Next Film

8pm – Friday, 26th July

Akenfield (12)

Category: Drama/documentary
Director: Peter Hall
Runtime: 1 hr 35 mins
Based on the acclaimed oral history by Ronald Blythe, Peter Hall’s classic 1974 film tells the story of three generations of a real-life Suffolk farming family as they struggle to adapt to the pressures of mechanisation, world war and shifting social mores.

Profoundly romantic but also unflinching in its portrayal of the realities of rural life, Akenfield features compelling performances and a sweeping orchestral score by Sir Michael Tippett.

  • CLUB HISTORY
  • From an initial start at the end of September 2012, using a borrowed projector and screen we now have 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.  Since we began showing films we have raised and donated over £8,000 to a variety of local groups, including the Armoury Village Hall, The Club, Riding for the Disabled and The Brownies.
