Second Marigold didn't disappoint

It wasn't a full house for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, but August has historically been a month when our audience drops a bit. In fact we didn't screen a film in August last year for this reason, but this year we thought that The Marigold may bring people along.

In fact the audience was just under two-thirds of our seating capacity, which in the circumstances was more than acceptable. We hope, however, to get more people in for Thomas Hardy's
Far from the Madding Crowd, our film for September. This is a not to be missed period love story set in rural England.

In October Helen Mirren plays Maria Altmann, the woman who took on the Austrian Government in an attempt to recover a family painting by Gustav Klimt. The painting, known as
The Woman in Gold, was taken by the Nazis during the war. This is a true and quite remarkable story.

And for November we've selected
Testament Of Youth, based on the celebrated First World War memoir by Vera Brittain. A woman's view of the Great War.
