FRIENDS OF HULL SCREEN
N E W S L E T T E R May 2009
In response to the many enquiries from FHS members, we can only say that we are still waiting for definite news of a transfer date to Reel, but it does seem, from our various meetings, emails and conversations with Council officers and with Mr. Suri, that negotiations are proceeding. Moreover, to date, the Screen staff are being treated fairly.
The equipment is already in place at Reel, Screen 2, and indeed was used for the recent Film Festival held there. We feel that this is a positive step.
On the Council website and our own, you will see that the transfer is scheduled for “some time in the summer” - we hope sooner rather than later.
Sorry not to be able to convey more concrete news at present, but we will, of course, keep you informed. Meanwhile, could members please submit any ideas and suggestions about special membership offers and ‘deals’ that we could present to Mr. Suri as and when the transfer is effected?
Very best wishes to all our membership and thanks for your support.
The final evening’s screening at Lincoln University was excellent, with a wonderful atmosphere and a feeling of shared values and enthusiasm; let’s sustain that!
