New Film Season

We don’t have a cinema in Tideswell – yet we are able to see films each month right on our doorstep at the George Inn! Tideswell Cinema, run by a small team of volunteers, has announced an exciting programme for its latest season, which runs from September to May. First to be shown is “Shine”, on Thursday 25th September – a film with a musical theme to coincide with the Arts Festival being held at St John’s Church that week. This moving drama is based on the true life story of brilliant pianist David Helfgoth. Pushed by his ambitious father and teachers, he suffers a mental breakdown, and only returns to the piano many years later. Geoffrey Rush takes the lead role, and his stunning performance earned him an Oscar. This will be shown at 7.30pm upstairs in the George Inn, and as with all the films, is open to non-members who are very welcome to join for the evening (£4.75).

The season, as well as a monthly film, includes a Saturday Winter Double Bill in January which this year is featuring Humphrey Bogart. There are two highly acclaimed foreign language films (Chilean film ‘No’ in November and Saudi film ‘Wadjda’ in February). ‘Rush’ (October) is based around the relationship of racing drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda; ‘Saving Mr Banks’ is our Christmas choice, and January features stunning Australian Outback scenery in the film ‘Tracks’. The Selfish Giant’, set in Yorkshire (March), ‘Cat Balou’, a comedy Western (April) and ‘There will be blood’, a drama set in the early twentieth century oil rush (May), complete the programme.

Details of all the forthcoming films can be found on the cinema club’s website Tideswell Cinema also screens live performances from the National Theatre, the Royal Opera House and the Royal Shakespeare Company, details of which are on the website and are featured in Village Voice.
