Film ‘Maudie’ to be replaced by ‘My Cousin Rachel’

Despite hopes that we would be able to confirm Maudie (5th December) for the current season, we have had to postpone it till after Christmas.  Its replacement is My Cousin Rachel, the 2017 film based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier and starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin. Details in What’s On on the website.

 

A Time for Awareness as well as Remembrance?

It is right for us to remember past horrors and tragic mistakes, but John Pilger’s powerful documentary film also reminds us of the need to avoid future cataclysms and warns us about the one currently brewing in the Pacific.

Filmed over two years in the Marshall Islands, Japan, Korea, China and the US, this film reveals a build-up to war on the doorstep of China. Bringing together a combination of rare archive footage and interviews with witnesses, the film documents America’s secret history in the region.

“A strong corrective to our bland and complacent indifference to the new war-game scenario in the Pacific”.  The Guardian

“You may come out of it agreeing with him, disagreeing with him, or somewhere in between. But it’s a live issue that could change the world, could end the world as we know it, and this dedicated journalist wants to make sure we know about it.” The Australian

My Life as a Courgette – definitely Thursday

 

The children’s matinée ‘My life as a Courgette’ will definitely be screened on Thursday, 26th October, not Tuesday as shown on the poster.

It would be a shame to miss this film, as it had the highest approval rating at the pre-screening, even over the adult films.
