A great Christmas classic, with a timely message about the most important things in life, James Stewart is superb as George Bailey, an everyday hero in a small American town – almost like a Norman Rockwell painting brought to  life.

We will have a licensed bar which will be open from 6.45pm and we hope that you can join us for a magical evening to get you in the mood for Christmas. Accompanied ‘film buffs’ under 16 years old are welcome for this event!

Book now for FILMBOX’s Nov and Dec films!

Book now for FILMBOX’s November and December films here: Ticket order form

(We’re STILL waiting for the School’s new online box office to be set up, so let’s get cracking and start booking now)

Tickets: Only £5 each.  In Studio 609 – maximum capacity 84 seats – so no tickets will be available on the door, advance booking only (age 16+ only due to limited space).

Wednesday 21 November‘Moonrise Kingdom’ (Wes Anderson, 2012, USA, Cert 12A, 94mins) – “Wes Anderson’s elegant new film is eccentric but heartfelt – a soufflé of strangeness that rises superbly – 4/5 stars”, writes Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian).

This is a gem of a film and it almost got lost in the hullabaloo that accompanied Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus‘ this summer. It’s typically quirky and charming with Wes Anderson’s unmistakeable lightness of touch – a story of two innocent runaways and the dysfunctional but well-meaning adults they leave behind.

If you liked US ‘indie’ hits, such as Little Miss Sunshine (Dayton & Harris, 2006), Napoleon Dynamite (Hess, 2004) and indeed Anderson’s own superb The Royal Tennenbaums (2001), you’ll surely sit through this with a gentle smile playing across your lips. A superb ensemble cast, including class acts, such as Coen Bros regular, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton and Bill Murray, with an uncharacteristically low-key cameo performance from Bruce Willis, plus two very promising teen leads.


Special feature: Pre-show complimentary nibbles and raffle prize courtesy of Harrington’s Kitchen bread-making courses

Wednesday 12 December‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ (Frank Capra, 1946, USA, Cert U, 130mins)

In the Performance Hall – capacity over 500 seats – all ages admitted.

IAWL makes the grandest possible case for the importance and uniqueness of individual agency… Funny, compelling and moving. 5/5 stars” Ben Walters, Time Out

Surely in most people’s top 5 Christmas films of all time, to some this choice might be a cliche of Christmas film programming, but we had to do it! If you’ve only ever seen this on DVD or TV, you HAVE to see it on our big screen WITH an audience this Christmas. If you’ve never seen it, I envy you…

James Stewart stars as George Bailey who learns just how important his life really is – a life-affirming lesson for us all, this and every Christmas.

We are pleased to announce that it will be screened in the Performance Hall due to probable demand and so we’d like to extend our invitation to cineastes young and old – this film is a ‘Cert U’ therefore we welcome all ages for this magical film.


Special feature: Pre-show complimentary nibbles and raffle prize courtesy of Holwood Farm Shop – a new deli with a coffee shop near Downe.

Time of all screenings: Bar opens 6.45pm, doors open 7.20pm and film intro starts at 7.30pm. Seating is unreserved. All screenings will end by 10pm and start with a short film, as available, and a brief introduction to the main feature. Please bring change for the bar and raffle.

Age and Film Certification: Filmbox members must be aged 16 or over, but we are making an exception for our December 12th screening of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ as we will have greater capacity in the Performance Hall than in our usual base of Studio 609.
