For the 100th anniversary of the first world war’s end, we’re showing this excellent, recent film version of RC Sherriff’s classic 1928 stage play, adapted by Simon Reade and directed by Saul Dibb.
Asa Butterfield is the young Second Lieutenant Raleigh, newly arrived at the front in 1918. In all his youthful naivety, he asks to join C company in the trenches, because the commanding officer there is Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin), who was a few years ahead of Raleigh at school and a family friend.
The reality of the situation is soon brought home to him, at a time when the outcome of the war was still far from certain…
Doors open at 7pm, with the screening starting at 7:30. Entrance is £6 for visitors.
Tea/Coffee and cake will be available and don’t forget that members can take advantage of unlimited rentals from our DVD/Blu Ray library.
Including this screening, there are 7 films left in this season- membership is still available at £25 for the year; that’s less than £4 per film. If you know someone who is interested, why not bring them and show them what they are missing.
Wadham School have recently installed new fences and gates around the perimeter of the complex, but parking and entrance is unchanged for our screening – see below:
