7.30 p.m. GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL

The film traces the meteoric rise of Queen through their iconic songs, their near-implosion as Freddie Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid where Mercury leads the band in a legendary performance.

Stan and Ollie – 19th September

FLICKS IN THE STICKS AT GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL

Thursday 19th September 7.30 p.m. – ‘Stan and Ollie’ (cert. 12A)

With convincingly real performances by Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly, ‘Stan and Ollie’ is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. We get to see behind the scene glimpses of life on the road in post-war Britain and how the hectic schedule starts to take it’s toll on the pair and the show. But with the arrival of their wives – an interesting double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, eventually rescues what initially looks like being a disastrous flop.

The running time of this film is 1 hour 38 minutes, so there will be no interval. Admission (at the door): Adults £5.00, Children (under 18) £3.00. Discounted tickets (Adults £4.50, Children £2.50) can be purchased in advance from Tony Beckwith (01989 720358 or mtonybeckwith@gmail.com). As usual, tea, coffee and biscuits will be available and you are welcome to bring your own drinks (glasses provided). The doors will be open from 7.00 for those that would like to meet up with friends for a drink and a chat before the film.
