Manchester by the Sea (cert 15) with Casey Affleck (Best Actor Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner) and Michelle Williams.

“(This film) sings its lonely song with tremendous heart and soul. No wonder it left me wanting more.” Mark Kermode – The Observer

“Masterfully told and beautifully acted, Manchester By The Sea is a shattering yet graceful elegy of loss and grief.” Phil De Semlyen – Empire

“Kenneth Lonergan’s beautifully textured, richly enveloping drama about how a death in the family forces a small-town New Englander to confront a past tragedy anew.” Justin Chang – Variety

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxQmuJnrjxg

The Eagle Huntress (cert U) drama documentary – in Khazak, with English voiceover by Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and with English subtitles.

‘You are awesome.’ These are words that every 13-year-old girl needs to hear from her dad. They’re much more helpful than ‘You are pretty’ or ‘You are nice.’ The dad doing the verbal high-fiving in this inspiring doc is Agalai, a Mongolian eagle hunter. Eagle hunting is a tribal tradition that goes back 2,000 years among Kazakh nomadic men, who ride out on horseback with an eagle across the frozen Central Asian steppes to catch foxes and rabbits. It’s a father-and-son thing. But enlightened Agalai understands that his pigtailed teenage daughter Aisholpan has the grit and talent to be a hunter.” Cath ClarkeTime Out

Bring your daughters and grand-daughters to this uplifting film!

See 5 Oscar-winner ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST + Jack Nicholson 2/7/15 @Beckenham £8/5

Winner of FIVE Oscars in 1976 – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest stars Jack Nicholson in an unforgettable role supported by a superb ensemble cast, including Danny De Vito, Christopher Lloyd, Louise Fletcher and Brad Dourif. Immensely moving and joyously funny by turns, ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ is a most memorable experience and rarely seen on the big screen – don’t miss it!

5 stars

Book tickets below – £8/£5 – no booking fees. FREE PARKING – NO BOOKING FEES! BOOK NOWhttps://www.ticketsource.co.uk/filmbox

“The first movie since Frank Capra’s ‘It Happened One Night’ to sweep the big five Oscars (director, screenplay, actor, actress, film), ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ remains an unlikely and inspiring triumph. The dream-like novel was considered unfilmable, the co-producer was a TV actor with a famous dad, the Czech director was still largely unknown outside Europe and every ‘name’ actress in Hollywood had turned down the role of callous Nurse Ratched. And yet, as soon as Jack Nicholson signed on the dotted line, everything fell into place.

He may be a huge, red-headed Irishman in Ken Kesey’s book, but the live-wire misfit Randle P. McMurphy, who turns the mental institution upside down, was the role Jack Nicholson was born to play. With or without shock therapy, Nicholson is simply electrifying. But this is far from a one-man show, and indeed, even the non-speaking parts make an indelible visual impression. As direct and simple as it is funny and moving, this is a masterpiece of dramatic naturalism. Verdict: Oscars went to Nicholson, Louise Fletcher as castrating Nurse Ratched, producer Michael Douglas and Milos Forman’s unblinking direction. Cuckoo spent 14 years in development limbo but remains the most radical film to emerge from mainstream Hollywood. Too many classic set pieces to mention but keep your ears cocked for that immortal line “Mmmm, Juicy Fruit.” Certified brilliance.” Colin Kennedy, Empire Magazine

THURSDAY 2 JULY 2015 – ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST (Milos Forman, USA, 1975, 133 mins, Cert 18).  Bar open 6.40pm, film programme from 7.30pm.

Fly in to see #Birdman Oscar & BAFTA-winner – here this Thur 18/6 @Beckenham

Winner of SIX BAFTAs and FOUR OscarsBirdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) stars Michael Keaton in a barn-storming role with superb ensemble support from Emma Stone, Ed Norton, Lindsay Duncan, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis. A black comedy, Birdman is about a washed-up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, who battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself in the days leading up to the opening of his Broadway play. Book tickets below – £8/£5 – no booking fees.

“You’ll believe a man can fly. Or you’ll believe that believing you can fly and flying are sort of the same thing. Either way, Alejandro González Iñárritu achieves takeoff in a big way with his crazy, freaky-deaky, hellzapoppin’ showbiz comedy Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). I certainly levitated with enjoyment… At certain moments, watching it felt like inhaling laughing gas mixed with helium…Birdman is a delicious and delirious pleasure.” 5 stars – Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian 25/12/14)
