Dear Supporter,

The excitement of the awards season is in full swing and the David Lean is at the forefront of showing the possible winners. La La Land and Manchester by the Sea are selling well, but it’s worth checking the extra screenings on our website for more ticket information.
Sarah’s Key and The Innocents, our contributions to Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January were well attended by appreciative audiences; there was praise for both films, and particularly for the fine acting and direction of The Innocents - a powerful portrayal of hope over adversity that stays in the memory...

Remaining tickets for our March programme (and April's Moonlight) go on sale on Thursday at 9am. Philip Howard's preview and full details can be found on this website page.

Meanwhile, we look forward to seeing you at the cinema – and thank you, as always, for your continuing support.
