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.

The Children Act

The Children Act movie posterSophisticated and challenging. Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel and bolstered by an expressive performance by Emma Thompson (astounding even by her consistently high standards),  The Children Act tells the story of a high court family judge faced with incredibly difficult decisions, while her own married life goes into crisis. Director Richard Eyre’s film  poses sophisticated questions around family, religion, marriage, law and the delicate boundaries that can or cannot be crossed in each institution.

Green Book

Green Book movie posterWhen Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr Don Shirley (Oscar winning performance by Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humour-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
