A warm hearted film for a chilly, frosty January evening

img_4795

Happy New Year to you all!

We’re all no doubt a tad overfed from the festive season, with the prospect of tightening our belts in the New Year (if we can!) after our Christmas excess – the perfect time to make use of your FilmCrew membership and come along to our next screening this Friday 11th January.

Kumail Nanjani writes (along with his wife Emily V. Gordon) and stars in this heartwarming and deeply funny film, our first offering of 2019.

Pakistan-born comedian Kumail and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations, and his true feelings for her…

Doors open at 19:00, with the film starting at 19:30.

As ever, tea/coffee and cake will be available, in return for a donation. Don’t forget to make use of our DVD/Blu-Ray library.

The world has gone to the dogs

This Friday (7th Dec) sees our fourth screening of the season, and this time its something a bit different… a stop motion animation from the mind of Wes Anderson (Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr Fox, Rushmore).

Isle of Dogs (2)

An outbreak of dog flu has spread through the city of Megasaki, Japan, and Mayor Kobayashi has demanded all dogs to be sent to Trash Island. On the island, a young boy named Atari sets out to find his lost dog, Spots, with the help of five other dogs… with many obstacles along the way.

As this is our Christmas screening, we’ll be offering guests a glass of Mulled Wine and a small selection of tasty, festive nibbles.

Doors open at 19:00, with the film starting at 19:30.

In the face of fear they found strength in each other

1For 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:

Falling between the cracks in society…

1

We’re only a few days away from our second screening of the season, and for this one we’re taking you to the Middle East for the story of three very different, young Palestinian women sharing a flat in Tel Aviv.

The three women suffer from belonging neither to traditional Arab society nor to secular Westernised society; they live in the space “in between” these two, often placing them at odds with their families and the cultures surrounding them.

 

There’s still time for friends and family to take advantage of this year’s membership offer – this season’s 8 remaining films for £25, that’s the price of a cup of coffee per film.  Membership forms can be found on our website, or at the Crewkerne Local Information Centre in the Town Hall – or better still, come along to Friday’s screening.

 

Don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter; we really appreciate those of you who do and help to share our events with the community.
