The Good Liar (15)

Friday 24th January 20:00. £5

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.

Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps

Friday 8th November 18:00. £6  (Age 7+).  SIGNED PERFORMANCE

A first for the Community Centre, this show will be suitable for the deaf and hard of hearing as it will be a signed performance.

Celebrated poet and broadcaster MURRAY LACHLAN YOUNG (Radio 4, Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music poet in residence,) stars in this thrilling new family performance perfect for audiences young and old!

The story opens after a funeral –  

As a result of the death of both his parents our hero – the 7 year old Crispin (or Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps-to give him his full name) inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And when that butler, Kenilworth, begins to tell him of the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors our story takes flight on darkly comic wings.

The acclaimed Raddlesham Mumps mixes compelling story telling of a Gothic tale with a brilliant musical score (by Arun Ghosh), oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness. It will make your family shudder and laugh out loud.


‘‘A gloriously Gothic tale…
a real theatrical treat.’’

Colchester Gazette

Kate Copstic, The Scotsman

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.

The option of card payment is now established and offer in the bar as well as the box office. No need to pile in the car and trundkle through the traffic – just pop down to your local community centre where friends, young and old, can meet for a cosy evening of cinema.
