Saturday 5th October: 7pm St Cadoc’s Church Llancarfan, A Month in the Country (1987, PG) part of the Vale Film Festival 

A month in the country

St Cadoc’s Church [] is proud to present a very special screening of a modern classic of British cinema adapted from J L Carr’s acclaimed novel, A Month in the Country (1987).  Starring Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in their first film, this is a captivating adaption of J. L. Carr’s novel set in Yorkshire in 1920 about former soldiers scarred by their experiences.

For this special event, which is part of the inaugural Vale Film Festival [] supported by Creative Rural Communities, St Cadoc’s church will be transformed into a Pop-up Picture Palace, along with live music performed by Hiraeth String Quartet, inspired by Howard Blake’s award-winning score, and an introductory talk about our own church’s wall paintings by local expert Ian Fell.

All profit from the screening will go to help save the wall paintings from an urgent damp problem recently identified at St Cadoc’s. Spaces are very limited so book now for this rare chance to see a youthful Colin Firth perfecting his stammer years before he collected the best acting Oscar for The King’s Speech. The film is a real feast of period detail, rousing music and moving performances by three of our best actors before they hit the big time.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 each or £6.50 for Llancarfan Community Cinema members. They are available by calling or emailing:

Murder on the Orient Express (12A, Crime/Drama/Mystery)
Friday 20th April, 7.15pm doors for 7.30pm start

“An enjoyable journey with a stellar cast, though the baggage we carry as modern viewers sees this ride derailed before its denouement.”  Empire

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this new version of Agatha Christie’s novel, in which the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot finds himself stranded on a snowbound train in company with thirteen strangers and a corpse.  There cannot be a person in the world who does not know the outcome, so the fun will be watching a cast of top-notch performers including Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and many more go through their paces.
