Sunday Sunday 15th January 2017 – 5pm – Screening of Youth – An Italian comedy/drama made in 2015 directed by Paolo Sorrentino and starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz. Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again. The screening is followed by optional supper at £5 a head at 7pm which must be prebooked on 01768 88445.

Sunday 19th February 2017 – 5pm – Screening of Golden Years (2016 UK) cert 15 Director: John Miller, Stars: Alun Armstrong, Phil Davis, Bernard Hill. Fate, the pensions crisis and a steadfast refusal to accept the injustice of old age have contrived to force law abiding, retired couple Arthur and Martha Goode into a life of crime. Refusing to take the loss of their pensions lying down and to fade away into their declining years, our characters decide to fight back. They decide to take back what was theirs in the first place and start robbing banks. This film fits into the genres of action, comedy, crime and drama. The screening is followed by optional curry supper at £5 a head which must be prebooked on 01768 88445.

Sunday 12th March 2017 – 5pm – Screening of Swallows & Amazons (2016, UK) cert PG A remake of this familiar story filmed in the Lake District. Two different groups of children encounter one another on a small piece of land in a lake which they both live by. Both groups try to claim the land as theirs and do so by role playing as two sets of enemy pirates. Whilst this happens, they encounter another boat and a stranger. They must now work together to work out who he is and why he is there, but have they got themselves involved in something much bigger? Admission £5, children £3.50.

Sunday 23rd April 2017 – 7:30pm – London Klezmer Quartet The London Klezmer Quartet is a dynamic group of performers whose deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds. LKQ was formed in 2009 by a group of klezmer specialists keen to explore the almost-lost wedding music tradition of Jewish eastern Europe. The band was swiftly picked up by some of the UK’s foremost folk and world music promoters and are also one of the few groups in the world who lead Yiddish dances that this music would traditionally have accompanied. The concert is part of the Highlights Rural Touring Programme. Tickets Adult £10, Child £5, Family £25.
