Film season comes to an end

Hobson Published: Thursday, 11th October 2018

The final film in the ‘Film Up North’ season, Hobson’s Choice, will be showing at Warrington Town Hall on 12 October.

The David Lean classic is the last of three great British films with local connections screened by CineWire and Warrington Borough Council.

CineWire is a non-profit, community film club bringing pop up screenings of high quality cinema to local communities. Before the films, guests will be given the opportunity to explore areas of the Town Hall they may never have seen.

Tickets are £7 per adult and £5 per concession (under 18s, students and seniors). Free tickets are available for carers accompanying guests with accessibility needs. The event starts at 6.30pm.

See for tickets and see if you can spot a Warringtonian connection from our industrial past in this delightful comedy.
