I was saddened to hear this week a rumour that we are closing down, we’re not, we’re still here and still showing some of the best films around in one of the most beautiful buildings in the area. Our May/June programme is now up on the website and you will be able to find our printed programmes in their usual haunts by the end of the week.
We are collaborating with a number of organisations over the summer including Portsmouth Football Club, Portsmouth Festivities, Journeys Festival International, final year students at the Uni, NMRN and the final screening before our summer break is a fundraiser for Rowan’s Hospice and Lymphoma Research Foundation.
Our monthly matinee this Thursday is All is True, a film that mixes truth with conjecture. What isn’t conjecture, it is the truth, we’ll be serving free tea and biscuits before the film, the price of a ticket is less than our evening ticket prices, that the film will be shown with subtitles and starts at 4.15pm.
Our evening film on Thursday is called Girl and goes to show that transitioning from male to female whilst training to be a ballet dancer isn’t trouble free even if all around are supportive.
Scream on Friday is the penultimate movie in our season of Monstrous Feminine films. It is a lesson in how to subvert a genre but all the while paying it homage.
Saturday night is Bohemian Rhapsody Singalongnight, time to dust off those vocal chords, tap your feet and soak up those classic Queen anthems.
All our online tickets are sold out but we will have 40 tickets on the door from 6.15pm onwards for earlybirds to come by and buy.
