See Matthew McConaughey in indie hit ‘Mud’ on Weds 9 October – poss Oscar contender.

‘Mud’ (Jeff Nicholls, USA, 2012, Cert 15, 130mins) has great performances from Matthew McConaughey and teenage actor Tye Sheridan (Terrence Malick’sTree of Life’ with Brad Pitt), with great support from Sam Shepard and Reese Witherspoon and is a great tale of Mississippi life seen through the eyes of two teenage boys.  It has literary echoes of ‘Stand by Me’, ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Huckleberry Finn’ – and has some superb cinematography and an atmospheric build up to its climax.

Jeff Nicholls’ third feature as writer and director, ‘Mud’s’ screenplay is a strong contender for Best Original Screenplay in the February 2014 Oscars. McConaughey (who seems to have shrugged off  his rom-com ‘himbo’ image very successfully after the grisly ‘Killer Joe’) is likely to be an Oscar contender for Best Actor for his performance in the forthcoming ‘Dallas Buyers’ Club’ and stars in another possible Oscar contender, Martin Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Even though we are based in a school, this is a proper studio cinema with tiered upholstered seating – you won’t be on a hard chair in a gym! We’re working hard to become Bromley’s best new arts centre – a vistor to our festival last week described having found ‘a real gem’ so we hope you’ll come and try us out too. Remember – FILMBOX is self-funded and non-profit making, run and staffed by volunteers.

Our café/bar is open from 6.40pm – come and be social with other film-goers, and the programme starts at 7.30pm and will be finished by 10pm.

Yummy local Simply ice cream and local Kentish fruit juices too!


Lots of FAB films to see from now until Christmas – starting with the indie hit ‘Mud’ with Matthew McConaughey on Wed 9 Oct!

We had a superb time across our 3-day 1st Birthday film festival – over 600 local people enjoyed live music, professional jazz and 6 films – including 335 people to our 4 free film event on Saturday 28 Sept. – our outdoor film even cheated Saturday night’s rain by a good 10 mins! It was lovely to see you all and so many new faces!
Our next film will be on Wed 9 October – reviewed with 4 and 5 stars in the international press ‘Mud’ (Jeff Nicholls, USA, 2012, Cert 15, 130 mins – we won’t be showing a short film beforehand so we can finish before 10pm) with Matthew McConaughey (in a very non-rom com performance which is charismatic and mysterious), Reese Witherspoon and a ‘stand out’ performance from teenage actor, Tye Sheridan (Terence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’).
Even though we are based in a school, our cinema spaces are separate from it and people tell us they’re the best in the local area and we have a rather nice cafe/bar too – always open before the film. Do come and try us – FREE parking!
A first time visitor to our festival at the weekend gave us this lovely feedback: ‘We also really appreciated the warm welcome and approach from everyone involved. I feel like we have found a real gem and will definitely be back to visit you again.’
‘MUD’ – Terrific cinematography, superb performances all round, including cameo from veteran writer/director/actor Sam Shepard, ‘Mud’ is a Huck Finn-like tale of Mississippi adventures, with a bit of ‘Great Expectations’ thrown in for good measure – the adult world seen through the eyes of a young boy.
Age 16+ only. Studio 609 – limited availability. Time: 6.40pm for 7.30pm. Members’ price: £4 each for up to 2 tickets – usual price £7 each.
