Seven years ago four newly single-again women living in Llangennith started a Cinema Club as a part of their "new lives". We were not aiming to make a profit - just to enjoy watching good films with our friends and neighbours in this village and the other villages nearby.

We show an up to date quality film on the second or third Saturday of each month (except August). We choose the film and the Community Cinema Group do the technical bits and show it for us. In fact the projectionist is the very calm and patient Wayne John, who used to run the wonderful little cinema in a railway carriage "La Charette" in Gorseinon.

We have over 500 members now and had our largest audiences - over 100 - for The Calendar Girls, Motorcycle Diaries, Mamma Mia and Touching the Void.


Entry is open to all - just pay £1 for life long membership at the door and then £4 entry fee.
Liquid refreshments are available in the kitchen, where much chat goes on before the performance.

An amazing and inspirational Documentary

Tracy Edwards, Jo Gooding and the crew as themselves

in

 'Maiden' (12A)

They were told NO because they were women.

This is the true story that proved everyone WRONG 24yr old Tracey Edwards, once resident of College Mill  Llangennith became skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the 'Whitbread Round the World Race'

 in 1989. The crew included another local Jo Gooding as cook and on board photographer. The original footage makes it totally authentic. There is excitement, humour and pathos, the film grips you from start to finish!


'Inspirational, moving, emotional! Women of all ages should see this film and believe they can accomplish anything!

More excitement!! Jo Gooding will be introducing the film and hosting a Q&A session afterwards.
