we wanted to make something very special and fun that families could attend for free.

This event is part of the Copleston Centre’s 40th year anniversary year, celebrating 40 years at the heart of the local community, serving local needs and providing a great local venue. We all hope for a full house!’

Please note that the film will start at 8pm and late-comers may not be admitted. Entry to the film is free and so you will need to arrive early to ensure admission, as numbers are limited.
