ARRIVAL (13)

Category: Sci-fi drama

When twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world, linguistics expert Louise Banks is tasked with communicating with the alien visitors.

“Riveting, dizzying stuff… The magnificent new film from Denis Villeneuve is the kind of science fiction picture that hands its audience rocket packs, then goes arcing off into the heavens and dares you to keep up.”

Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

“The best sci-fi film in years.”

BBC Culture

 

“Such a beautiful and thought-provoking film that it almost single-handedly makes up for every bad aliens-coming-to-Earth film you’ve ever seen”

USA magazine


Friday 26th May

Toni Erdmann (12A)

Starring: Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller

Winfried (Peter Simonischek) doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller). The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks. What’s worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all

 

 

OUR NEXT THREE FILMS – April – May & June

CLUB HISTORY

From an initial start at the end of September 2012, using a borrowed projector and screen we have now painted the whole end wall of the upstairs room at The Club and with the generous help of the Street Fair Committee been enabled to buy a full HD/1080 Blu-Ray capable LCD projector, our own Blu-ray player, speakers and a small mixing desk.  We have also been kindly given by Air-in-G a huge 8 foot wide transportable screen.  As with the marquees owned by the Street Fair we will make the set up available for use in the village for other fundraising events.  In the last few years since we began showing films we have run a Gaza Benefit evening – which raised over £750,a fundraiser for Ebola victims, given money to the Football Club and Brownies, Girl Guides & Newnham Earlybirds – to mention but a few.
