Tolkien (12A)


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


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!

NT Live: Small Island (15)

NT Live: Small Island

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Based on the novel by Andrea Levy

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.

The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

Nostalgic Cinema: The King and I

Director: Walter Lang

Starring: Yul Brynner, Deborah Kerr, Rita Moreno

The classic 1956 film adaptation of the much loved Rodgers & Hammerstein smash hit musical. Widowed Welsh mother Anna Loenowens (Deborah Kerr) becomes a governess and English tutor to the wives and many children of the stubborn King Mongkut of Siam (Yul Brynner). Anna and the king have a clash of personalities as she works to teach the royal family about the English language, customs and etiquette. Features such classic numbers as ' Hello, Young Lovers', 'Getting to Know You', 'Shall we Dance' and many more. Come along and 'Whistle a Happy Tune'.

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

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!

The Merry Wives of Windsor from Shakespeare's Globe (12A)

The Merry Wives of Windsor from Shakespeare's Globe

Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound in The Merry Wives of Windsor as Sir John Falstaff sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. But the ‘Merry Wives’ quickly cotton on to his tricks and decide to have a bit of fun of their own at Falstaff’s expense…

The Merry Wives of Windsor is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land. Drawing influences from 1930s British fashion, music and dance, this new production from Shakespeare’s Globe will celebrate women, and the power and beauty of nature. With its witty mix of verbal and physical humour, the play celebrates a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.

Directed by Elle While, the production stars Olivier Award-nominated Bryony Hannah (Call the Midwife, The Children’s Hour), Sarah Finigan (Suffragette, Upstart Crow) and Pearce Quigley (Hamlet, As You Like It) as Falstaff. The Merry Wives of Windsor will be staged at the beautiful and iconic Globe Theatre in London and will be broadcast live to cinemas.
