THIS summer will see the Save the David Lean Cinema Campaign going "on the road" with films being shown at three festivals across the borough.

As part of the Croydon Heritage Festival, the campaign is putting on a French-themed evening on Saturday, June 15, at 7.30pm at the Shirley Community Centre, in Shrublands Avenue, Shirley.

A week later, in keeping with the Purley Festival's live music emphasis, the 1963 film Monterey Pop is being shown in the Parish Church of St John the Baptist centre in Dale Road, Purley, starting at 8.15pm.

And finally on Wednesday, July 10, Terence Malik's To the Wonder will be screened at the Harris Academy South Norwood in Cumberlow Avenue, as part of the South Norwood Arts Festival.

The screening starts at 7.30pm.

Campaign chairman Adrian Winchester said: "Our partners in Shirley, Purley and South Norwood have all been good friends to the campaign, helping us to raise our profile and grow to a membership of over 700.

"We are therefore delighted to be doing something for them in return."

All events are free.

To book seats, e-mail savedavidlean@gmail.com or telephone 020 8656 0168.

The campaign was started to oppose Croydon Council's plans to close the 62-seat David Lean Cinema at the Clocktower in Katharine Street, as part of its 2011 cost-cutting programme.
