Monday Movies returns to Caley’s Cocoa Café next week, giving customers the opportunity to enjoy archive film alongside their hot chocolate as part of the monthly screening event.
Caley's Cocoa Café, based in The Guildhall, was last year taken on by Norwich Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART), helping to keep alive another well-loved Norwich heritage brand following the Trust’s acquisition of Colman's Mustard Shop & Museum in 2009.
Each first Monday of the month, Caley's Cocoa Café will screen a montage of silent archive films, including captivating locally shot footage from Norfolk and around East Anglia, as well as from Normandy, France. February’s screening features footage from around Norwich, King’s Lynn, Diss and Cromer. Including films from the 1900s to the 1960s, witness colourful carnivals and local characters, as well as stunning clips of Royal visits.
The archive film compilations are a worthwhile legacy from HEART’s successful Interreg IVA funded Digital Heritage Project, which was delivered as a partnership with Rouen based film agency Pôle Image and UEA’s East Anglian Film Archive.
The screening events are free and take place on the first Monday of every month, from 10am to 4pm.
