At the last two screenings, in April and May, we gave our audiences a vote to decide the film they want for July from a choice of four 2019 Oscar winners. And the film that came out on top (after a very tight result) was Bohemian Rhapsody, which tells the story of Queen and Freddie Mercury. Rami Malek won numerous awards for his performance as Freddie, including the best actor Oscar and BAFTA, and the songs are of course fabulous! We will be showing this on 20 July, 7.30pm

For the screenings in September and October we held a ‘ballot’ for our audiences, allowing them to choose the December film out of a list of five classic comedies (all from a different decade). The films were Some Like it Hot, The Producers, Annie Hall, When Harry Met Sally, and Groundhog Day.
And the winner is… Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot! Starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. We will show this on 15 December.
Our film on 24 November 2018 will be the British supernatural horror film Ghost Stories – we will add to the website very shortly!!
It looks like our film on 29 September – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – will be another sell out, with only a few tickets left in the shops and on line. Tickets for Lady Bird in October are also going fast, so do get yours while you can!
We may not have been showing films over the summer, but we have been hard at work installing a new speaker system in the Parochial Hall! We can’t wait to show it off for our first film in the new season – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (29 September).
We are pleased to announce that our October film will be Greta Gerwig’s wonderful Lady Bird. This is a coming of age film, reflecting the director’s own upbringing in Southern California and her relationships with boys, family, and friends. This is Gerwig’s first film as director but she has previous acting and screenwriting credits, often in collaboration with Noah Baumbach (eg Frances Ha, Mistress America). It is a very warm and accomplished debut, for which she received an Oscar nomination.
We will let you know when tickets are on sale.
