Plaza Cinema to Hold Special Screening as part of its 20th Birthday Celebrations

Plaza Cinema has been showing a selection of specially chosen films this year to help celebrate its 20th birthday – but next month will be extra special as  the screenwriter of the chosen film will be one of the guests and will even hold a question and answer session afterwards!

The community venue turns 20 in July and manager Martin Fol is showing 20 films across 2017 to help celebrate.

On Sunday, June 11th, at 8pm, the Plaza will show 2004 comedy-drama film Millions, with screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce scheduled to attend and answer questions from fans.

The writer, who lives in Blundellsands, created the screenplay for the film while it was actually being made by adapting his previously published book of the same name.

The novel Millions was subsequently awarded the Carnegie Medal, which is a British literary award that annually recognises one outstanding new book for children or young adults.

The Plaza Cinema officially turns 20 on Tuesday, July 18th and more details on event plans will be revealed closer to the time.
