Adults:
£5.00
130mins

Dir. Alice Rohrwacher (Italy, 2018, 130mins 12)

A kind-hearted sharecropper in rural Italy befriends a rich nobleman.  This Cannes winner is a beautiful, mysterious film combining magical realism and social commentary where events take a very strange turn in a modern Brothers Grimm fairy tale.  On the critics' list as one of the best films of the year. 


Fri, 08/11/2019 - 2:00pm
Civic Hall, Holmfirth
Adults:
£5.00
128mins

Dir. Henri-Georges Clouzot (France 1960, 128mins 15)

 

Bardot is magnificent in Clouzot's last masterpiece as the suicidal bohemian from the provinces with a troubled childhood who has killed her boyfriend. A scathing indictment of patriarchy and a forensic look at the nature of truth in a classic court case movie.

Kids:
£4.00
Adults:
£5.00
101mins

Dir. Benedikt Erlingson (Iceland 2018, 101mins 12)

 

Another wonderful success from Iceland. Hugely enjoyable taut comedy thriller about a lone female secret environmental activist who declares war on the local aluminium industry.

111mins

Dir. Danny Boyle (UK 2019 111mins 12)

101mins

Dir. Tom Harper (UK 2018, 101mins 15)

 

Jessie Buckley lights up the screen in her debut film with strong support from Julie Walters in a refreshingly unsentimental bittersweet film of a young wayward Glaswegian young mother who dreams of becoming a Nashville country star.

Southgate Theatre, Honley
Adults:
£5.00
133mins

Dir. Bo Burnham (US 2018, 94mins, 15)

 

Hollywood's best films are in the coming of age genre. Obama's favourite film of last year is a bold and painfully funny take on the awkwardness of adolescence in an age of social media that looks and feels like the real thing. Elsie Fisher as the 13 year-old is simply brilliant.

100mins

Dir. John Lasseter (US 2019, 100mins U)

 

A hugely enjoyable road trip of old and new friends that is a funny and emotional must-see for the young and old alike.  An excellent Saturday matinee for all the family.

Dir. Paul Adam (UK 2019, 89mins)

Once one of the dirtiest rivers in Europe, the Don is now alive with wildlife with fish, otters and herons. In a journey rich with insight into the history and landscape of the river environmentalists, those who worked along it and volunteers who faced a daunting task talk about how they worked together to clean the river up.  Award-winning Sheffield writer, Paul Adam, travels the length of the Don, from its source high on the bleak moors of the Pennines to its mouth at Goole. 

 

Following the film, locally-based volunteers from the River Holme Connections charity who are engaged in improving the River Holme catchment area for wildlife, people and the Holme Valley's economy, discuss their conservation efforts.

 

THIS IS A FREE EVENT - NO TICKET REQUIRED - ALL WELCOME

Dir. Simone de Vries (Holland 2006, 64mins)

 

Blond, Blue Eyes - documentary biography of Holland's most famous actor who moved effortlessly between art classics, Hollywood and cult slasher movies, producing great performances and, in Blade Runner, one of the most memorable scenes in cinema. 

 

Followed by

 

Dir. Robert Harmon (US 1986, 98mins 15)

 

The Hitcher - a favourite of Hauer fans. A naive college boy crosses the path of the devil on a lost highway in a sleek action thriller car ride that is pure adrenalin entertainment.

112mins

Dirs. Gabe & Ben Turner (US 2018 112mins 12)

A history of the sound of young America from the late fifties to the early seventies.

Very much a Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson vehicle but full of stunning, largely unseen, archive footage of all the Tamla greats in the studio and in concert.
