Reel Life - Let's talk about the Movies
Films contain messages and film directors deal with issues, just like the writers of good books and sermons. We discuss films shown at our afternoon matinees and share thought-provoking film notes with our audiences. Come and explore the world of the movies with us.
Coming to our Community Cinema screen soon
Admission free - donations appreciated. Sub titles for people with hearing difficulties on all films unless stated otherwise
Mandela - Long Walk to Freedom
Saturday 27th September - two shows at 3.00pm and 7.30pm. Film rating 12
Our 2013 film is a walk through Nelson Mandela's long life from his boyhood herding cattle through his professional legal training, reluctant radicalisation, marriage to Winnie, revolutionary acts against apartheid, 27 year imprisonment, release from jail and his election as South Africa's first democratically elected president. Actor Idris Elba gives a towering performance as Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris shines as his firebrand wife, Winnie. The film is a worthy monument to a truly great man.
And for October through to November.......
