Nostalgic Cinema: Easter Parade (U)

Nostalgic Cinema: Easter Parade

Director: Charles Walters

Starring: Judy Garland, Fred Astaire

A seasonal musical from 1948 with music from Irving Berlin, including some of Astaire and Garland's best known songs, such as 'Easter Parade', 'Steppin' Out with my Baby' and 'We're a couple of Swells'. A nightclub performer hires a naive chorus girl to become his new dance partner to make his former partner jealous and to prove he can make any partner a star.

Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.

Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

TRIP community transport can provide a lift to and from the film within Honiton. Please book a place with them on 01404 46529

Tickets £3.80 - includes tea and biscuits.

Green Book (12A)

Green Book

Starring Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali

Director Peter Farrelly

Duration: 127 Mins.

Oscar Winner for Best Picture, Best Actor in Supporting Role (Mahershala Ali) and Best Original Screenplay.

'Green Book' is the uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship that transcended race and class with strong performances from lead actors Mortensen and Ali.

Set in 1962, Italian-American Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to chauffeur African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a concert tour through the Deep South. Don is aware of the troubles that he might face in different locations due to the colour of his skin and requires someone to act as both driver and bouncer. They must rely on The Green Book, a guide to the few establishments that are safe for African-Americans and embark on a journey that will change both of their lives.

Director Peter Farrelly ('Dumb and Dumber',  'There’s Something About Mary') succeeds brilliantly in making the vital subject of racial division in the 1960s America into a smart and charming film.

Capernaum (15)


Starring: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw and Boluwatife Treasure Bankole

Director: Nadine Labaki

Duration: 126 mins.

Lebanese with English Subtitles

Cannes Jury Prize Winner when it received a 15 minute standing ovation. Nominated for BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe Awards.

From acclaimed director Nadine Labaki comes a stunning and unforgettable new film.

In a courtroom, a young boy named Zain stands before a judge. He asks to sue his own parents for giving him life. The circumstances that have brought him to this point take us on a journey through his poverty-stricken upbringing in Beirut where he lives with his family.

Forced to live by his wits in order to survive, Zain’s life reaches a turning point and young Zain takes to the road. While looking for work at a fairground, he meets Cockroach Man and befriends a young woman who is working illegally as a cleaner and struggling to care for her baby, Jonas. Zain and Jonas form a touching bond but things get much more complicated when circumstances force Zain to make choices that will have huge ramifications.

'Capernaum' is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit – a battle cry for the forgotten, the unwanted and the lost that offers hope in the most unexpected of places.

'Capernaum', a sprawling tale wrenched from real life, goes beyond the conventions of documentary or realism into a mode of representation that doesn’t quite have a name. It’s a fairy tale and an opera, a potboiler and a news bulletin, a howl of protest and an anthem of resistance. New York Times

Royal Opera Live Screening: Faust (12A)

Royal Opera Live Screening: Faust

Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870s Paris in David McVicar’s spectacular production of Gounod’s best-loved opera.

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling.

Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognisable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

Sung in French with English subtitles. A delayed live screening from The Royal Opera House.

Director: David McVicar

Set designs: Charles Edwards

Costume designs: Brigitte Reiffenstuel

Lighting design: Paule Constable

Choreography: Michael Keegan-Dolan

Approximate running time: 3 hours 45 minutes, including one interval.

A cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village and tries to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy).

As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

This re-telling of the story focuses on events leading up to their fame and their effect on other people. Already being compared to other British feel-good hits like 'The Full Monty' and 'Calendar Girls'.

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

By John Gregory

Presented by Harley's Aunt Productions

Directed by Katie Jones

“The outrageous, time bendingly funny play by John Gregory”

Featuring live music from top tribute act Bootleg Blondie.

Lead vocalist Debbie Harris (yes - her real name!) was picked out of 15,000 applicants to represent Debbie Harry on two shows of “Even Better than the Real Thing” on BBC1. She has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and, like her heroine, is typically outrageous on stage.

The show “White Wedding” tells the story of a group of accidental time travellers from the present day who find themselves transported back to the darkness of World War II. Apparently even the most expensive iPhone is of little use in such circumstances!

Only true love can overcome such danger. But who is in love with whom? And where to find a white wedding dress in the middle of a world war?

Love Comedy? Love Blondie? You have to see this!

Greta (15)


Starring:  Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Director: Neil Jordan

Screenplay: Neil Jordan & Ray Wright

Duration: 108 mins.

A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) doesn't think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness. Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends - but Greta's maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta's life is what it seems in this suspense thriller from Academy Award winning director Neil Jordan ('The Crying Game', 'Michael Collins').

Jordan contrives to make Huppert’s mere presence in the frame almost absurdly frightening, and Huppert compounds the fright with elegant comedy, so that while the movie is impossible to take seriously, it’s also hard to resist, like an unattended bag on the subway that’s just begging you to look inside.
