Cinema – Military Wives (26th November 2021)

With their partners away serving in Afghanistan, a group of women on the home front form a choir and quickly find themselves at the centre of a media sensation and global movement.

Inspired by real events and from the director of The Full Monty (Peter Cattaneo), Military Wives is the heartfelt story of friendship, love, and support on the home front. When Kate (Kristin Scott Thomas, Darkest Hour) persuades a disparate group of women on the base to form the Military Wives Choir, Lisa (Sharon Horgan, Catastrophe) is initially sceptical and embarrassed by such an amateur bunch. However, she is quickly transformed by the choir’s friendship, humour and courage. Finding their voice together, Kate, Lisa and the choir put aside their own personal differences and, by singing their hearts out, bring joy, hope and strength to the world.

Cinema – Judy (6th March 2020)

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in THE WIZARD OF OZ, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Will she have the strength to go on? Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.
