The Cluny presents…. CLUNYMA. A new community event aiming to enrich people’s lives with the magic of film that we are hoping to make regular. Lockdown has taught us all what it feels like to be isolated but for many this loneliness and isolation is part of every-day life and we believe a community cinema is one of the best ways to engage everybody together! Films have played an important role for many during the pandemic as they offer an experience different from your own, allowing us to escape from our personal struggles and anxieties. Cinema attendance has shown to have amazing effects on mental well-being because of its mental simulation visually and the collective nature of the experience. All of this is the cherry-on-top to film’s importance as one of the most accessible forms of culture and its power to educate, move and connect us in an age where we are arguably disconnected more than ever. At the Cluny, we want CLUNYMA to be an accessible platform of this art form that will give everyone a chance to step through the looking glass of imagination and strengthen our community ties at the same time.
Tickets are £5 and doors will open at 6PM. Group seating is available up to 6. Dogs welcome. Since we will still be in a state of restriction there will be limited capacity. Interest in this initial event is vital for us to continue screening more films in your favourite Ouseburn venue! Questionnaires will be available to give your opinion on the type of films you want to see and what you would like to see incorporated into the event. This double bill is heavily male led so a future event focusing more on the work of women and non-binary folk relies on your community interest to make this happen. Have your say! Create the film event you want to go to! Be a part of your community!
