The multi-BAFTA winner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has virtually sold out its near-future showings at the David Lean, but we’re pleased to announce an extra screening for Tuesday 27 March at 14:30. Book now if you’d like to see it.
Comments from patrons who saw it on Tuesday were full of praise: ‘fantastic – a great mix of humour and pathos’. And this very successful film has distinctly British roots – it’s a joint production between Film 4 (the movie arm of Channel 4) and Fox Searchlight.
Battle of the Sexes is our Babes in Arms screening showing on Tuesday 13 February at 11:00. Come along with your little ones to enjoy this very entertaining film which tells the true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one, Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champion – and hustler – Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell).
The Prince of Nothingwood, a wonderful documentary from Afghanistan, is showing on 13 February at 19:30. The director – and often star – Salim Shaheen is described as ‘the biggest fish in the tiny pond of Afghan film’ as he himself says: “Nothingwood”. But Shaheen proves to be ‘a movie mogul with a difference’ as he gives us a fascinating and sometimes hilarious look at the shoestring side of the film industry, along with an unexpected view of life in Afghanistan. Seats are available for this original – and affectionately made – piece of cinema, and under-25s might want to take advantage of our ‘rush’ ticket offer – more details here.
