It’s been a strange old time trying to programme the films for No6, a long hiatus in film production, distributors constantly changing release dates and films going straight to streaming platforms have contributed to a few headaches and a lot head scratching.
Should we screen any films that we were dying to see on the big screen but felt like they had disappeared into the mists of time?
Answer: yes we are going to show Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Carmilla and Real.
Can we induce people to come and see films that are on streaming channels?
Answer: Yes, hopefully there are films on the programme that will be so much better on the big screen in the cinema where they should be seen and given full attention.
And all films that keep having their release dates moved WILL finally have their day including Wes Anderson’s French Dispatch and of course No Time to Die. (But not just yet.)
So incase you are wondering, this is this week’s line up...
Give us a drum roll, charge your glasses and make a toast ….our opening film on Thursday 2nd Sept at 7.00pm is American Utopia. Plenty of absolute bangers from yesteryear and musicians called upon to perform well rehearsed dance routines. Spike Lee directs David Byrne’s Broadway show - what a corker!
Oscar winning Another Round is on Friday 3rd Sept at 7.00pm. The premise of this film is that everyone has an inbuilt alcohol deficiency…can daytime drinking help the guys to become better versions of themselves?

If you have missed out on foreign holidays and yearn to be in France….Portrait of a Lady on Fire will light your fire. Mesmerising from beginning to end Screening on Friday 15th Oct at 7.00pm.
