Larking about on April Fool’s Day

Posted on -

Back to all posts A documentary that tells the story of a decades-long friendship that drives an architect and a biomedical scientist to make the weirdest music you've ever heard in your life.

Screening on Thursday April 1st, 23rd Century Giants tells the story of legendary local duo Renaldo and the Loaf aka Brian Poole and David Janssen.

David and Brian met up in the 70’s and decided to start making their own music and the rest as they say is history... or is it….actually it was a foray into the future of music, with electronic loops, sampling, experimental techniques and dead ends. Their music was created in conjunction with props, videos and film clips making this film a visual feast of creativity.

New ideas often originate in young people’s bedrooms and Renaldo and the Loaf were no exception, they were ahead of the curve and many of their ideas are now mainstream in the music industry. Brian and David will be at the screening and happy to answer all your questions.

Following the death of his wife, professional chef Cheng travels with his young son to a remote village in Finland to connect with an old Finnish friend he once met in Shanghai.

If you liked Chocolat, then Thursday’s film Master Cheng will be right up your alley. Comfort film with comfort food for difficult times.

Decades of a love triangle concerning two friends and an impulsive woman.

Jules et Jimis 60! which means that you have probably never seen it on the big screen before. Worry not, now you can see Truffaut's French New Wave love triangle classic on Friday evening. Francofiles fill your boots.

Too self-conscious to woo Roxanne himself, wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac helps young Christian nab her heart through love letters.

Is it a comedy? is it a swashbuckler? This time it’s a musical. Cyrano on Saturday night has durability and romance, it peels back the layers in new and exciting ways.

Coming Soon...

Our April programme is now on the website and includes many exciting goodies... River, The Batman and The Phantom of the Open to name a few...

It's not a call, it's a warning...
