As we wait for some kind of government timetable to plan any of our future ELFs film evenings (in whatever form is safe), the Alte Gerberei in St. Johann stands empty and therefore slowly slipping more and more into debt.
The MuKu team have been working hard behind the scenes to try to save this drastic situation and have started a Crowdfunding campaign to keep the wolves at bay – for now.
Check it out at www.muku.at.
You can also help by a direct donation at:
or you can simply tell everyone about this – good old fashioned word of mouth still works, with social distancing of course 😊.
We are really looking forward to when we can safely spend a cinematic evening together once again – It’ll be a real celebration – Cheers! ELFs

Depicting Lowry’s life in the Lancashire town of Pendlebury in the 1930s, when he lived at home, caring for his widowed mother, devoted and lonely. It’s not easy, she is disappointed in him and is totally dismissive of his art – only liking a painting when a new neighbour of “the right class” expresses an interest in it.
Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall steal the show in this low-key tale of one of Britain’s most beloved artists and the life that he endured waiting hand and foot on his elderly mother.
