Following the lock-down the Society has decided to open on 23rd October with “Look At Me”, a French film released in 2004.
You are invited to renew your subscription for the reduced price of £30 per person for the season. Payment to Paul Tranter by cheque (Rowan House, Queens Street, Hook Norton OX15 5PH) or online to the HNFS account, account name Hook Norton Film Society, sort code 30-90-42, account number 01402445. We won’t be accepting cash payments for the time being.
The continuing prevalence of Covid-19 means we have to organise things a little differently. Please note: doors open at 7.30pm and the film starts at 8pm. The conditions of hire of the hall restrict our numbers to 40. Given that we had a total of 93 members in 2019-2020, we have to restrict attendance to paid-up members only, on a first-come, first-served basis. You need to have booked by the Wednesday before the screening to be sure of a place. We also have a new reservation number as Di Henderson has kindly offered to take bookings: her number is 01608 737 311. If you are a very regular attender you can ask to be automatically included – but remember to tell Di if you’re NOT going to be there!
Chairs will be set out forward-facing with suitable spacing (although of course families can sit together). The hall will be well ventilated and will operate a one-way system, with entrance through the usual front door and exit through the side door on the right near the kitchen. We won’t be providing supper for the time being. Wine will be available, by the bottle only, not by the glass. Bring your own glass if you prefer and a snack such as a sandwich, although we have drawn the line at popcorn and crisps.
We are presuming that attendees are double-jabbed, symptom-free and have not recently been in contact with anyone infected. Please don’t attend if you have any signs of illness, even a cold. Masks are not obligatory but it might be an idea to wear one when moving around.
