Burnham film fans flock to first UK screening of Kevin Costner movie

A cheque for £500 was handed over to BARB President Neville Jones and Chairman Alan Miller by the cinema's directors, Pat and Beryl Scott as the audience and cinema staff watched on

Film fans flocked to Burnham-On-Sea's Ritz Cinema on Sunday (October 8th) for the UK's first screening of a new sea-rescue blockbuster shown in aid of the charity that runs the town’s rescue hovercraft.

Scores of Kevin Costner fans attended the gala screening of The Guardian, raising hundreds of pounds for BARB.

Afterwards, a cheque for £500 was handed over to BARB President Neville Jones and Chairman Alan Miller by the cinema's directors, Pat and Beryl Scott, as the audience and cinema's staff watched on.

Mr Jones thanked both Pat and Beryl for their "super support", adding that all the funds would go towards the ongoing maintenance of BARB's two hovercraft and training of its volunteer crew.

The film is due to be released across the country on October 20th by Buena Vista International (UK), but was screened especially early at Burnham's Ritz Cinema by arrangement with the film's distributor.
