Upcoming Showings

The Heiress (U) (115 mins) – Monday 28th November, 8pm

To celebrate the 100th birthday of Olivia de Havilland (as well as that of St. Barnabas)we are showing this classic adaptation of “Washington Square” which won Olivia her second Oscar.  She plays a naive young woman and heiress, who is swept off her feet by the charming Morris Townsend in 19th century New York.

Miss Potter (12) (88 mins) Saturday 10th December, 8pm

Walks that fine line between charming and cloying with pleasing sure-footedness.  Renee Zellweger once again slips into a British accent to play the writer/illustrator.  Born into wealth, she gets the disapproval of her mother to do something as crass as publish a book…. and to fall in love with her publisher, Norman Warne.

 

HMS Pinafore (E) (130 mins) – Sunday 11th December, 7pm

“delightfully playful with just the right balance of tongue-in-cheek humour” (Daily Telegraph) ” a luminous cast, impeccable orchestra and spirited direction” ( The Age)

 

Notes on blindness (U) (90 mins) -Monday 12th December, 8pm

In the summer of 1983, writer and theologian John Hull went blind.  In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audio cassette.  Upon its publication in 1990, Oliver Sacks described the work as ‘ the most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read.  A masterpiece.’
