Gather film buffs for a fun night out

An opportunity to flex your film knowledge this week at the Electric Palace. Coming up on Wednesday 22 May you’re invited to pit your wits against local film fanatics at a special film quiz at the Electric Palace cinema.

What makes the quiz particularly special is that it’s been entirely created by the Electric Palace’s Young Electrics group of 16-25 year olds from the Hastings area, who have been learning about film programming, including screening and promoting World, British and Independent cinema titles. (H.O.T covered the group’s launch in December 2018).

“At the Film Quiz you’ll see how the Young Electrics group’s passion for creating immersive and entertaining film events really shines through, and how much they’ve developed as a team since the group began,” says Annie Waite, Marketing Manager at the Electric Palace cinema.

“We know you’ll enjoy a really entertaining evening. There are some cracking questions, with different rounds covering a broad mixture of movie genres and eras. This is a quiz you’ll be able to enjoy whether you’re a real film nerd, or are more of a blockbuster movie person. Come along if you can to help support our developing programme – and there’s both prizes and kudos to be won!”, Annie continues.

The Electric Palace is an independent community interest cinema in Hastings Old Town that aims to screen a wide range of films for the local community to share and enjoy. It received a Film Society of the Year Awards accolade in 2016 in the ‘Best Programming of the Year’ category.
