“Funny and bittersweet,
a delightful film”
“A worthy addition to Anderson’s canon – his deadpan wit meshes nicely with a generous view of human imperfections.”
The Daily Telegraph
The box office is now open for our third screening, Wes Anderson’s MOONRISE KINGDOM (12A).
The film marks something of a return to form for Anderson, whose previous career highlights include Rushmore (1998), The Royal Tenenbaums (nominated for an Oscar for best original screenplay in 2001), and the stop-motion animated version of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).
Set in 1960s New England, the film follows a pair of young lovers heading into the wilds to escape their small town lives just as a hurricane rolls into the area. Their disappearance causes quite a storm back home…
The film boasts a stellar cast, including Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton, and should make for a really entertaining evening. Come along for a bit of nostalgia, some great period music and a hearty dose of warm and humane humour!
Advance tickets are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 01446 781 144 or you can pop into the Fox & Hounds and enquire at the bar.
By way of an experiment we sold homemade cake, soft drinks and ice cream at our screening of The Woman in Black.
The ice cream was sourced from Joe’s, a historic family business based in Swansea. You can read all about the company on their web site.
Demand was such that we sold out of ice cream (available in vanilla, chocolate swirl and strawberry swirl flavours), and feedback suggests the cake and drinks were a hit as well.
So we judge the experiment to have been a success, and we’ll continue to offer reasonably priced refreshments at future screenings. Just remember to bring your pocket money along to the next screening, and if anyone has any preferences please let us know!
Around 50 lost souls gathered in the village hall last Friday for our Almost-Nearly-Halloween-Spooktacular performance of The Woman in Black.
The hall was decked out in suitably creepy attire, with the hushed audience sat among the faintly flickering light of a dozen Health & Safety approved LED candles. Such atmosphere!
Despite the ’12A’ rating, the film’s jumpiest moments managed to lift a number of patrons from their seats. Fortunately we all made it safely back home across the deserted churchyard… or did we?
The event also saw the world premiere of our new promo reel, which is now available on YouTube:
Our thanks to everyone who attended, and we look forward to welcoming you again in November.
