Dear Chester Film Society Mailshot Subscribers
It is with great regret that we have to announce the decision not to move ahead with the planning of a 2020-21 Film Season.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty with respect of the restrictions on events in public venues, the Committee met to discuss the likelihood of putting on a 2020-21 Film Season, either in full or part. The expectation of ongoing physical distancing restrictions for some time would make it untenable to screen films in either of our two venues of St Mary's and the Grosvenor Museum. We also need to feel that public confidence in attending cinema venues has been restored before we can consider presenting film screenings again.
Instead, we hope to continue our relationship with Storyhouse with the 2021 Chester International Film Festival in March 2021 and will start planning for that later this year. With nearly 600 attendees, the 2020 Film Festival at Storyhouse was our most successful yet, so we hope to do even better in 2021! Details on this will follow once they are confirmed.
Of course, this means that there will be no Tuesday film nights until September 2021 when we will return with our 50th Season! But please keep your Tuesday's free - we will be back!

In the meantime we will continue to keep in touch via our mailshots, and you can also keep in touch via our websiteFacebook or Twitter.

Hoping to see you all soon
Mike, on behalf of The Committee
