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


Tickets £3.80 - includes tea and biscuits.

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

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks launch their new album, Feather, with a UK tour.


In April 2018, Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin) retreated to a remote cottage in Ulpha, western Cumbria. They breathed in the mountain view, banked up the fire, and took their instruments out of their cases. Then they sat down, and wrote. In escaping the everyday chaos of busy lives, they realised how caught up in the misery of the 24 hour news cycle they were; absorbed in the heartbreak of the world, they had lost sight of its beauty. Tired of the navel-gazing tendencies of sad song writing, and the terrible events frequently depicted in the folk ballad tradition, they decided to turn their attention to an oft overlooked but vital facet of our lives: hope.


Swiftly, a set of songs and tunes emerged. Stories of wonder from the natural world; tales of rejoicing and long lost returns; and simple thanksgiving for their own surroundings and place in the landscape. Informed by world rhythms, British folk roots, and the duo's penchant for making as much noise as possible with only two people, the album is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope.


"Edgelarks continue to soar and fly on their voyage of innovation" Bright Young Folk


"A confident pair of artists who are able to conjure up slickly atmospheric sound-worlds" Folk Radio UK


“Keen, curious and concerned intellects are at work here. Hannah Martin is an enthralling singer; Phillip Henry plays all manner of guitars and the harmonica, terrifically“ Julian May, Songlines ★★★★★

Red Joan (12A)

Red Joan

Director: Trevor Nunn

Cast includes: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes

Duration: 111 mins.


Judi Dench stars as Joan Stanley in Trevor Nunn’s drama inspired by the extraordinary true story of the KGB’s longest-serving British agent.


Joan’s tranquil retirement in rural England is shattered when she’s arrested by MI5. Why? She’s been hiding an incredible past: she’s one of the most influential spies in living history.


Rewind to Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a Russian saboteur, Leo. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy.


Years later, while working at a top-secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible. Would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace? Red Joan is the taut and emotional retelling of one woman’s sacrifice in incredible circumstances.

Royal Ballet Live: Romeo & Juliet (12A)

Royal Ballet Live: Romeo & Juliet

Live cinema screening from the Royal Ballet. Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th-century ballet masterpiece.


Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan

Music: Sergey Prokofiev

Designer: Nicholas Georgiadis

Lighting designer: John B. Read

Performed by: The Royal Ballet


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.


The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals.

Tolkien (12A)

Tolkien

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Colm Meaney, Lilly Collins

Director: Dome Karukoski

Duration: 112 mins


John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (J.R.R.) is known as the 'father' of modern fantasy literature with his famous middle-earth fantasy novels 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings'. In later life he was an Oxford Professor in English and Anglo-Saxon. However, 'Tolkien' explores the formative years of the orphaned author (played by Nicholas Hoult) as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.


The film then takes him to the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear the ‘fellowship’ apart. Tolkien himself served from 1915-1920 and it is the experiences that he lived through there which were used to illuminate his fantasy lands.

The Canterbury Tales - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

The Canterbury Tales - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By Geoffrey Chaucer

Adapted by John Hartoch

Directed by Kirstie Davis

Designed by Alex Berry

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2019


Following on from their wonderful dramatisation of 'The Mill on the Floss' last year we are delighted to be welcoming back the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as part of their West Country Tour 2019.


This year they will be presenting their production of 'The Canterbury Tales'. There aren't many shows still delighting audiences after over 600 years but this is one. 'The Canterbury Tales' is a touchstone of English literature, credited as an important moment in the popularisation of the English language in mainstream literature.


A colourful cast of characters set off on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. On the way they start a story-telling contest and compete to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully and vividly alive by the students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.


All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.


Opened in 1946 by Laurence Olivier, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has grown a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent and has some notable alumni to its name including Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman and many more. The annual West Country tour gives you a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, on stage today!

Amazing Grace (U)

Amazing Grace

Directors: Alan Elliot, Sydney Pollack.

Featuring: Aretha Franklin, Reverend James Cleveland, The Southern California Community Choir.

Duration: 88 mins.


In 1971, the undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, recorded an album of gospel music live at church. The result: the defining work of her career.


Amazing Grace would go on to become one of Franklin's most commercially successful and beloved albums. These inspirational live sessions were captured across their two nights by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sydney Pollack.


Unseen for almost five decades, the footage holds up as document of one of America's greatest artists and activists, captured with Pollack's unfussy cinéma vérité but electrifying in energy.


Franklin is herself a miracle in undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances you'll ever see, with her father Reverend C.L. Franklin, gospel legends Clara Ward and Mother Ward of the Ward Family Singers, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts amongst the star-studded audience.

Destination Wedding (15)

Destination Wedding

Director: Victor Levin

Cast includes: Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder

Duration: 97 mins.


When Frank (Keanu Reeves) and Lindsay (Winona Ryder) meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and each other. As the weekend's events continually force them together -- and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests -- Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen.


Destination Wedding sees Reeves and Ryder together again in an acerbic, misanthropic romantic comedy. If you have struggled to keep smiling through weddings this could be the film for you!
