ARCHIVE EVENINGS AT THE WHITE BUS CINEMA

WEDNESDAYS 15TH AND 22ND SEPTEMBER
7PM (DOORS AT 6:30PM)

THE OLD WATERWORKS

Limited seating.

Every Wednesday, at our White Bus Cinema in The Old Waterworks arts centre, we screen material from our extensive collection of ‘real’ film: 8mm, 16mm and 35mm. We start with an hour of shorts and documentaries and then, after a break, during which refreshments are available for purchase, we screen a full length feature film. This is a fun, volunteer-led evening, for which we only request a donation of £2 to help with our running costs. The feature will be announced one week before.

 

So, either come along and take a chance or, for the feature title and/or further information, e-mail david@thewhitebus.org.uk or call 07754 391163 no more than seven days before the show.

CULT NIGHT FILM SHOW 

FRIDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER
TICKETS : £5 : 7PM (DOORS AT 6:30PM)

THE WHITE BUS CINEMA, THE OLD WATERWORKS

Limited seating. Over 18s only

Alone in the Dark: A Century of Stalk and Slash, in association with The White Bus Cinema, presents this double bill of theatrical horrors.

 

EVIL LAUGH (1986)

Ten years ago an orphanage mysteriously burned to the ground, amid accusations of child molestation. It has been rebuilt, and a benevolent doctor turned pediatrician brings in a bunch of med-students to transform the place from an institution into more of a foster home. But where is the owner, and who is that lurking around??

plus CHEERLEADER CAMP (1988)

Attending a summer camp for cheerleaders, Alison is having bad nightmares. Her boyfriend has followed her, but seems more interested in the other girls. Then they start being found, brutally murdered... No wonder this slice of 80s sleaze is also known as Bloody Pom-Poms!

The Cinema Theatre Association is a hobby group for enthusiasts of cinema architecture. In March 2019 the Association’s Archive moved to Rochford, and volunteers have been busy setting up displays of cinema memorabilia – including an extensive display of Southend area material kindly donated by local cinema historian Roy Dilley.

So do join us to take a look back at a time when 'going to the pictures' was more than just going to the cinema!
