Packed with fantastic films and fascinating documentaries, Oundle Cinema offers a thought provoking programme of documentary screenings and recently released critically acclaimed films, with October half-term and Christmas specials for all the family plus a mini-season to commemorate the end of the First World War.
The Season at The Stahl Theatre includes Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri from Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh; the remarkable recreation of the 1973 challenge match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, Battle of the Sexes where much more than tennis is at stake and star names such as Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks appear in Spielberg’s The Post.
The stimulating dOCs+ screenings at Fletton House offer an insight into many of the world’s political conflicts, inspirations and history, followed by an opportunity for a short informal discussion. Merijas Journey searches to recognise the remarkable truth in dedicating a life to a Latvian museum collection and a country that the Second World War tore apart. Between the Folds invites us into the world of origami where folding a simple blank, uncut paper square emerges as a resounding metaphor for the creative potential for transformation in all of us.
Nick Park and his team produce yet another hugely successful feature animation with Early Man; the early evening start makes this an ideal family treat for the October half term. With another family orientated special to help us all sit back and relax after a busy Christmas period, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score on 27th December.
Oundle Cinema is also proud to offer a short series of films to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. Looking at war through the lens of the 21st Century, the eternal resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds is brought into sharp focus. Darkest Hour, Journey’s End and based on the best-selling novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will be showing over the short period in and around Armistice Day.
Tickets are £6.50/£3 for Oundle Cinema films and £8 for each dOCs+ screening. Tickets and trailers are available on www.oundlecinema.org.uk, on 01832 274734 or from the Oundle Box Office, 4 New Street, Oundle.
