An excellent political thriller based on a true story – don’t miss it on the big screen with a great audience!

Tickets only £7 (non-members) –

Come and enjoy FILMBOX – films are better with an audience!


Based on an improbable true story…

‘ARGO’ is an enjoyably tense and exciting thriller, with great performances from Ben Affleck, John Goodman and Alan Arkin, among others – remember that it scooped the Oscar for Best Picture this year, but perhaps you didn’t get to see it at the time? Come and see it as intended, on a big screen with a great audience! (with added extras, such as ice cream, good bar snacks and drinks)

FILMBOX members have voted for…

Argo – which will be our 22 May screening! Look out for how it does in tonight’s Oscars! Silver Linings Playbook narrowly lost out in our members’ vote but may well pick up some awards tonight.

Ben Affleck in 'Argo'Personally, I think Argo deserves Best Hairdo award for Ben Affleck’s 80’s layered and bearded look! Come to think of it, Bradley Cooper is also sporting a beard in Silver Linings Playbook

STOP PRESS – two tickets now available for our screening of Gael Garcia Bernal’s ‘NO’ this Weds – book at £5 non-members, members FREE. Indeed, ‘NO‘ features more ’80s politics and another bearded look!

Gael Garcia Bernal in 'NO'

We’re delighted to say that most of our films so far have been nominated for Oscars and BAFTAs – do book The Imposter in March, Beasts of the Southern Wild in April, Les Misérables and Argo in May and our first double bill, Hitchcock and Psycho (1960 original) in June!

If you’re having your own Oscars’ party tonight – be fabulous! Oh, and here’s another bearded Oscar-nominated superstar… I wonder if you can do a PhD in tonsure in cinema?
