COMING UP IN OUR AUTUMN PROGRAMME
Fisherman’s Friends + talk (12A) – 26th September 2019 at 1900 – Buy tickets
A fast living, cynical London music executive reluctantly heads to Cornwall on a colleague’s stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen. He finds himself drawn into the community and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship. The film will be preceded by a talk from Jane Cunningham of Chichester District Council introducing the short film “Sea’s The Day”, a documentary about the fishermen and women of Selsey and the heritage of an industry that stretches back over 1000 years in the town.
Green Book (to mark Black History Month) (12A) – 10th October 2019 at 1930 – Buy tickets
Concert pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) is on a concert tour in the Jim Crow-era Deep South, accompanied by an Italian-American driver/bodyguard played by Viggo Mortensen, based on screenwriter Nick Vallelonga’s father Tony. Green Book was the name of the celebrated guide book that enabled black motorists to avoid racial discrimination as they travelled across the US. A fascinating and personal take on 60s America. The film won Best Picture Oscar in 2019 and further Oscars for Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay and is a special choice to mark Black History Month.
The Little Stranger (12A) – 24th October 2019 at 1930 – Buy tickets
A home-grown Hallowe’en treat! The Little Stranger tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own. A costume drama with surprises – just the thing as the nights are drawing in.
Rocketman (15) – 7th November 2019 at 1930 – Buy tickets
An epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years. Directed by Dexter Fletcher and written by Lee Hall, it stars Taron Egerton as John, with Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard. The film follows Elton’s early days as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his musical partnership with Bernie Taupin and his incredible success in America. Many of the artist’s most famous songs are included in unusual and striking settings. But don’t worry – familiar scenes, such as the Kiki Dee duet, are not overlooked!
The Silent Enemy + talk (U) – 21st November 2019 at 1900 – Buy tickets
Silent Enemy is the true story of young Lieutenant Lionel “Buster” Crabb, who in 1941 arrives in Gibraltar to learn the rudiments of deep-sea diving. Crabb isn’t interested in recreation, however; there’s a war on, and it is common knowledge that a band of Italian frogmen have been sabotaging the British naval forces. Without official permission, Crabb and a band of hardy volunteers take on the task of scuttling the enemy’s guerrilla activities. The film will be introduced by a short talk from Gosport Diving Museum.
