After the sell-out success of its first movie, Penarth’s new All Saints Cinema Club has now scheduled another classic film for its October showing at All Saints Lesser Hall on Thursday October 19th.
This time the club is showing – at popular request – “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” starring Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Katharine Ross.
The movie – made in 1969 – was selected by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” and included it in the United States National Film Registry. The script – written by William Goldman – won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and tells the loosely true life tale of Wild West train robbers Robert LeRoy Parker (Butch) and Harry Longabaugh (Sundance) .
The featured song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head ” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David also won an Academy Award. The doors open at All Saints on Thursday Oct 19th at 19:00 hours (7pm) and there’ll be freshly cooked pizza and wine in the intermission.

Meanwhile Penarth’s 4-year-old publicly-funded £1,000,000 purpose-built digital cinema at Penarth Pier Pavilion remains empty and disused … as it has done for the last 8 months.
