FENLANDER: Hit film Made in Dagenham to launch new Chatteris Community Cinema

THE hit film Made in Dagenham will launch the Chatteris Community Cinema when it opens at the town’s King Edward Centre on February 5.

Tickets (adults �4, under-16s �3) will be on sale at the centre tomorrow (January 29), 10am-noon, and on Monday and Wednesday (January 31 and February 2), 6-8pm.

Made in Dagenham is a dramatisation of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination.

The cinema plans to screen at least one film a month, possibly two. On March 5, it will be holding an “Academy Awards Day”, showing Toy Story 3 in the afternoon and The Social Network in the evening..

The cinema is one of the new attractions at the King Edward Centre, which has recently had a �430,000 revamp largely funded by Fenland District Council and Chatteris Town Council. For information, visit www.chatteriscommunitycinema.co.uk
