The word is definitely getting out there that Honiton has a top class cinema with comfy seats, smiling staff, delicious ice creams and drinks from the bar that can be consumed whilst watching a fabulous movie with your friends or family.
Another great thing is that because Honiton Community Cinema initially brought cinema to the town and the Beehive, it still feels like a friendly event within the community, which of course it is and due to this everyone feels very welcome and happy to turn up on their own.
TRIP community transport service are also providing lifts for the elderly or infirm, who cannot easily get to The Beehive, for the 7.30pm showing of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Friday 3rd July. This arrangement is due to the generous sponsorship by Co-Operative Funeral care that recognised the need for this service within the town.
There are some great films coming up over the summer, the cult classic, Blade Runner (The Final Cut), The Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren, Avengers:Age Of Ultron, and Minions to name a few!
Our live events are also increasingly popular and we are still trying various acts to see what the good folk of Honiton like. On Saturday 4th July we have another fabulous Flamenco evening with soulful singing and absolutely captivating traditional Flamenco accompanied by David Nash on Spanish Guitar, with Tapas and supper all for £20!
Live band, Must be Mad will be playing traditional dances and some sequence dances at the Beehive Tea dance on Friday 10th at 2.30pm and Hazel and her team of volunteers will be serving the scrumptious afternoon teas. Then on the 11th we have the eagerly anticipated return of Sweet Honi N’ Soul for their concert of popular, rock and soul songs with some brilliant soloists accompanied by a live band and horn section.
The following Saturday 18th July everyone is invited to bring along a little something from their family archive, it could be an object, or a photo, something that means something to them, just to share with the artists at the end of the show. ‘Archive’ is a charming piece of dance theatre telling tales from each of the performer’s family histories ranging from Grandma’s 30’s cruise and the ship’s log to Granddad’s tools and Granny’s favourite recipes. For only £5 & £3 concessions, it is well worth a try!
