  1. Our December film – Some Like it Hot

    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.

  2. Our November film – Ghost Stories

    Our film on 24 November 2018 will be the British supernatural horror film Ghost Stories – we will add to the website very shortly!!

  3. Three Billboards almost sold out

    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!

  4. Improvements at OC

    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).

  5. Lady Bird – our film for October

    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.

  6. Dates for 2018

    Just in case people want to get the dates in their diaries, we have the following dates for the rest of the films for 2018:

    • 23 June – The Post
    • 29 September – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    • 20 October – TBC
    • 24 November – TBC
    • 15 December – TBC
  7. And the winner of our audience choice is…

    Those of you who attended screenings in April or May will have taken part in our ‘audience choice’ ballot to help decide the September film.  There was a choice of five 2018 Oscar winners, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri came out on top (by a landslide!).  We are showing it on 29 September.

    Thanks to all who took part – it is a great choice, with strong performances and a witty script, as well as some very dark themes.

  8. Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

    Thanks to all who came to another sell out showing last weekend, for the 2017 ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’, starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell.  It told the story of Gloria Grahame the American film star from the 1940s and 50s – and more specifically her later relationship with a younger man.

    For those of you who want to find out more about her, I suggest you have a look at ‘In a Lonely Place’, a cracking film in which she starred alongside Bogart, or ‘The Big Heat’, a dark thriller directed by Fritz Lang.

  9. Audience choice – for September

    We are pleased to announce that audiences for our April and May screenings will get the chance to choose the September film!  We are currently developing a choice of five films, all 2018 Oscar winners or nominees.  We will let you know the five asap.

    For those who are attending Death of Stalin or Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, you will get given a voting ‘token’ and will get the chance to use it to help choose the film for September!

  10. The Death of Stalin – sold out

    Sorry to say, but The Death of Stalin (our April film) has now sold out on line.  We believe there may be a few left at the shops in Oakwood, ie Jackrabbits, Tasty Cafe or Prestons.  We do find we are selling out most screenings so do get in quick next time!
