Overwhelming praise for the sold out performance of God’s Own Country on Tuesday evening – “wonderful”, “brilliant”, “stunning” are just some of the comments heard after the screening. Victoria and Abdul also had sold out showings this week. If you still have not seen this very popular film, we have arranged another screening on Wednesday 22 November at 19:30. More details below.
This week starts with our Halloween double bill. You don’t have to book both films, but if you do, you’ll save £2 due to our special offer. We start at 19:00 with the subtle and extraordinary A Ghost Story, “a haunting meditation on life, loss, and mankind’s place in the universe” (Baltimore Magazine). Having explored the fantastic, we face sheer terror at 21:00, in the form of It Comes At Night, a “deeply unsettling post-plague chiller” (The Guardian) that Mark Kermode made his film of the week. The Arts Bar will be open before both films, and you’re welcome to contribute to the spine-chilling atmosphere!
Patrons who saw our screening of Land of Mine not surprisingly described it as “immensely tense” and “harrowing”, but it was also a rewarding film about a little-known WWII subject. The Odyssey was also enjoyed by those who saw it, some of whom could remember seeing Cousteau’s films on television.
Only a handful of tickets still available for God’s Own Country, so you will need to be quick if you want to book for this exceptional British debut feature. Victoria and Abdul is sold out this week, but again there are a handful of tickets for both screenings on Wednesday 1 November. There are still seats available for our Halloween Double Bill of A Ghost Story and It Comes At Night, and you can save yourself £2 if you book both films together. Read more……..
