HONITON: Cinema set for Beehive
Thursday, 15 May 2014
Honiton Community Cinema is to hold screenings in the Beehive from July, with new equipment soon to be provided to support events. The society will screen three films at the Beehive during July and August, with a view to moving in permanently later in the year. Beehive company directors confirmed this week that the cinema’s current programme will run until the new equipment is acquired, after which point more regular screenings will be introduced together with live streaming. Hi-tech equipment, costing around £30,000, is being lined up to enable the society to stream live broadcasts, and organisers hope the move will attract more visitors to their events. Councillor Peter Corke, chairman of the cinema committee, said: “We will be screening three films at the Beehive over the summer and we will see what happens after that, but we certainly want to make the move. “Almost 200 people turned out for our recent screening of ‘Philomena’ but the Beehive is a 300-seat theatre and we would hope to get a few more visitors than usual. We can only hope it goes well.” Launched in 2011, the society currently meets in Mackarness Hall for monthly screenings, and has recently showcased films such as ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Midnight in Paris’. The next event will be a screening of ‘The Butler’, which takes place on Friday, May 30th at Mackarness Hall at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.
