The Giant -Weds 6th December, 8.15(PG) (86mins, subtitled)
Rikard is an autistic and severely deformed man who was separated from his mother at birth. Thirty years later he is convinced that he will get her back if only he wins the Scandinavian Championship of pétanque. He tries to do the impossible. His fragile physique and a harsh judging environment are not going to stop him. Plus there is a 200 foot giant on his side. Exclusive to Pitshanger Pictures.
Saturday 9th December, 8pm. Churchill (PG) (105 mins)
96 hours before the World War II invasion of Normandy, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill struggles with his severe reservations about Operation Overlord and his increasingly marginalized role in the war effort.
Weds 13th Dec, 8.15pm, London Symphony (E) + The Plank (U)
Two quite different but complementary silent films. London Symphony is new and was recently Mark Kermode’s film of the week and is an ode to London. The Plank is a 1960’s classic starring Eric Sykes and Tommy Cooper. Never bettered.
Sunday 17th December, 7pm. La Cenerentola (E) (152 mins)
This has to be one of the greatest productions ever of an opera. Ponnelle’s production is an all time classic, funny but with plenty of pathos. Abaddo conducts with élan and fizz and the cast is absolutely superb. To single anyone out would be an injustice but by the end if you’re not hopelessly in love with Frederica von Stade then you’re not human!
