The live-action retelling of Disney’s animated classic.

Belle (Watson), a beautiful bookworm, lives a tranquil life with her father – until a chain of events leads her to a mysterious old castle, occupied by an enchanted beast and a party of animated household objects!

Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s magical staff and learns to look beyond the beast’s monstrous exterior.

News Update 05 June 2017

Free Fire last week had a very mixed reception from our audience – it didn’t appeal to some, but others were full of praise! Two patrons wrote to say that they “absolutely loved” the film and “found it exciting that the David Lean is keeping up to date with modern audiences and selecting films which are both fresh and innovative”. So – we can’t please everyone all the time, but we do our best to showcase what we think will appeal to as wide an audience as possible.

The “masterly and complex” Graduation attracted small audiences but feedback indicated that supporters found it impressive and absorbing, with one praising the unexpectedly “up-beat ending”. Romanian cinema has become increasingly admired, so it’s worth watching out for future work from their talented directors. Read More……….

Latest News – 28 May 2017

We’ve had another week of diverse films, in addition to the challenges posed by the Arts Bar being cut in half to make way for a new door into the Braithwaite Hall! Tuesday’s absorbing The Lost City of Z was followed by the long-awaited return of theatre to the David Lean’s screen, via the Globe on Screen Twelfth Night. The evening screening virtually sold out, and feedback indicated that delighted supporters thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with much laughter heard throughout.

Saturday’s audience for Beauty and the Beast – one of the highest-grossing films of 2017 – was surprisingly small, but patrons very much enjoyed an enchanting story that one felt was even better than the 1991 animated classic. So, Tuesday’s 14:30 screening can be highly recommended as a half term treat. Read More…….

Latest News 21 May 2017

Please note that at least until the end of this month, our Arts Café Bar service will be repositioned due to work to create a new door from this area into the Braithwaite Hall. This is possible despite the Hall’s Grade II listed interior, because the door will be positioned where one existed many years ago. An additional exit, for fire safety reasons, will make it possible to accommodate more people, making a wider range of events viable in this venue.

During this work, we still expect to be able to provide refreshments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, via a table placed nearby. We also plan to open before Thursday’s 11:00 screening of Twelfth Night. It’s possible that we may have to temporarily move our Box Office at some point, so don’t be alarmed if you come to buy tickets and don’t immediately see it! Read More………
