Friday 27th March 20:00  £5

 

On 6 April 1917, aerial reconnaissance has observed that the German army, which has pulled back from a sector of the Western Front in northern France, is not in retreat but has made a strategic withdrawal to the new Hindenburg Line, where they are waiting to overwhelm the British with artillery. In the British trenches, with field telephone lines cut, two young British soldiers, Lance Corporals William Schofield, a veteran of the Somme, and Tom Blake, are ordered by General Erinmore to carry a message to Colonel Mackenzie of the Second Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment, calling off a scheduled attack that would jeopardise the lives of 1,600 men, including Blake’s brother Lieutenant Joseph Blake.

 

 

 

 

 

Schofield and Blake cross no man’s land to reach the abandoned German trenches. In an underground barracks, they discover a booby-trap tripwire, which is promptly triggered by a rat.  They arrive at an abandoned farmhouse, where they witness a German plane being shot down. Schofield and Blake rescue the German pilot from the burning plane. Schofield is then picked up by a passing British unit.

A destroyed canal bridge near Écoust-Saint-Mein prevents the British lorries from crossing. Schofield chooses to part with them at the bridge, but before he does, one of the unit’s officers Captain Smith, warns Schofield that Colonel Mackenzie is someone who would rather fight than follow orders. He then uses what is left of the bridge to cross alone, and quickly comes under fire from a German sniper. Schofield escapes soldiers by hiding in the basement of an abandoned building, and stumbles into the hiding place of a French woman with an infant. She treats his wounds, and he comforts the infant by reciting a poem, giving the woman his canned food and milk from the farm. Despite her pleas, Schofield leaves soon after, realising that time is running out. He encounters more German soldiers. Being chased, he escapes by jumping into a river. He is swept over a waterfall before reaching the riverbank by morning. In the forest, he finds D Company of the 2nd Devons, which is in the last wave of the attack. As the company starts to move toward the front, Schofield tries to reach Colonel Mackenzie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Realising that the trenches are too crowded for him to make it to Mackenzie in time, Schofield sprints across the open battlefield, just as the infantry begins its charge. He forces his way into meeting Mackenzie, who reads the message and reluctantly calls off the attack. Schofield is told that Joseph was in the first wave, and he searches for him among the wounded.

 

Starring Colin Firth and Dominique Cumberbatch amongst others

Starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellan, Roy Courtnay is a long-time con artist who, along with his business partner Vincent, manipulates people into giving him access to their finances through a string of deception and false identities. In 2009, his latest target is Betty McLeish, a former history teacher at Oxford who lost her husband a year ago and has savings in excess of two million pounds. Betty also reveals that she is suffering from a series of minor strokes that may kill her within a year.

Betty discovers Roy is not who he says he is but accepts his explanation and dismisses her son’s objections. However, Betty is not who she appears to be either. ‘Things’ take a turn and the outcome is not quite as expected.

Abominable – U

Friday 22nd November 18:00. £4 and £3

 

This animation studio never lets us down. From the same studio that brought you the ever popular How To Train Your Dragon, Abominable scores a staggering 95% from audiences, offering a beautifully animated and overall engaging adventure that the whole family can enjoy.

After discovering a Yeti on the roof of her apartment building, teenage Yi and her two friends embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family. But to do so, they must stay one step ahead of a wealthy financier and a determined zoologist who want to capture the beast for their own gain.

One evening, Yi, a young teenager, encounters the Yeti near her cubby house on the roof of her Shanghai apartment building, which she names “Everest.” While hiding him from Burnish Industries’ helicopters, Yi gains his trust by feeding him Baozi and treating his wounds. Yi learns that Everest wants to reunite with his family on Mount Everest while Everest learns about Yi’s desire to travel across China. When Burnish Industries’ private security forces closes in on Everest’ hiding place, Everest flees with Yi. After narrowly escaping a Burnish helicopter at the Oriental Pearl Tower, Yi and Everest flee on a ship carrying red cola cans, followed by her 2 friends

Yi, Everest, and the boys reach a port in southern China and travel on a truck. After their crate falls off the truck, they end up in a forest. There, Everest awes the humans with his mystical powers of stimulating growth among blueberry  plants. 

Continuing their journey, the humans and Everest eventually reach the Himalayas. While crossing a bridge, they are trapped on both sides by Burnish Industries’ forces. However, Mr Burnish experiences a change of heart after seeing Everest protecting the children; causing him to experience a flashback to his first encounter with the yeti which was protecting its young. 

After the inevitable ‘bady’ trying to spoil things, all turns out well with Mr Burnish agreeing to keep Everest’s existence a secret in order to protect the Yetis, and helping to reunite him with this family on Mount Everest.

This has the potential to appeal the younger little ones as well as older ones, an excellent film for a true ‘Family Film Night’. Tickets will be on sale at Tarvin PO very soon and will be on sale on the door as per normal.
