Welcome to our January/February 2018 programme! As we move towards the awards season there are a plethora of great films around, all jostling for the highest accolades. Fear not, No6 will be screening as many of these films as we can, as soon as we can.
We will also be screening some of the smaller releases that are usually a lot less obvious but a lot more interesting; the bigger films provide our bread and butter but the smaller indie/world cinema films are our icing on the cake. We often screen the films that the commercial cinemas won’t touch - because we are not for profit we can take those chances.
So why not make it your new year’s resolution to come and see a film that is maybe old but has stood the test of time, a foreign language film that may give an insight to a different way of life or a documentary that reveals a hidden world? You won’t be disappointed.
On Thursday evening and a little earlier than usual, starting at 6.30pm we have our second screening of Blade Runner 2049. This film is a rare beast: a sequel that is equal to the original.
Film Stars don’t Die in Liverpool on Friday night features an astounding performance by Annette Bening as Gloria Grahame the femme fatale who falls in love with a man three decades younger than herself. Jamie Bell is awesomely good too!
Paddington 2 seems to have caught the imagination of the young and the young at heart in equal measure. Appropriately for the time of year and in true pantomime stylee, Hugh Grant camps it up as a fantastic baddy on Saturday night.
