New Time: La Danse - Sunday 19th at 4.30pm

We've had to move La Danse to the slightly earlier time of 4.30 pm. This is to accommodate the Narnia film which needs to start for the kids' sake at 7.30pm. We'd be very grateful if you could mention the change of time to anyone you think may be interested.

Down Terrace - Sunday 12th December 5pm

Down Terrace is being mentioned in the same category as The Long Good Friday, Get Carter, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (although it's much lower budget than them) rather than the britgangster dross that has been prevalent in the last few years. It won Jury Prize at the Raindance Film Festival as well as the Raindance Award at the British Independent Film Awards and the Best Film Next Wave Award at the Austin Film Festival, and that's not bad going. And two views from across the pond:
'The British do kitchen-sink realism extremely well; they also have a nice way with black comedy. It's rare, however, to see the two as wickedly combined as they are in Down Terrace."
Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail. 
"Often gaspingly, ridiculously funny."

Skeletons - Sunday 5th December 5pm

Skeletons is the fourteenth film film this season but the first in the English language, which may be some kind of recordHigh praise in the brochure and as far as one can judge, a film that's highly likely to appeal to the refined sense of humour of the KFC membership. Venez nombreux as they say over there. And as we always say, it's not your money we want, it's large audiences enjoying films we've chosen as carefully as possible for your appreciation.
