A Feast of Films! As well as Tideswell Cinema’s monthly film, we also have our third Double Bill with Meal of the season, featuring two films that star the much loved and respected British actor, Emma Thompson.

This popular event will be on SUNDAY 22nd April (please note the change of date from our printed programme), starting at 3.45 p.m. at The George. Our opening film is ‘The Remains of the Day’, in which Anthony Hopkins plays a straight-laced and strict butler in a stately home, and Emma Thompson is Miss Kenton the housekeeper. The butler’s understanding of decorum and appropriate behaviour is threatened when Miss Kenton falls in love with him. Both actors received an Oscar for their performances.

After the meal, we continue with the ‘quirkily humorous’ romantic comedy ‘The Tall Guy’, in which Emma is joined by Jeff Goldblum and Rowan Atkinson. It is important to book for this event, as we pre-order meals; full details are on www.tideswellcinema.com, or can be obtained by email mail@tideswellcinema.com or by phoning Margaret on 01298 871681. The meal costs £10, and films to non- members are £5, with payment ON THE DAY.

Our April film is the French ‘Day for Night’, and will be shown at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 26th at The George. This is Francois Truffaut’s loving and humorous tribute to the insanity of film making! The story features a committed film director struggling to complete his movie while coping with a myriad of crises, personal and professional, among cast and crew. Starring Jacqueline Bisset, the film won an Oscar and a BAFTA for Best Foreign Language Film in 1973.

The evening is open to all, with guest members paying £4, and there is no need to book.
