This memory came from Olivia James, Community Cinema Coordinator for Black Country Touring.
In summer 2016, just a couple of months into the Community Cinema Project, we undertook an ambitious event with Finchfield and Castlecroft Community Association at Bantock House in Wolverhampton to put on an outdoor screening of La La Land. Despite being in the light night summer months and with weather being, well, British (rain-upon-rain-upon-rain) over 200 of Wolverhampton’s citizens turned out for a magical night under the (wet) stars. They brought picnics, prosecco, soft drinks, joy and umbrellas – it really was a magical night.
