FLICKS IN THE STICKS – “Hidden Figures” – 21st Sept

 AT GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL  Thursday 21st September 7.30 p.m. – ‘Hidden Figures’ (cert. PG)    -
As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the “human computers” in one of the greatest operations in U.S. History: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. Based on the unbelievably true and so far untold life stories of three of these women, we follow them as they quickly rose through the mainly white male-dominated ranks of NASA to achieve a personal and national dream.

The running time of this film is 2 hours 7 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.

FLICKS IN THE STICKS – ‘Their Finest’ (cert. 12A)

 GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL  - Thursday 19th October 7.30 p.m. – ‘Their Finest’ (cert. 12A)

In 1940 London, with the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realizing their films could use “a woman’s touch,” the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter. Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy). As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and their colorful cast and crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.

The running time of this film is just under 2 hours, so there will not be an 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.
