Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Sunday 8th March 3pm showing at 3.30pm

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a 1969 American Western film directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman (who won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the film). Based loosely on fact, the film tells the story of Wild West outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker, known to history as Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the "Sundance Kid" (Robert Redford) as they migrate to Bolivia while on the run from the law in search of a more successful criminal career. In 2003, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically si




The Invisible Women

Sunday 12th April 7pm showing at 7.30pm (note the time!

Nelly, a happily married mother and school teacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories,

provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her

relationship with Charles Dickens with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity.

Dickens - famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success - falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens - a brilliant amateur actor - a man more emotionally coherent in his work, or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens' passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of 'invisibility'.

Directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes (CORIOLANUS), and rising talent Felicity Jones.

Based on the book by Claire Tomalin.

Brooks Williams - acoustic guitarists, singer-songwriter

Saturday 7th March at 7.30 pm

Ranked one of the top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, singer-songwriter Brooks Williams writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easy-going vocal style and monstrous guitar chops. Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. This Statesboro Georgia native is, according to americanaUK, impossible not to like'. The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” For 25 years he has been wowing audiences worldwide, every night delivering the deepest and most intense interpretations of everything from early blues to inventive covers to his own original compositions. Dirty Linen called him one of “America’s musical treasures.” An absolute master with a six string Williams is personable and funny and easy to relate to. On top of it all he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into.
