Newsletter September 2023

New Season

Our second season of film shows in the Roysse Room at the Guildhall commences on September 28th with the contemporary release Rye Lane, director Raine Allen-Miller’s debut feature. It’s a romantic comedy that’s as in love with its characters as they are with each other and mostly takes place during one freewheeling day, as a ridiculously likeable couple get to know each other in their favourite part of London. The film is the kind of unapologetically fun rom-com that we don’t get enough of these days!

The screening will be charged at our new rate of £8.00, which includes £1.00 membership fee.

To access Abbey Cinema’s booking page for Rye Lane, please use the following link 

Then select  7.30pm    GUILDHALL  where you can make your booking.

More information about the booking process and our current programme schedule can be found by searching under ‘About Us’ on the ABCD website

For this screening, a member of our Font of House team will be on hand to assist anyone who wants to see the film but has not been able to book online.

A Programme Note for the film has been produced and is attached to this Newsletter-it can be accessed via the link at the bottom of the page, and provides a descriptive context to film you are about to see, plus technical credit details and trailers for forthcoming films. Please print the programme Note if you wish to retain a paper copy.

Reaction slips, for comments on the film and any other points about ABCD you may wish to make, will be available at the screening. Please use them freely-your comments and scores will be published on the Website in due course.
