Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Hill 1969

Summer’s End Soirée 2
Sunday 2 September 2012
ReCycle Bikes Heeley

It didn’t rain for the outdoor screening (was a beautiful evening in fact, with a glorious view of the full moon and stars), the cowboy beans and freshly pressed juice were delicious, and nobody fell out in the Shotgun Cycle Derby!

This was our second collaboration with ReCycle Bikes and another fantastic turn-out. This screening was also part of Scala Beyond, a national celebration of community, independent and DIY cinema, linking us up with other cool and quirky film lovers across the land!

Here’s what local newsletter Heeley Voice said about the event:

“For the second year in a row on the first Sunday in September Ash Tree Yard,  Heeley became a mini festival with an outdoor cinema screening. Pop-up community cinema, Magic Lantern Film Club, joined up with ReCycle Bikes to show 60s classic, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid.  The wild west theme was played out with a Shotgun Cycle Derby to keep everyone entertained, and there were ‘cowboy beans’ to fill bellies along with freshly pressed fruit juice from local food project, Abundance.  The film started as the sun went down, and we followed the exploits of Butch and Sundance under the stars.  It was a great atmosphere and a good get-together to end the summer.”

Big thanks to everyone who made this happen, especially all at ReCycle bikes, Heeley Development Trust, Sheffield’s great cycling community, the fabulous apple-pressing gang at Abundance and everyone who came along. Already planning another one for next year…
