Save The Cinema (12A)
February 5th - February 6th
Inspired by the extraordinary real-life events sparked by tenacious hairdresser Liz Evans (Samantha Morton), Save The Cinema illustrates how the resolve of a small Welsh town, inspired by the magic of cinema, was able to bring Tinseltown to their doorstep.
Hairdresser Liz Evans learns that mayor Tom Jenkins has secured a council meeting majority vote to replace The Lyric cinema in Carmarthen with a shopping centre constructed by his property developer pal. Supported by her husband David and three sons, Mark, Huw and Wynne, Liz takes up temporary residence in The Lyric, knowing that a wrecking ball cannot swing at the listed building while she is inside.
