Blade Runner 2049 and The Party both played to full houses this week – the former a visual feast which prompted very positive feedback. “Bleak, but immensely thought-provoking” was one response. An extra screening on 20 December at 19:00 offers a second chance to see it, but if your affection for the 1982 original makes you hesitant to see a sequel, please be assured that it has the blessing of Executive Producer Ridley Scott!
The Party was greatly enjoyed and caused much laughter. It’s showing again on 13 December at 19:30. An appreciative audience too, for The Tree of Wooden Clogs, “a masterwork of the Italian cinema”. One lady was amazed at the age of the film, considering how modern it looked, and another Italian gentleman was quite emotional after the screening. Read more………..
Two enjoyable films this week, with the screenings of Henry V especially pleasing those who saw it. ‘Unbelievably good’ and ‘thoroughly enjoyable’ were two of the comments heard afterwards, and one patron had read through the entire play the night before so that she could enjoy it to the full!
Next week’s films are proving very popular, so much so that we have set up extra screenings for two of them. A handful of tickets are still available for Blade Runner 2049 on Tuesday and The Party on Thursday. Both have extra screenings in December, on Wednesday 20 at 19:00 and Wednesday 13 at 19:30 respectively. Our repeat screening of Loving Vincent on Wednesday is sold out, so your last chance to see it will be the Babes in Arms show on Tuesday 12 December at 11:00. Book tickets here.

We had full houses for both screenings of Loving Vincent. Thanks to the distributors, we were able to include a pre-film talk by the director and a guest Q&A some of the stars and crew filmed at the UK premiere held in the National Gallery. Many patrons took the opportunity to stay for this fascinating insight into the acclaimed main feature, and those who have booked for the re-screening on Wednesday 29 November will also have the opportunity to see it. Unfortunately, this performance is virtually sold out, so your last chance to see this truly amazing animation will be our Babes in Arms screening on Tuesday 12 December at 11:00. Read more…..
