Dir. Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo, UK, 1965

1940: the Nazis successfully invade the UK. The television series SS-GB was a poor fantasy, this pseudo-documentary made by a young Brownlow and Mollo about the British rebels' attempt to free the country is an extraordinary achievement of independent film-making made with invention.


Biographer of British Fascist Sir Oswald Mosley, Dr Stephen Dorril will talk about his research on the role of the British Resistance Organisation and Nazis invasion plans for the UK.

Dir. Basil Dearden, UK, 1950


Newly remastered, this crime thriller centred on new police officer Andy Mitchell, his mentor, George Dixon, and young criminal hooligan, Dirk Bogarde, was immensely popular. The first film to look at the day-to-day activities of the police, it remains an interesting social document of the times.

Uplifting and moving true story of the journey of an Indian street-child to adopted Australia is an excellent family drama full of mystery and romance, and a whirlwind of emotions with fine performances from Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Dir. Henry Selick, US 1993, 73mins PG

Burton's most beloved film is Disney at its best.  A stop-motion animated dark fantasy in which Santa Claus is kidnapped. Not for all children this spooky film just shows how brilliant Christmas is.

Dir. Michael Gracey (US 2017, 105mins PG)

The audience hit of the year. Auto-tuned and full of CGI, it makes no difference to the sensational reception of this exuberant celebration of the life of T.P. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). But don't forget the theme of discrimination, the excellent Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Keala Settle and the brilliant costumes of Ellen Mirojnick.

Sat, 26/05/2018 - 2:00pm

Dir. Henry Koster (US 1953, 98mins PG)

Marvellous passionate romance based on Daphne du Maurier's gothic novel about an anguished cousin (the first Hollywood role for Richard Burton) who tries to unravel the suspicious circumstances of the sudden death of his Cornish uncle, a man of property, and the involvement of his mysterious wife (Olivia de Havilland).

Sun, 27/05/2018 - 2:00pm

Dir. Rob Curry & Tim Plester (UK 2017, 94mins PG)

Wonderful, warm documentary on the life and work of folk music icon, Shirley Collins, who was central to the genre's revival in the 1960s through her rediscovery of old songs both here and in the United States. Now promoting a new highly praised album at the age of 82.
