More classic films from the past are set to be shown on the big screen in Barnstaple thanks to a growing cinema club.

Barnstaple Classic Cinema Club has three more of the all-time great films pencilled into be showed at Barnstaple's Scott Cinema in August and September.

The screenings are open to the public, but require a minimum number of tickets to be sold seven days before the viewing, the number of which is determined by Our Screen, which supplies the film.

If the film doesn't sell the required number of tickets, it doesn't go ahead and those who bought tickets don't get charged anything.

There's fun for all of the family on Sunday, August 19, with a special screening of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. People needing to buy tickets before August 12 if the screening is to go ahead.

The Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Predator is pencilled in for Sunday, September 2, ahead of the release of the fourth film in the series, The Predator, starring Boyd Holbrook.

From action-horror the club turns to the quintessential romantic drama Dirty Dancing for a screening on Sunday, September 23.

Barnstaple Classic Cinema Club founder Ryan Martin said: "Watching these films are a constant reminder that they really don't make films like they used to.

"During the summer holidays we're aiming to screen something for everyone.

"For starters next month we're aiming to show E.T. in screen one on original 35mm film and in September we have the original Predator screening before the new 2018 Predator movie is released and finally Dirty Dancing.

"If all goes to plan and we sell enough tickets E.T. will be our first trip into screen one and it will be in its original 35mm format which would be amazing."

So far Barnstaple Classic Cinema Club has screened Back to the Future, Labyrinth, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Big Trouble in Little China.

It has also teamed up with local businesses, who all offer discount to people with e-tickets for the classic films.

Ryan added: "Each of the screenings has had its regulars who just like classic movies and going to the cinema but at the same time each one has had its fans of each of the films.

"The age range of the attendees is vast but it's great to see adults bringing their kids who seem to really enjoy the films even though their parents were probably kids when they saw the film the first time."
