Movie Night – Midnight's Children – Sun 15th May
Neighbourhood Cinema movie night at CICCIC with drama and fantasy film ‘Midnight’s Children’. 7.00pm.
Spanning decades and generations, celebrated Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s (Earth, Fire, Water) highly anticipated adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s Booker Prize winning novel is an engrossing allegorical fantasy in which children born on the cusp of India’s Independence from Britain are endowed with strange, magical abilities.
Midnight’s Children follows the destinies of a pair of children born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment that India claimed its independence from Great Britain – a coincidence of profound consequence for both. “Handcuffed to history,” and switched at birth by a nurse in a Bombay hospital, Saleem Sinai (Satya Bhabha), the son of a poor single mother, and Shiva (Siddharth), scion of a wealthy family, are condemned to live out the fate intended for the other. Imbued with mysterious telepathic powers, their lives become strangely intertwined and inextricably linked to their country’s careening journey through the tumultuous twentieth century..

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.”
