Community cinema chairman resigns

17:00 16 February 2012

Honiton Community Cinema set to continue despite chairman’s resignation.

The chairman of Honiton Community Cinema has stood down due to work commitments.

Marianne Harman, who helped to establish the project, told the Midweek Herald that she no longer has the time to put into the community cinema.

“I have stood down because work commitments mean that I don’t have the time to put into the project any more.

“However, this was all planned some time ago and everything is in place for a thriving community cinema.”

Secretary Peter Corke is standing in until a new chairman can be found.

She added: “Everyone has worked hard and given up a lot of their own time to make it a success.

“It’s a shame to be going at such an exciting time, but I know that the committee who have worked so hard to bring cinema to Honiton will take it on to new pastures.

“We are lucky to have had a huge amount of support from people in the town and I hope that more people will come and see what the community cinema has to offer and, of course, offer their own ideas.”

Regular screenings take place in the Mackarness Hall and future films to be shown include Oranges and Sunshine and The Woman in Black.

Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris will be the next big screen offering from the cinema, which will be shown on Friday, in the Mackarness Hall.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Tickets are available at Honiton Toy Shop or Honiton Tourist Information Centre.

They can also be purchased on the door.
