Film Club

The Village Hall Committee approached us to see if we would like to start a village film club. As film enthusiasts, we did not hesitate. We now show films once a month..

Initially we used our own rather ancient equipment but now that the hall has been equipped with a full size screen and excellent sound system the quality has improved markedly.

The films are shown on a Tuesday or Thursday evening at 8pm but the doors open at 7.30 for a drink from the bar before we get started. Entrance is by donation on the door at £3 per head.

Members can also buy entrance for 12 films for £24.

The programme is fixed on a seasonal basis and we keep members up to date by email. So, if you would like to join, just let us have your email.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody movie posterThis is a 2018 biographical drama film about Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the British rock band Queen. It was directed by Bryan Singer. It stars Rami Malek as Mercury. Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor served as consultants. The film follows the singer’s life from the formation of the band up to their 1985 Live Aid performance at the original Wembley Stadium

Despite its flaws, it delivers moments of
shameless, air-punching
joy (Guardian)

Fisherman’s Friends

Fisherman's Friends movie poster

This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton. It’s inspired by the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, an all-male a capella folk singing group from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in the noughties became an unexpected hit for their authentic sea shanties.

The Farewell

The Farewell movie posterThe push and pull between the bonds of blood and the ties of culture are explored with a light touch and a perceptive eye for detail in this delightful, semi-autobiographical family drama from writer and director Lulu Wang.

The American tendency to freely share thoughts and feelings collides with the Chinese way of parcelling up emotions.

Ultimately, it’s all about balance, a yin and yang of roots and identities, humour and pathos that comes together into a satisfying, bittersweet wedding banquet of a movie. (Guardian)
