STOP PRESS: May film announced!

11. DREAM WITH JAN AND BRIAN7

“…a crowd pleaser to rival cinema’s best sporting underdog stories.”

FRIDAY 15 MAY 2015

May marks the close of our screening year before the cinema shuts its doors for the summer. We like to end on a high note, and this year we have something very special planned.

We’re delighted to bring DARK HORSE (2015, PG) to Llancarfan for a fund raising event in aid of the village hall.

Dark Horse tells the remarkable real life story of Dream Alliance, a race horse who won the Welsh Grand National only 18 months after an injury that should have ended his career.

Even more incredibly, the horse is owned by a syndicate living in a former mining village in Wales.

Dark Horse provides a moving, funny and thrilling account of how a group of ordinary people conquered the ‘sport of kings’. It’s a must see for anyone who likes horses, racing or just a good old-fashioned underdog story.

There will be a bar on the night, plus a raffle with the chance to win a Blu ray player and other great prizes. All profits from the event will go to the village hall for much needed updates and repairs.

Mr Turner (2014, 12A)

Friday 17 April

 “…supremely enjoyable…”
Daily Telegraph

“If there is one film you should see on the biggest screen possible this year, it is Mr Turner.”
The Times

 

Covering the last 25 years or so of Turner’s life, a period when the artist was celebrated and reviled in almost equal measure, Mike Leigh’s critically acclaimed film brings one of this country’s greatest eccentric talents to the big screen.

Timothy Spall triumphs as Turner, even learning to paint in preparation for the role. Period detail is brought to vivid life, including a working replica of Robert Stephenson’s 1830 Planet locomotive train, and the film looks stunning courtesy of Dick Pope’s cinematography. It is sure to be a very memorable evening.

Genuine classic

Last Friday’s screening of The Imitation Game broke a number of records, including the largest number of tickets sold for one of our regular events (not including our Christmas family matinees).

The village hall was packed, which is doubly satisfying as this excellent film deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. Thanks to everyone who joined us and made it such a wonderful night.
