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.

Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool movie posterThere is a tremendous warmth and tenderness to this sweet, sad love story starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell – a stranger-than-fiction true romance that unfolds in Los Angeles, New York, London and Liverpool – and there is a bittersweet rightness in a new song from Elvis Costello over the closing credits: You Shouldn’t Look at Me That Way. Director Paul McGuigan finds the balance between pathos and humour, working from Matt Greenhalgh’s adaptation of a memoir by the actor and writer Peter Turner.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

Goodbye Christopher Robin movie posterThis beautifully filmed, poignant story directed by Simon Curtis gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between children’s author, A.A. Milne (Dominhall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston). At the end of the First World War, Milne is inspired by his son’s toys to create the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh – which brings him immediate and enduring celebrity. But the books’ international success comes at a cost for the author, his young son and his wife Daphne (Margot Robbie).

The sunlight is dappled with darkness in the story of AA Milne’s famous creation and its effect on the son who inspired him – delightful take on the difficult birth of Winnie-the-Pooh (Guardian)
