A NEW home has been found for Ryde Film Club.

Forthcoming screenings will be shown at the theatre at Ryde Academy, after the club moved from the Commodore Cinema.

The new venue will be used monthly, starting with the scheduled screening of Jean de Florette on Monday, March 25.

The club said: "Ryde School is situated on Pell Lane and is easily accessible on foot. Those who need to come by car can use the school car park.

"For the first time, we can now offer disabled access to screenings, and there are two designated disabled parking pays near the entrance to the theatre.

"Signs will help everyone get from Pell Lane and the school car park directly to the film theatre entrance, all on one level."

Jean de Florette is a period drama based on the novel by Marcel Pagnol, set in rural Provence. It stars Yves Montand, Gérard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil, and the plot is based on two farmers who try to trick a newcomer out of his property.

An introductory talk is at 7.45pm, and the film starts at 8pm.
