Caldbeck's Friendly Friday Films 2023-24

We're pleased to announce the first films in our new season starting in September.

The first one is "Lunana - Yak in the Classroom", a film set in the Himalayas of Bhutan. It's a simple but engaging story of a teacher sent against his will to teach in the highest school in the world but then falling for the charms of village life. This was voted the best film at Keswick Film Festival in February and is a great story beautifully told.

Following that we have Bill Nighy in "Living", then "Eight Mountains" with one of our popular meals. The December film is a bit of festive silliness with Daniel Craig as a bumbling (but cunning) detective in "Knives Out".

We've had a few cold evenings in the hall, so we are pleased that the Parish Hall is planning on improving the heating and insulation this Autumn.

As we write this there is the news that the Empire cinema chain has closed down - the second this year - and Caldbeck is not immune from losing customers. We had very small audiences for some films last year and unless numbers pick up we cannot afford to keep showing films at loss. So please do come along and support us - and bring your family and friends.

All films are at Caldbeck Village Hall with a 7.30pm start time.

Films are £5 on the door.

2023/24 Programme

December 15th: Knives Out

The circumstances surrounding the death of crime novelist Harlan Thrombey are mysterious, but there's one thing that renowned Detective Benoit Blanc knows for sure -- everyone in the wildly dysfunctional Thrombey family is a suspect. Blanc must sift through a web of lies and red herrings to uncover the truth. "A terrific, authentic, modern-day Agatha Christie-style whodunnit...with an all-star cast."

January 19th: Alcarras

'Alcarràs' is a poignant, slice-of-life drama about a family of peach farmers in a small town facing the challenges of modernity and capitalism. It's a heartwarming tale of family, community, and the importance of passing down legacies.
