Friday, 13th September
Our first film of the season is on 13th September. First Man, (2018 12A), the story of the monumental moment of human history and the man who was to become the first man to step on the moon. The exhilaration and danger of space exploration set against a backdrop of the sacrifices a grieving Armstrong made on his journey into the history books.
Friday, 4th October
For our next film on 4th October, we remain in the 1960s with Green Book, (2018 12A), the story of a working-class Italian-American bouncer who becomes the driver for a world-class pianist on a tour of the Deep South. Based on a true story, the odd couple bond as they travel through the states on a road trip beset with humiliations and prejudice. Brilliant performances from both Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, are what make this road movie something special.
Friday, 25th October
The 25th of October brings another Oscar winner, The Favourite. (2018 15). A jet-black comedy/period drama set in the 18th century court of the gout-inflicted Queen Anne. Full of intregue, Anne’s court is rife with scheming and manipulation, and serves as the perfect background to the competition that develops for the Queen’s affection between her oldest friend and lover, and a young kitchen servant. A rich, dark and sumptuous film, the three female leads (Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone) are deliciously nasty. At the very least you’ll come out of this with some interesting insults........
Thursday, 7th November (10am) – Ballerina (Into Festival screening)
The Into Film festival is a free, annual, nationwide celebration of film and education for 5 - 19 year olds.
Friday 8th November - Stan & Ollie (2018, PG)
This film tells the story of Laurel and Hardy in the twilight of their years, the golden age of Hollywood behind them and a gruelling tour of Britain’s music halls ahead. This is a gentle, poignant tribute to the double act with spot-on performances from Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly. Special mention too for scene-stealer Nina Arianda as Stan’s wife Ida, adding some caustic wit to the charming humour. A truly lovely film, it will give you a warm glow on a cold winter night.
Thursday, 14th November - Les Aventures de Spirou & Fantasio (Spirou & Fantasio's Big Adventures) (Into Festival screening).
Thurs 21st November – The Breadwinner (Into Festival screening)
