Chorley Empire Community Cinema have a busy couple of weeks ahead and would like you to join them for two special occasions.

On Thursday 25th November, they're showing the Frank Sinatra film Pal Joey, about a man torn between good girl Linda (Kim Novak) and Chorus Girl Vera (Rita Hayworth). The classic musical romance features the song "The Lady Is A Tramp" and is part of the Afternoon Classics strand, meaning entrance is just £2 and Cream Teas are on offer for £1.

As an extra incentive to come, BBC Radio 4's Film Programme will be visiting the event to interview the Chorley crew and audience for a future episode. Doors open at 2pm.

On Saturday 4th December it's a  double bill for a double celebration. Marking 100 years of film at Chorley Little Theatre, and launching the 25th Anniversary of the group formerly known as Chorley Film Society, there's an 80s classic and a bang-up-to-date movie.

At 6pm, Marty McFly goes to the 1950s in the newly-remastered Back To The Future. This was one of the last films shown at Studio 1-4 on Bolton Road before it closed in September 1986.

Then leaping forward, it's another Robert Zemeckis film as the stylish A Christmas Carol is shown at 8.15pm. A motion-captured digital animated movie, this 2009 release sees Jim Carrey playing Scrooge and all the visiting Ghosts.

Both films are in digital HD on the big-screen, and the evening will also include complimentary food and a glass of wine. Doors open 5.30pm and entry is £4.
