Nostalgic Cinema: Born Free (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: Born Free

Director: James Hill

Starring:  Virginia McKenna, Bill Travers

Born Free is a 1966 British drama film starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers as Joy and George Adamson, a real-life couple who raised Elsa the Lioness, an orphaned lion cub, to adulthood, and released her into the wilderness of Kenya.  The screenplay, written by blacklisted Hollywood writer Lester Cole, was based upon Joy Adamson's 1960 non-fiction book Born Free. Born Free, and its musical score by John Barry, won numerous awards.

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

The White Crow (12A)

The White Crow

Directors: Ralph Fiennes

Writers: David Hare

Stars: Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann

Ralph Fiennes returns to the director’s chair for the third time after 2011’s Coriolanus and 2013’s The Invisible Woman for this riveting account of ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev's defection to the West, written for the screen by David Hare and inspired by the biography by Julie Kavanagh.

Beginning with his birth on a Siberian train in 1938, the film revisits Nureyev’s early impetuous days and his tutelage under ballet master Alexander Pushkin (Fiennes), all building towards the fateful day of his defection in Paris 1961.

Newcomer Oleg Ivenko (himself a prominent Russian dancer) captures the intensity, skill, and single-mindedness of the charismatic Nureyev; reflecting how a lifetime of rebellion and ambition influenced his radical decision.

Fiennes gives a hypnotic performance as Nureyev's favourite teacher, Alexander Pushkin. London Evening Standard

Roses and raptures, please, for Ivenko, who is not only as beautiful as Nureyev, and dances sublimely, he can act, besides. The Scottish Herald

There are moments of greatness here - in the climax of the final act, the defection itself - where the direction is as lean and agile as any of the dancers. Observer

Shlomo's Beatbox Adventure For Kids!

Shlomo's Beatbox Adventure For Kids!

Shlomo was sadly unable to get to the Beehive on Friday 19th April due to a car accident. Delighted to say that he wasnt hurt and has been able to rearrange his diary for this show.

Shlomo is a world record-breaking beatboxer who makes all kinds of music using just his mouth and a mic. Join this sonic superhero and become one of his sidekicks in a world of funny sounds, brilliant noises and cool music, whether you’re aged 1 or 101!

★★★★★ BroadwayBaby:

"Shlomo had the audience eating out of his hand  from the start. A naturally gifted teacher, Shlomo wanted to show the next generation how to beatbox and they loved him for it.

Shlomo ended this joyous hour with a demonstration of where these simple techniques can lead and brought the house down in wonder at the impossible sounds coming from this man’s mouth. This is a guy at the very  top of his game and he has to be seen - or heard - to be believed!

Listening to the buzz from the children outside after the show, they clearly had a wonderful time. They excitedly queued up to meet Shlomo and high-five their hero.

Throughout, it was clear that the parents were having just as good a time as their kids – maybe even better."

‘The kid’s good. Jaw-droppingly good.’ The Guardian

‘Forget one-man band, this guy is a one-man music festival.’ The Times
