Subject: Morris film national release! (UK)
From: Tradsinger

Got this from 'Morris - a Life with Bells':


Dear Follower of Morris

GREAT NEWS!

Thanks in no small part to you, we have a deal with the Picturehouse/City Screen chain of cinemas to give Morris a national release from the 27th September 2009.

The film will open on the following screens on that Sunday, so save the date and let's make the 27th of September into St Morris Day!

The Little Theatre, Bath
Exeter Picturehouse
Harbour Lights Picturehouse, Southampton
Regal Picturehouse, Henley-on-Thames
Cinema City, Norwich
Phoenix Picturehouse, Oxford
Stratford on Avon Picturehouse
City Screen, York
The Cameo, Edinburgh
Belmont, Aberdeen
The Screen at Oxted
The Screen at Reigate
The Screen at Winchester
The Ritz Cinema, Belper

Other dates and venues will be added, but I wanted to let you know the good news straight away!

We could not have got this far without your help. We at Twist Films have been humbled by the support you have given us. Your emails, letters and comments on the petition have given us hope and laughter in our darkest moments. Your belief in the film has strengthened ours.

I would like to end with a comment from the petition:

"We will fight them on the Village Green.
We will fight them at the Villlage Fete.
We will fight them in the Village Pub.
And we will NEVER surrender!"

Thank you. This dance is for you.

Lucy

Sadly the only venues anywhere near Manchester are Belper and York - a prohibitively long way.

Read carefully before moaning, JohnJ--"Other dates and venues will be added, but I wanted to let you know the good news straight away!"--if you really want to see it, a couple emails and a phone call or two could help--

With all due respect, M Ted, Picturehouse and The Screen only have a limited number of screens .. I checked them out, and though there may be other dates and venues added, I would a hazard a guess that the additional number of locations may not be that great.

I'm delighted the film is on more general release, but I'm afraid it's hard to be more positive when so much of the potential audience is so disadvantaged due to the distances involved.

Some members of the side I'm involved in are planning to drive the 110 (non-motorway) mile round trip to see the film. I'm planning to join them. The cinema in Belper, Derbyshire is already taking seat bookings for the one night (so far) the film is going to be screened. I had an email from them a couple of days ago, they seem more than a little surprised how many people are prepared to travel distance to see the film!

Let us hope the film will be on less limited general release. I imagine it will take a chain of cinemas with sites more widespread over the country.

JJ

Here is a list of Picturehouses/City Screens.

So it looks as if there are still some useful additional possibilities from the list, notably (from my point of view) London and Cambridge. Especially if patrons of the cinemas request it.

Perhaps, but a good turnout at these cinemas is another step on the road to a DVD release

I have just emailed the Arts Development Service of Chelmsford Borough Council and asked how I would go about getting the film shown at one of the BC's theatres. They show independent fims, so maybe, fingers crossed.

It would be great to get it shown on other indepentent cinemas and I run a mobile community cinema in village halls etc and would love to have it but I think, if Sidmouth's experience is anything to go by, that it may be difficult to get hold of and this is down to the film company themselves probably. After all they are trying to sell it to a distributor and any distributor will want exclusive rights presumably.

Not quite as general a release as might appear: "The film will open on the following screens on that Sunday" suggested to me that it might be showing for the whole week.

But at Stratford-upon-Avon at least, it seems to be just a single screening at 1.30 on Sunday afternoon. And as Shakespeare Morris has a long-arranged paid booking that afternoon ....

The cinema at Belper plans to show it just on the Sunday - although they seem open to showing it on other dates if there's sufficient demand.

Anyone mentioned that it's on at the Dukes in Lancaster on 12th October? (I confess I bought my ticket before posting this so as to avoid the rush).
Various John O' Gaunt Morris members are threatening to attend in kit.

The website for the film says "On National Release from Sunday 27th September" - mind, I don't think "On National Release" means quite what it would for Harry Potter films, but it does sound as if it might be available in a few more places soon.
