Spend Saturday night at the movies with Gloucester Guildhall


Gloucester Guildhall has announced the reintroduction of Saturday night film screenings for the first time in over three years. From May, Saturday nights will be added to the growing film schedule with a screening at 7.45pm, and to celebrate this welcome addition, Gloucester Guildhall is giving eager cinema goers the opportunity to purchase tickets at less than half the price they would normally pay. Throughout the month of May, the first 20 people to book tickets for each of the four films being shown on a Saturday night will pay just 2.50 per ticket.

From the launch of its Focus Group and Film Club, to an increase in the number of films programmed each month, The Cinema at Gloucester Guildhall has been flourishing over the past six months. Film programmer Chloe Homer says, We feel like were really getting it right for the people of Gloucester at the moment. Mays programme in particular is incredibly strong, with high quality world cinema such as Le Havre and The Kid With A Bike running alongside quirky British films like Hunky Dory and more mainstream titles such as Salmon Fishing In The Yemen and the Oscar-nominated Albert Nobbs. Were really trying to provide something for everyone, no matter what kind of film fan you are, and the good news is that it can only get better as the cinema gets more popular, so keep supporting your local cinema and watch this space!

Films you can catch for the special price of 2.50 are This Must Be The Place on Saturday 5th (Sean Penn with eyeliner and big hair), Hunky Dory on Saturday 12th (Minnie Driver attempts musical Shakespeare in a Welsh secondary school), Salmon Fishing In The Yemen on Saturday 19th (Ewan McGregor and lots of fish) and Albert Nobbs on Saturday 26th (Glenn Closes Oscar-nominated turn as a woman posing as a man in 19th century England). Full details of these and all the other films in the programme can be found on the Guildhall website and tickets for all films throughout April and May are on sale now. 2.50 tickets are only available to purchase over the phone or in person at the Guildhall box office; all other tickets are also available online.
