Song for Marion

Sunday 11th May 7pm for showing at 7.30pm

In a small house in a featureless suburb of London, Arthur (Terence Stamp), lives with his wife, Marion (Vanessa Redgrave). Long retired, Arthur is a moody, introverted grouch, while Marion has a sunny and positive disposition despite the fact she's suffering from terminal cancer. Her greatest joy is to sing in a choir consisting of other old-age pensioners organised on a volunteer basis by young music teacher Elizabeth, (Gemma Arterton)  Arthur disapproves.There's some truth about.  Most women put up with grumpy old men for decades and that's all she's done and he adores her and he's worried about her and so he's grump





 Sunday 8th June 7pm for showing at 7.30pm

If you loved Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa you'll... actually it has nothing to do with Alan Partridge despite the fact that it is co-written by and starring Steve Coogan. Such is the curse of creating such a perfect character...Philomena is actually a drama. Played by Dame Judi Dench, a woman searches for the son who was taken away from her many years ago when she was sent to a convent. Based on the book The Lost Child of Philomena  Lee: A mother, her son and a 50 year   search; it is a moving account of a woman who strives to be reunited with her child.


All tickets: £5

Refreshments available at 7pm until 7.30pm
