SULLY

If Tom Hanks did not exist, Clint Eastwood would have had to invent him. The pair work brilliantly together as actor and director to tell the story of Flight 1549 which, after an encounter with a flock of geese, was forced to land on the Hudson River. Hanks portrays Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger - a man of great skill, courage and determination.  (USA 2016)

THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK

We love them, yeah, yeah, yeah - and with archival footage like this, you know it can't be bad. If you wanted to see The Beatles on tour you’d have to be have been around between 1962 and 1966 - now this film gives us all the chance to enjoy them in their prime and on the road. Restored footage, behind the scenes scenes - great music! Yeah Yeah Yeah!  (UK 2017)

LION

A tremendously moving performance from Dev Patel is at the heart of this incredible true story. Five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from home and family. Eventually he is adopted and moves to Australia. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories and Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family.  (USA / INDIA 2016)

BULLITT

Steve McQueen is cool as ice in this thrilling cop opera that also happens to contain one of the the greatest car chases ever filmed. San Francisco provides a suitably mountainous race track… but there is also a tense story in which McQueen has to go it alone against the might of the mafia. No CGI, no special effects - it’s all real.. They really don’t make ‘em like this any more!  (USA 1970)

WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION

Director Billy Wilder and author Agatha Christie are aided by a cast of stage and screen legends. Tyrone Power is the man accused of murder, Charles Laughton is the colossal legal brain defending him and Marlene Dietrich is the woman who tells the truth, part of the truth and mostly not the truth. Red herrings served a la Christie, entertainment value whipped up by Wilder - gripping stuff! (USA 1957)

The Second show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

HIDDEN FIGURES

The True Story of the Forgotten Women Who Helped Win the Space Race. This entertaining film documents the accomplishments of NASA’s black “human computers” whose work was at the heart of the country’s battle to put a person on the Moon. NASA’s scientists were about to find out that the finest mathematicians weren’t necessarily white and male!

(USA 2017)

The Third show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

SCHOOL FOR SCOUNDRELS

A bit of harmless merriment for Christmas. Alastair Sim runs a “life skills” academy, Terry Thomas and Ian Carmichael are his students and Janette Scott is the object of all their endeavours. Based on the Stephen Potter “One Upmanship” books, this jolly film features such stalwarts as Irene Handl, John le Mesurier, Hattie Jaques and Hugh Paddick. (UK 1960)

Showing with an equally Merry Full Supporting Programme

The Fourth show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

ALL THE PRESIDENTS MEN

Based on the real-life story of the two reporters who wouldn't give up on the story of the Watergate break-in, this movie is as gripping as any detective story. It won bucket loads of awards for its totally authentic approach to the painstaking, and often dangerous, uncovering of truths many powerful people wanted to suppress. Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman live their parts as the sort of reporters that would give D. Trump nightmares  (USA 1976)

The Fifth show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

THEIR FINEST

In the 1940s,When the blitzkrieg bombs were dropping, somebody had to keep morale up. Gemma Arterton plays a lady who lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need "a woman's touch" and finds that Sam Claffin and Bill Nighy are looking for much the same thing... A delightful comedy set in strange times  (UK 2017)

The Sixth show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

DEATH AT A FUNERAL

When families gather for funerals they tend to talk of the past… but in this rollickingly good comedy there are quite a few details of the deceased’s past they’d rather not publicise. Directed by Frank Oz (of Muppets fame) this can only be described as a disrespectful romp of a sort only the British would enjoy. Not to be confused with the American remake which died at the box office. (UK 2007)

The Seventh show of our 2017-2018 Subscription Season

MYSTERY MOVIE

We have no idea what we’ll show in April 2018. This programme is compiled a full year ahead so we’re going to wait to see what fantastic films emerge closer to the date - it may be brand new or it could be a restored classic - we’ll let you know as soon as we know!
