Cinema comes to St George’s

Screening of the Third Man at St George's Garrison Church 10th September 2016

St George’s was used as a venue for the Charlton and Woolwich Film Festival on Saturday 10th September 2016. The Third Man was screened. The aim of hosting the film was to raise the profile of St George’s within the local area and the screening attracted an audience of about 40 despite the incelement weather. 

Gavin Eastley of the CWFF introduced St George’s, and the work of both HOLTOP and the WGCT to the audience. Footage of the Old Contemptibles with St George’s intact was shown before the main screening.

Hot drinks, and other refreshments were offered by a pop bar run by the Yawning Donkey. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event.
