The Illusionist

Why you should come & see our next film...


Sylvian Chomet has captured Jacques Tati to perfection in this delightful animation, but the real joy is the way he has captured Scotland , Edinburgh in particular in the most engaging detail >

Lone Star  

Set in modern day Texas the local sheriff must dig up the past to investigate a recently found skeleton. The search leads to his father who was legendary as a former sheriff, but also a challenge as a father. The conclusion of Lone Star is one of the few times that I have been taken completely by surprise by a film.

Following a theme introduced in “The Illusionist”earlier in our season, this 1923 silent gem gives us Harold Lloyd trying to improve the footfall at a department store. His plans for a publicity stunt go horribly wrong when it turns out the stunt man is wanted by the law... Harold has to do it himself, with spectacular results, including the famous clock encounter.

This great film is a little short on plot but long on the visuals, so seemed a perfect opportunity to bring in the live music and let the piano shine against an exciting backdrop. Following his wonderful performances with “Gold Rush” and “The General”, we are really looking forward to Dave Watt's musical take on yet another silent classic. I first saw this film as a child in Suffolk village cinema, where I remember you had to go along during the day and write your name in a book outside to secure your seat for the evening show.



Before LA Confidential and Gladiator, in 1991, not too many people outside Australia knew who Russell Crowe was. Here is a chance to see him before he became a mega star. Proof pairs him up with Hugo Weaving and is a clever film that is hard to categorize. It is a terribly sad, outrageously funny and at times terrifying tale of a blind man who takes photographs, a mate who describes them for him and the twisted housekeeper who is in between them.

New director Richard Ayaode (IT Crowd's Moss) scores first time with this touching, quirky but above all very funny coming of age story set deep in suburban Wales. With a brilliant soundtrack too, this is 93 minutes of your life that couldn't be better spent!

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

There's a rule in film clubs that one should always see any film one imposes on others. I'd better go & see this then... fingers crossed we can get a licence to show it in 2012.
