Picture Palace




A “not-for-profit” group set up with the aim of providing the village with a season of films to be shown in the Village Hall from the last Sunday in September then for each and every last Sunday of each month until May.

Each film screening costs in the region of £150.00, that is for the licence fee (approx £100), hall hire (approx £40) and advertising in the Chesil magazine (£10). At £2.00 per ticket we require a minimum attendance of 75, hence the involvement of our fund-raising cafe to help make good any possible shortfall.

Refreshments will be available on the evening, as well as ice creams and a cash bar.  We also hope to provide a supper in the hall, prior to the showing, which will be cooked and supplied by The Kings Arms team. If this is something you would want please let us know when making the booking. 
However, please note our cancellation conditions, we will require at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend and need to cancel your booking for supper, otherwise we will have no alternative but to charge you for any food you had previously ordered.


Our new season begins on 
Sunday the 30th September 2018 
with “Peter Rabbit” (PG).
Peter Rabbit and his three sisters -- Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail -- enjoy spending their days in Mr. McGregor's vegetable garden. When one of McGregor's relatives suddenly moves in, he's less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner hatches scheme after scheme to get rid of Peter — a resourceful rabbit who proves to be a worthy and wily opponent.
The Film Starts at 17.00
A cash bar is available along with a Tuck Shop, Refreshments and Ice Creams.
Please note supper is not available for this performance.

“Darkest Hour” (PG) 
Sunday 28th October 2018.
A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
The Film Starts at 19.30
A cash bar is available along with Refreshments and Ice Creams.
Supper will be a Beef or Vegetable Stew & Dumplings @ £8.00 and served from 18.45

November brings us Remembrance Sunday, which is a very poignant event this year, it being the 100th anniversary of the ending of the First World War.
 In addition to our monthly showings and in conjunction with a grant given by West Dorset District Council, and organised by Rev Margaret of St Peter’s Church on behalf of all groups within Chesil Bank Parish, there will be a showing of 
“War Horse”(PG) 
at the Remembrance Day commemorations, to be held in the village hall on 
Sunday the 11th November 2018.
Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his beloved horse, Joey, live on a farm in the British countryside. At the outbreak of World War I, Albert and Joey are forcibly parted when Albert's father sells the horse to the British cavalry. Against the backdrop of the Great War, Joey begins an odyssey full of danger, joy and sorrow, and he transforms everyone he meets along the way. Meanwhile Albert, unable to forget his equine friend, searches the battlefields of France to find Joey and bring him home.
Further Details to follow shortly…..
