Needing a break from the Christmas shopping while the kids are at school? Cornerstone House Centre’s upcoming November Movie Day for adults could be just the tonic you need.
Following recent showings of High Society, The Greatest Showman, Pillow Talk, Some Like It Hot, Singin’ In The Rain, Mamma Mia!, Calamity Jane and That Touch of Mink, Cumbernauld Family Hub will be beaming Breakfast At Tiffany’s on a large cinema screen on Friday 25 November 2022 at 1.30pm at Cornerstone House (1 Esk Walk, Cumbernauld, G67 1BZ).
The classic 1961 romantic comedy, starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, follows the tale of a naive, eccentric cafe society girl who falls in love with a struggling writer. The award-winning film, acclaimed for its portrayal of human desire for companionship and love, is widely recognised as one of cultural and aesthetical significance.
As with previous Movie Days, places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and must be booked in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state in your email how many adults will be attending and if you have any special requirements.
Cumbernauld Family Hub, supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, provides a fresh and innovative family support resource for the Cumbernauld area, incorporating a range of activities which create interesting and unique personal development opportunities for local families.
The Family Hub has supported over 300 parents and children since its establishment in 2017, and has been successful in helping create bonds between people facing similar problems and building bridges that assist understanding and interaction in relation to family development. It has also helped families to set goals and promote confidence that their aspirations can be achieved.
Last year, as part of Cumbernauld Family Hub, Cornerstone House was fitted with a contemporary digital cinema projection screen which can be utilised by organisations and individuals across Greater Cumbernauld for community purposes.
Movie Days for children and adults have been a successful part of the project during over the past five years. Karen Lawson, Project Coordinator for Cumbernauld Family Hub at Cornerstone House Centre, commented:
“With families feeling the effects of inflation and ever-rising prices, a trip to the cinema is unfortunately not as affordable as it used to be for people living in Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and surrounding villages, especially with the nearest cinemas being located in Glasgow, Coatbridge and Falkirk.
“That’s why Cumbernauld Family Hub is seeking to recreate authentic cinema experiences for local citizens with its new state-of-the-art screen and movie equipment this year.
“Movie days for adults have been hosted every month since February, with many parents, carers, friends and individuals participating in the fun and friendly cinema events at Cornerstone House.
“As well as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, other films being planned for screening at Cornerstone House in the future include It’s a Wonderful Life, Last Vegas and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
“Tickets must be booked in advance but are free of charge, providing parents on lower incomes with an opportunity to come along to an organised community event without the pressures of financial burdens.
“We look forward to welcoming adults for what we anticipate will be an entertaining and enjoyable day facilitated in a friendly and informal environment.”
Meanwhile, parents can also tap into other key resources provided by Cornerstone House Centre as part of Cumbernauld Family Hub. Examples of free activities currently provided include Bookbug, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and Living Life to the Full.
