Next screening – COOL HAND LUKE (15) – Saturday 18th April, 8pm
After drunkenly destroying a string of parking meters, Paul Newman gets sent to prison where he becomes an inspiration to the other inmates. Soon he is up in arms against the wardens, which leads to trouble.
Released in 1967, this gritty tale of a man refusing to conform is cited as Newman’s ‘coming of age’ picture after he was Oscar-nominated for best actor.
It’s been heralded as one of the greatest prison movies ever made and features that infamous egg-eating scene, which, frankly, put us off soldiers for life.
“A tough, taut, smart milestone in the evolution of the American anti-hero, and cracking entertainment too”
“Cool Hand Luke still has something important to say”

Next screening – GONE GIRL (18) – Saturday 16th May, 8pm
We end this season of films with David Fincher’s sprawling whodunit Gone Girl, a dark and chaotic portrayal of a dysfunctional relationship gone squirrels.
On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing.
Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
“Mercurial, mystifying and tantalisingly missing.”
