  • More Films...

    25 March 2024

    The End We Start From was originally going to be our last film before our long summer break but we now have two more films for you. We have decided that the Festival Favourite - 'Totem' deserves to be seen by more people than got to see it at the festival and so we will be showing it on TUESDAY 16 APRIL AT 7.30pm

    On SUNDAY 21st April at 5.00pm we will be showing 'Lost in the Stars', the Chinese thriller that went wrong on 4 February. More details will follow soon - but put them in your diary now!
  • The End We Start From - Sunday 24th March 5pm

    18 March 2024

    In The End We Start From Jodie Comer stars as a woman who gives birth just as terrible floods hit London; new life begins as the old life ends. The film continues to emphasise the individuals' problems rather than the bigger picture, focusing on our unnamed hero trying to survive as food gets harder to find. She first escapes from London up North with her partner, then tries to reach a commune with a new-found friend, all the while having to fend for her baby.

    "Comer’s vulnerability and idealism are authentic as are her determination and a dash of real ruthlessness... She carries everything with unselfconscious strength and style." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

  • Shayda - Sunday 17th March 5pm

    11 March 2024

    Shayda tells the story of the titular character's attempt to escape her abusive husband's clutches. This is director Noora Niasari's confident personal debut , which won an Audience Award at Sundance for the World Dramatic Competition program.

    "One of the most masterful debuts of a filmmaker that I've seen in a long time." - Claudia Puig, FilmWeek

  • The Holdovers - Sunday 10th March 5pm

    4 March 2024

    The Festival may be over but we still have some great films coming up on Sunday evenings. This week it's Alexander Payne's The Holdovers starring Paul Giamatti which has been nominated for nearly 200 awards (including 5 Oscars) and had already won more than 100. 

    "Nothing about 'The Holdovers' sounds particularly special, and yet it's one of director Alexander Payne's best films – very funny, occasionally touching and a sterling example of the bonds that can be forged by an unlikely family. Set in a stiff New England private school in 1970, it passes the 'should see' test with flying colours" - Brian Lowry, CNN.
