Schools Screening: Wonder

Wonder

Tuesday 26 June, 10am •  1h53min, £3/free for teachers, English, Certificate PG, Suggested for P3-S1/2, Health and Wellbeing, Language, Moral Studies

We’ve had such great feedback from all the pupils and teachers who have come to see Wonder that we’ve added a screening for an end of school year treat!   

Wonder is the heart-warming story of August 'Auggie' Pullman, a young boy born with facial differences that have stopped him from being able to go to mainstream school - until now. Enrolled in fifth grade at Beecher Prep, he embarks on a journey of new friendships, battling prejudice and inspiring change. 

Tickets cost £3 per pupil/free for teachers. To book please contact Nicola Whyte on 01224 343513 or email nicola.whyte@belmontfilmhouse.com

Fairly certain that he's the only gay student at his high school, 17-year-old Simon Spier keeps his sexuality under wraps from his friends and family. Things get complicated when an anonymous classmate - 'Blue' - comes out online.

Love, Simon is a heartfelt and charming exploration of LGBT teenagers coming out in the modern world. 

 

Teachers – We want to hear from you!

Teachers Advisory Group meeting - Thursday 14 June, 4.30-5.30pm - FREE including refreshments

Belmont Filmhouse would like your input in shaping our schools programme for 2018-19.

We are establishing Teacher Advisory Groups (TAGs) for primary and secondary to help shape what we offer local schools, teachers and pupils. Whether its CPD sessions, film-making workshops, or bespoke screenings linked to your next topic; we want to create a programme that is both exciting and relevant to what you are studying in the classroom.

In return, we can support you with any projects in the classroom where using film can enhance the learning experience. 

The more we know about your topics and projects, the better we can programme films that really compliment your areas of study, and support you in using film as an effective way to enhance learning across the whole curriculum.            

The group will be a relaxed space where we can share knowledge, ideas, experiences and resources.  Come along for coffee, cake and chat – and even some comp tickets!

Our first meeting will be held at Belmont Filmhouse on Thursday 14th June at 4.30pm.  To book your place, please email nicola.whyte@belmontfilmhouse.com  

If you are interested in joining the group but cannot attend this meeting, please let us know!

 


Group Discounts

Kids at a screening

We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Belmont Filmhouse when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 01224 343 500

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which includes switching off mobile phones.

Projection Tours

Are your pupils studying cinema or making their own films? Would they like to meet the Belmont projectionist and learn what goes on behind the scenes at a cinema? We can arrange a tour of the projection room and to compliment your visit we also screen a selection of international short animations. The whole visit, including tour and films lasts approximately 1 hour and costs £100 Suitable for school and community groups of up to 33. Advance booking is essential.

Please note that, although we strive to make Filmhouse as accessible as  possible, this tour is of a non-public area of the building which is up a small flight of stairs.  For accessibility needs, please contact nicola.whyte@belmontfilmhouse.com
