Silver Screen at the Magic Lantern Film Club

MagicLanternFilmClubLogoMagic Lantern Film Club is a mobile cinema unit with its own screening equipment and licensing to show films. They show cult, classic and sometimes forgotten films to different audiences in places like parks, theatres, bars and historic buildings.
Cinema triggers memories that can reaffirm identity and encourage social connections and so their latest idea is a Silver Screen Programme, showing films in care homes for residents who are not able to get out often. The films would be chosen by older people themselves. And the screenings would be attended by film students from Sheffield Hallam University and retired volunteers, making this a truly intergenerational project.
The Magic Lantern Film Club are currently seeking backing for their idea.
