Neighbourhood Cinema movie night at CICCIC with ‘Coming Home” 7.00pm.
It took the American film industry many years to make films about the war in Vietnam, apart from patriotic fare such as The Green Berrets. Released in same year as The Deer Hunter it looked at the conflict from a personal point of view and the stresses people experienced, not only by those who fought, but also those back home. Both lead actors won Oscars for their performances.
Sally Bender is the wife of a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. He is sent over to Vietnam, and Sally is alone. With nothing else to do, she decides to volunteer at a local veteran’s hospital, where she meets Luke, who went to high school with Sally. Luke was wounded and is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. When Sally begins to fall in love with Luke, she has to make a crucial decision about her life.

Why Watch Movies at CICCIC
If you love going to the movies but adore a homely atmosphere, perhaps even a beer or glass of wine then Creative Innovation Centre’s Community Cinema programme will bring a fresh new approach to local movie watching.
Registered as a community cinema in Paul Street, Taunton, the independent flexibility of screening films for audience numbers of up to 60 means an intimate setting for a great movie night out.
Andrew Knutt, director at CICCIC said “Movie goers can lounge in our sofas, grab a drink at the bar, even nominate movies for us to screen and even hire private movie screenings.”
CICCIC is a registered Neighbourhood Cinema with the British Film Institute No. 000921 and a member of Cinema for All.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
