On Saturday the 5th April, Hope for Belper took over the Ritz Cinema for the afternoon.Over the previous few weeks the Head Teachers of the five Primary Schools in the town assisted us by distributing 100 free tickets to pupils and their families, for a matinee showing of ‘Evan Almighty’.
These tickets were a gift from the Christians in the town and were part of the celebration of Easter.
On the day the auditorium was alive with happy chatter and smiles as folks turned up to enjoy the screening. Free drinks and cakes were provided by members of the Hope team and as they say ‘a good time was had by all’.
Our thanks go to Amanda the Ritz’s owner for arranging things with the distributors and being so accommodating to the team on the day. Also thanks to the Head Teachers for helping us distribute the tickets.
