Film Club

Our next feature is Goodbye, Christopher Robin on November 26th, 7 for 7:30.

A rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive, Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?

Trailer

We will be providing a bar and ice creams prior to the film from 7pm with a short introduction and the feature at 7:30pm. We will show the feature straight through without an interval. The hall now has a widescreen format projector screen, a player  which will use Blu-ray format discs, the best quality available, along with brand new large stereo speakers.
