It’s turbulent times in the life of a cinema programmer and our usual two month cycle of programming is proving very difficult to maintain. Just as you think you have it planned, the distributors move the release dates out of reach for the time being. So for the Jan/Feb programme, we will publish what is on the slate on the website and produce separate flyers for Jan and Feb when we can book films and be sure of securing the best that we can get. I would rather wait than fill the programme for the sake of it and miss out if better comes along. It’s strange times so it’s best to watch the website for updates.
Thursday’s film has been selected by our young programmers and boy do they have great taste. Good Will Hunting has lasting appeal fusing realism, heart and humour perfectly.
King Kermode waxes lyrical about this film. Mothering Sunday on Friday doesn’t break new ground but it covers old ground exquisitely.
Hey dude, The Big Lebowski is back in the room on Saturday night. We won’t judge if you pop down in your dressing gown.
Paulo Sorrentino’s (The Great Beauty, The Two Popes) The Hand of God is set in Naples and depicts teenage recollections with a with a twinge of freshness. Screening on Friday 17th Dec at 7.00pm.
