Saturday 10th October 2015 – “Metropolis” is a sell-out

METROPOLIS1Over 350 people came to Christ Church Southgate to hear our organists David Hinitt & Adam Dickson improvise on David’s “home made” organ console to Fritz Lang’s classic film “Metropolis” as part of an event run by Talkies Community Cinema on October 10th.

After last year’s inaugural film event (Phantom of the Opera), news of Dave and Adam’s talents had spread far and wide – we had to find more chairs once the pews filled up!  People brought their own cushions for support during the two and a half hour film and great fun seems to have been had by all, as this photograph shows!

Thank you to Fr Chrichton for running the raffle and to the Christ Church Association for organising the bar. A special thank you to Mark Brinkley from Bennett Walden Estate Agents for sponsoring the event and to David Williamson, Steve Foster and John Sollis from Talkies Community Cinema. Thanks to all those who attended and helped to raise over £1,000 for the organ appeal fund.

If you have ideas for films we might show in the future, please let us know!
