Picture Palace

A season of films to be shown in the Village Hall on the last Sunday of each month from October until April.

We are a “not-for-profit” group. The cost of each film screening is about £150.00, so we require a minimum attendance of at least 50. The bar, kitchen and franchising the food helps to subsidise our events as well as our Village Hall cafe held in the summer. Any excess funds we create will make its way to charitable organisations within the village.

Refreshments are available including a cash bar and ice creams.  We often provide a supper in the hall (usually with a vegetarian option), prior to the showing, professionally cooked and supplied by ‘The Kings Arms’.

Please note our cancellation conditions, we require at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend and need to cancel your booking for supper, otherwise we will need to charge you for any food you have ordered.

We are delighted to inform you that, after successful negotiations with them, we have obtained their licence and are able to show a British Pathé Newsreel at each session. Those of a certain age may well remember watching these newsreels at their local cinema in their youth.

 The Prestige (PG)
Sunday 28th April

Thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. Rupert Angier (Jackman) and Alfred Borman (Bale) are London based magicians of the highest order, both blessed with spectacular powers of deception and both cursed with unrelenting envy of one another’s skills. When Alfred performs an awe-inspiring trick for which there seems no logical explanation, the friendly competition shared between the pair turns to deadly rivalry as the enraged Rupert determines to uncover his rival’s deepest secrets. In the world of illusion, however, nothing is ever as quite as it seems, and the rules of the physical world simply don’t apply. Now, as bitter competition quickly begins to consume the souls of both performers, the firestorm birthed by their anger threatens to consume all who are around them.
