Movie day a winner at Blyth

The Blyth Bowling Club has said its recent movie afternoon was a success, despite only being able to host a limited number of people due to COVID restrictions.

They held a screening of the movie RAMS at their local cinema on Sunday, November 15.

Club secretary Maureen Eime said the movie event is a regular part of the calendar at Blyth as a result of its ongoing success as a fundraiser.

“The cinema let us hire the facility at a reduced price,” she said.

“It seats roughly 80 people, but due to COVID, we were only allowed to have 50, so we didn’t make as much money as we usually do.

“On this occasion we put it on a Sunday afternoon and the normal price is $12, but we charged $15 this time and we had raffles and stuff like that.

“The Candy Bar was also open and everyone had a really good afternoon.

“In previous years we have had it on a Friday night and we have given the guests finger food and a beer or champagne before the film and we would charge $25 for that, but we liked the Sunday afternoon, because we didn’t have to mess around with food and stuff like that.

“The film was RAMS, which is a popular one that is still running at the cinemas.

“We were able to sell the tickets without any trouble.”
