Movie W has acquired enough money for a new lease of life. This arthouse cinema, which had been hard-pressed for a long time, will give a free screening to mark the end of its stay in LA13.
The arthouse cinema's fresh start marks the end of a restless period. In early 2011, Movie W was told that it had to move out of LA13. At the same time, Wageningen UR decided to stop financing the cinema structurally. That started a long search for sufficient money for a re-opening. Besides Wageningen UR, others who have contributed to the required amount of about 100,000 euros are the Wageningen Municipality, the Prince Bernard Culture Funds, regional enterprises, Marin and individual film lovers.
Movie W will start screening films in September in its Wilhelminaweg premises. This Sunday, 18 March, it will bid farewell to its stay of almost ten years in LA13 with a free screening of the French film Angèle and Tony. This debut film by Alix Delaporte is a modern fairy tale with a rightful happy ending. Show times: 18:00, 19:30 and 21:00 hours.
