Our Summer 2018 programme follows below
11 May, Pelham Hall, Penallt: PADDINGTON 2 [PG] 104 mins - Adventure/comedy
Now happily settled with the Brown family (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins), our accidentally heroic bear is caught up in a book theft. Perfectly judged to appeal to all ages, with a brilliant turn from Hugh Grant as a dastardly cad. Charming, witty, exciting and, by all accounts, even better than the first Paddington film.
25 May, The Narth Village Hall: ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD  132 mins - Biography/crime/drama
The story of the kidnapping of young John Paul Getty III in 1973 and his mother’s desperate attempts to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. Directed by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise) this tense drama features Michelle Williams as Gail Getty, expertly bringing this astounding true story to life.
15 June, Pelham Hall, Penallt: THE POST [12A] 116 mins - Historical drama
Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in a film directed by Stephen Spielberg that tells the story of the pre-Watergate Nixon government’s attempts to stop publication of damning facts about the Vietnam war, and how the Washington Post risked the future of the paper to reveal the truth about corruption in high places. Parallels with today’s White House are intentional.
22 June, The Narth Village Hall: EDIE [12A] 102 mins - Drama
Defying stereotypes and determined to show there’s still life in old age, widowed Edie decides to climb a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. The amazing Sheila Hancock carries the film (and her rucksack) through the glorious countryside, while the story explores her relationship with her family and the barriers faced by the over-70s from the expectations of others.
20 July, Pelham Hall, Penallt: DARKEST HOUR [PG] 125 mins - Biography/drama
An Oscar winning performance from Gary Oldman playing Churchill at that most critical point in Britain’s history, with Kristin Scott Thomas as his wife Clemmie. The film focusses on the backroom politics during May 1940 when Churchill was forced to decide the future course of the war: negotiate with Hitler or fight.
27 July, The Narth Village Hall: LADY BIRD  94 mins - Comedy drama
Irish actress Saoirse Ronan plays a rebellious Californian schoolgirl from the wrong side of the tracks in this acclaimed film from writer/director Greta Gerwig. The story follows Lady Bird’s final year in high school, including a first romance, a school play, and the trials of applying for college. A funny, quirky coming-of-age story that won a Golden Globe for Best Comedy.
