July 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:

Their Finest (2016, UK), Cert. 12A

Director: Lone Scherfig
Stars: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

 

 

Facing a new demand for realistic Home Front movies, a London film studio hires copywriter Catrin (Arterton) to write the “slop” – industry slang for “girl talk” – to improve their product.

 

And she proves a real talent.  Soon she is working on a patriotic tale based on the Dunkirk evacuation, along with a narcissistic veteran star (Nighy) and a fellow screenwriter (Claflin) who is more appealing than her boorish husband.

With Arterton at the head of an excellent British cast, Their Finest is “a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema” (Empire).

 

Here are links to a Review from The Guardian , including links to a Trailer and an interview with the stars.

News Update 02 July 2017

Stunningly beautiful animation contrasts with moving romance…….

The Red Turtle on Tuesday, 19:30, gives cinema-goers another chance to appreciate the skills of the celebrated animé makers at Studio Ghibli combining for the first time with a European director, Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit. Our audience at yesterday’s screening found this remarkable dialogue-free film an absorbing, touching, and very beautiful exposé of the cycle of life. Both dramatic and charming, it celebrates the beauty of nature with masterful images creating a magic spell all its own…

Perhaps you missed the earlier performances last month of Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy. If so, there’s a repeat showing on 5 July at 19:30. It’s also billed as our Babes in Arms screening on 11 July at 11:00. The film conveys a sense of depth along with some humour but it’s ultimately an entertaining, romantic and touching tribute to the role of working women – particularly pertinent to the world of cinema.

News Update 18 June 2017

For a visit to the David Lean next Tuesday, perhaps we can recommend the excellent French film Heal the Living. It centres on the question of what to do when a loved one suffers a major injury after an accident – a dilemma faced by the parents of 17-year-old Simon. This finely-directed film centres on the delicate and sensitive issue of organ donation and the effect on both the recipient’s family and the medical teams involved. According to the celebrated French director of the film, Katell Quillévéré, “a heart stops beating in one body to promote the life of another…”

Few seats are left for the afternoon showing of Their Finest on Thursday 22 June, and the 19:30 one has almost sold out. There’s an extra screening scheduled for Wednesday 5 July at 19:30, so book now if you’d like to catch up with this “funny, winning, and beautifully acted ode to working women and the cinema” (Empire Magazine). It’ll also be featured as a Babes in Arms showing on Tuesday 11 July at the usual time of 11:00. Read More…….
