In early 2020, we planned to show two films as a pilot to judge levels of interest in running Flicks in the Sticks at the Village Hall. The first screening (A Star is Born) was a great success with over 50 attendees. And then Covid struck…
We are planning to re-launch this autumn. We have scheduled two screenings, as shown below. If levels of interest are still high, we will book further screenings over the winter and spring. If you are keen to see Flicks in the Sticks at the Village Hall, do come along in September and October.
Thurs 30th Sept: Green Book
In 1962, “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, looking for work becomes the driver for African-American classical pianist Don Shirley on his concert tour into the Deep South states. They begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America’s racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer barely get along. The disparate pair witness and endure appalling injustices on the road and nurture a friendship and understanding that changes both their lives. Starring:
Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Thurs 21st Oct: Ammonite
Francis Lee’s (God’s Own Country) fictional account of the life of 19th century palaeontologist Mary Anning packs emotional force. Kate Winslet plays pioneering scientist Anning, with Saoirse Ronan as the married woman on a rest cure who becomes her companion. Set in the seaside town of Lyme Regis, it shows up how women have traditionally been erased from history of science but above all, it is a love story of extraordinary intimacy. Starring: Kate Winslet, Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Jones, James McArdlel
Doors open 7.00 pm. Screening starts 7.30 pm.
A bar will be open and ice creams, tea and coffee will be on sale.
Tickets are £5 each which includes a strip of raffle tickets for the prize draw.
We hope to see as many of you as possible.
