A Fleetwood church will be screening the third of three vintage films at the end of this month.

The classic black-and-white films have been shown by the Emmanuel Church at the old Mount Methodist Church’s memorial hall, Seabank Road, on the last Monday of each month.

Organisers say the first two sessions, a showing of movie classic The 39 Steps, with Robert Donat, followed by A Matter of Life and Death, with David Niven, proved a big success.

Claire Chantrell, assistant pastor at Emmanuel Church, said: “We’re very pleased with the interest people are showing. It is bringing people in the community together.”

The third screening will feature a 1938 version of Pygmalion starring Leslie Howard, on Monday March 27, beginning at 1.30pm.

The church is now considering extending the short season.
