Crosshaven Community Garden will be transformed into an outdoor Halloween cinema setting on Friday 21 October. Crosshaven Film Club will host this spooky evening and are advising patrons to wrap up warm and prepared to be chilled to the core.
The movie of choice is the 1999 mystery horror film “The Blair Witch Project” which tells the tale of found video footage from three students who’ve traveled to a small town to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer. Over the course of several days, the students interview townspeople and gather clues to support the tale’s veracity. But the project takes a frightening turn when the students lose their way in the woods and begin hearing horrific noises.
The Crosshaven Girl Guides will also be on hand before the movie to help with stewarding, fire pits, tents and cinema treats including popcorn, smores and hot chocolate. The group are raising money for their upcoming Irish Girl Guides International Camp IGGnite 2017. Other hot food available throughout the evening will include falafels and nachos, hosted in a popup stand by Denis Cronin of Cronin’s Pub.
Cinema goers are reminded to leave no trace at this event and to take all rubbish home after then event in order to keep our community space clean and tidy. In case of bad weather this event will be relocated to the Crosshaven Community Centre next door.
Tickets are €10 and are available from www.crosshavenfilmclub.com or Cronin’s Pub. The event is hosted by Crosshaven Film Club who are a not for profit organisation supported by access>CINEMA and the Arts Council of Ireland. The club show a variety of classic, arthouse and cinema screenings on the first Monday of each from October through to May each year in Cronin’s Pub, Crosshaven.
