P C Paul Baker & the Bastion Iron Distance Triathlon

Hever Castle on 13th July.

Set within close proximity to London and triathlon’s heartland of the south-east, each leg of The Bastion has been carefully designed to offer the ultimate challenge for both newcomers to long-distance triathlon and experienced long-course hands.

The Bastion, the final stronghold of a medieval castle, will feature a 3.8km lake swim, a true toughie of a 180km bike course with 3,000m of climbing and a 42.2km run course that takes place largely off-road.

Paul says I'm raising money for ARNI. It is a registered charity with 100% volunteers formed in 2001 in response to the demand throughout the UK from stroke survivors who state that they are 'stuck in limbo' after therapy ends. This charity is local to us Lingfield, but it operates nationally.

American Hustle

Sunday 14th September at 7pm showing at 7.30pm

Principal photography on this much acclaimed film began on 8 March 2013, in Boston and Worcester,

Massachusetts, and New York City. The film had its nationwide release in the USA on December 20, 2013, and has since grossed more than $251 million worldwide. The American Hustle was nominated for 10 British Academy Film Awards, with Jennifer Lawrence winning for Actress in a Supporting Role, and David O. Russell and Eric Warren Singer winning for Best Original Screenplay. American Hustle was released on DVD and Blu-ray on 18 March 2014.

American Hustle does not attempt to directly document the events of Abscam. The names are changed, and the film

begins with the on-screen message, Some of this actually happened. Major departures from reality include:
In 1978, con artists Irving Rosenfeld and Sydney Prosser have started a relationship and are working together. Sydney has improved Rosenfeld's scams, posing as English aristocrat "Lady Edith Greensly". While Irving loves

Sydney, he is hesitant to leave his wife Rosalyn out of fear of losing contact with their son, Danny. Rosalyn has also threatened that she could report Irving to the police if he leaves her...NB. Abscam was the FBI codename for the operation. It was said that "Abscam" was a contraction of "Arab scam", after complaints officials said it was a contraction of "Abdul scam" after the name of its fictitious front company.


Captain Phillips

Sunday 12th October at 7pm showing at 7.30pm

Captain Phillips is a 2013 American thriller film directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi. The film is inspired by the true story of the 2009 Maersk Alabama hijacking, an incident during which merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips was taken hostage by pirates in the Indian Ocean led by Abduwali Muse.
The screenplay by Billy Ray is based on the 2010 book A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca served as producers on the project. It premiered at the 2013 New York Film Festival,[3] and was theatrically released on October 11, 2013.[4] The film emerged as a box office success with earnings of over $217 million against a budget of $55 million. In 2014, Captain Phillips received six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Abdi, but did not win in any of the categories.

Also showing on 9th November 2014 The Book Thief and on the 14th December Saving Mr Banks

Farnham Malting presents

'It's a Wonderful Life'

Friday 2nd January 2015

Welcome to Bedford Falls. Welcome to small town America. Welcome to Farnham Maltings production. Frank Capra’s classic 1946 movie needs no introduction. George Bailey, a desperate middle aged clerk discovers the difference he has made to his family, his friends and his home town. (with a little help from Clarence, the apprentice angel)
Following the success of Miracle on 34th Street (November 2009) Farnham Maltings will bring the struggles and joys of a 1940s small town America to Lingfield. Using their own, inimitable style the company has created two hours of theatre that promise to warm the coldest of places through the long winter nights.
