The vintage romantic comedy film ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ is set to be screened in Cumbernauld town centre this month as the latest instalment of Cornerstone House Centre’s free movie treats for adults.
Following recent showings of Mamma Mia!, Calamity Jane and That Touch of Mink, Cumbernauld Family Hub will be beaming the 1952 Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds classic on a large cinema screen on Friday 27 May 2022 at 1.30pm at Cornerstone House (1 Esk Walk, Cumbernauld, G67 1BZ).
Singin’ in the Rain portrays a light-hearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, showing performers caught up in the transition from silent movies to sound films. It has been accorded legendary status by contemporary critics, and is often regarded as the greatest musical film ever made and one of the greatest films ever made
As with previous Movie Days, places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and must be booked in advance by emailing email@example.com. 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.
In 2021, 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 the cost of living rising all the time, 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.
“Following successful Movie Days for adults in February, March and April, we are pleased to be back with our latest film showing, and it’s certainly one for the nostalgics out there.
“As well as Singin’ in the Rain, other films being planned for screening at Cornerstone House this year include Last Vegas, Some Like It Hot, Pillow Talk, Marigold Hotel, High Society and It’s a Wonderful Life.
“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.”
The movie fun is not just for adults though, with free cinema days for children and families also being planned for the upcoming school summer holidays. Indeed, these are just part of a range of activities and sessions being scheduled for families at Cornerstone House during term-time and school holidays this year.
