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.

Dream Horse (8th October 2021)

The film tells the true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by a Welsh bartender Jan Vokes played by Toni Collette..Jan has very little money and no experience of training horses, so she persuades her neighbours to chip in money they can ill afford to spend, to help raise Dream, hoping he can compete at the top level. The investment pays off as Dream starts winning races, until finally he goes on to race in the Welsh Grand National.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense (22nd March 2020) – CANCELLED

Take your seats with caution! Aristocratic buffoon Bertie Wooster has hired the theatre for the night to present his one-man show detailing a recent and rather spectacular series of misadventures, including the theft of a novelty cow creamer and a narrow escape from unwanted matrimony.
The only trouble is Bertie hasn’t worked out who’s going to play the parts. Will the show be a disaster? Will the scenery stay upright? Or will his trusty manservant Jeeves step in and save the day?
In a joyous reimagining of the classic P.G.Wodehouse characters, three actors hurl themselves from role to role as they race to tell the story of Bertie’s own farcical adventures.
Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense was created by the Goodale Brothers, adapted primarily from P.G. Wodehouse‘ ‘The Code of the Woosters.’  After hugely successful runs in the West End, it won the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

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”.

Laurel and Hardy — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.
