May Babes in Arms Screening

Our Monthly 11.00am Babes in Arms screening

Bringing a baby is not compulsory but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium during this screening! 

Intending patrons should note that the lights will not be fully dimmed during the screening and that people may need to move around.

This Month we present:

MOonlight (2016, USA) Cert. 15

Director: Barry Jenkins
Stars: Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp, Duan Sanderson, Naomie Harris

A beautiful and sensitive film about growing up black and sexually confused on the urban streets of Miami.

Told in three parts, we see Chiron: as a child from a deprived background who is taken under the wing of the local drug dealer; then as a troubled and confused youth; and finally the adult who has to face the truth of his feelings.

Independent film-maker Jenkins has achieved one of the great breakthroughs of recent years with this impressive drama, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards and eventually scooped the ‘best picture’ Oscar ahead of the widely-fancied La La land.

At the time of composing this write-up the film had not been released in the UK, with a surprising lack of pre-publicity material available given that the film was already being spoken of in connection with the awards ceremony.  But here is a link to the (pre-UK release) Review from The Guardian 

That Guardian review includes a link to the US Trailer, which can be seen below

News Update 16 April 2017

Thursday’s film Fences was well-received by patrons. Kishiko Bennett, from Crystal Palace, was our guest at the evening screening, having been informed towards the end of March that she was the buyer of our 25,000 ticket! A relative newcomer to the David Lean, Mrs Bennett hopes to make many more visits in the future. She said: “I’m delighted to be able to see the films I enjoy in this intimate, comfortable and friendly cinema”.

The week ahead includes sell out screenings of Elle and Hidden Figures, although a few 11:00am tickets remain for the latter. Extra screenings of both are indicated below, as well as the final opportunity (other than a Babes in Arms screening on 9 May) to see Moonlight. Read More………
