“Is Lee’s film a fable? Is it an adventure?
No, it’s a super-movie.”
Financial Times

We kick off in May with Oscar-winning director Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Yann Martell’s bestselling novel Life of Pi (2012).

“This is a date movie that caters to the needs of both men and women: American football and comedy, ballroom dancing and romance. Silver Linings Playbook covers all those bases — and rises above them too.”
The Times

Flaming June yields up a red hot romance courtesy of Silver Linings Playbook (2012), starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert de Niro.

“As in all of Tarantino’s best films, there is a strange and brilliant magic at work here; a dark, bubbling alchemy of art and junk.”
The Daily Telegraph

We end the summer season with a return to sparkling form for Quentin Tarrantino, with his unique take on the emancipation story in this bloody tale of slavery and vengeance: Django Unchained (18).

Community notices

We’re a community cinema. Note the order of those words: community comes first. And that’s what it’s all about. The films we screen are obviously an important part of what we do each month, but only as a means to bring people together for some good old fashioned socialising.

We’re not the only provider offering such an opportunity: there’s a great deal going on locally, and we’re happy to advertise events (big or small) as part of our pre-film show and on the web site.

This month we advertised the Llancarfan Society May Day Walk, which takes place on Sunday 5 May between 12.00pm and 1.30pm. Meet by the Fox & Hounds before walking around the village while learning about its rich history. Families and dogs welcome.

Also worth noting, this Saturday (27 April) between 10am and 12pm there’s the annual Seedy Saturday gathering in the village hall for those with horticultural interests.

And the Fox & Hounds (01446 781287) has a number of events to look forward to, including:

Tuesday 30th April and the last Tuesday of every month – Quiz night. Teams of 4 maximum, just £7.50 per person for quiz and supper. Teams must book their places in advance. 7.30pm start.

Saturday 18th May -If you don’t fancy our screening of Life of Pi how about a Bordeaux wine tasting evening with dinner? £60 per person, wines along with tasting notes and a 3 course dinner. Starts 7.30pm.

Thursday 20th June – Celebrate Royal Ascot’s Ladies Day nearer to home. Ladies are invited to wear their best dresses and hats (gentlemen are welcome too!). Starts at 12 noon with a glass of prosecco followed by a buffet lunch to include dressed salmon and fresh strawberries. £25 per person (£5 donation to the village show fund). Prize for the best dressed lady and gentleman plus the best hat. Afternoon tea will also be available at £6 per person, advanced bookings needed. Television coverage of the racing will also be available.

Formidable Les Misérables!

Thanks to everyone who manned the barricades in support of last night’s rousing performance of Les Misérables. It went like a dream: a packed house, tissues at the ready, and halftime ice cream, tea & coffee; our hopes were high for a life worth living film worth seeing, and boy did it deliver!

Some of the audience felt Russell Crowe had been unfairly criticised for his performance; in fact, many agreed the bit where he takes a plunge was a definite highlight.

We also squeezed in a French themed promo reel (see slideshow below) and a short film, courtesy of Ian Fell, about conservation work currently underway in St Cadoc’s. Fantastique!
