2014 Film Programme

Several  of the films in our programme are subsidised by the British Film Institute Neighbourhood Cinema project.

We are very grateful for their support and, as they ask us to survey our audiences, we will be issuing a very simple questionnaire after certain films to assess your responses.

Cinema Paradiso

We showed the 2 hour version but there is also a Director’s Cut of 170 minutes that has an alternative ending to the story. You may have noticed a young girl on a scooter riding past during the funeral procession at the end. You can read about who she is on Wikipedia and decide which version you prefer.

Belle 100 mins cert 12A  TRAILER REVIEW

BELLE takes its inspiration from a 1779 painting made at Kenwood House and tells the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mabatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral in late 18th century England – a period familiar to us from the works of Jane Austen.

Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the colour of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing.

Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar's son bent on change (Matthew Goode) who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England. Miranda Richardson and Penelope Wilton also feature in a splendid cast.

For a bit more historical background, see Wikipedia and the website of the Jane Austen Society.

Are you interested in getting involved as a volunteer at our cinema?

We are looking for help with various activities including advance publicity, projecting up on the balcony on the night, greeting people and selling tickets at the door, preparing and tidying the hall and so on.

The time commitment is not great but it is fun and we believe worthwhile. Part of the pleasure is in choosing the films for each season. If you are interested please speak to one of the busy-looking people at a show or use our contact details.
