Boston, 1978.

An IRA group with a suitcase of cash has crossed the pond to meet a dodgy arms dealer in a deserted warehouse to buy a stash of guns. So far so good.

But two of the minor players in this exchange have some unfinished business, and soon it all kicks off!!

Actually filmed in Brighton, Ben Wheatley has created gloriously choreographed mayhem, with his regular screenwriter Amy Jump providing witty exchanges for a talented cast (in sharp 70s costume) to sink their teeth into.

You’ll come out with a smile on your face (and John Denver in your ears)!

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…….

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………
