bringing cinema to the heart of your village
Welcome back to TMH film nights
Autumn Season 2021
We will be doing our utmost to ensure you can watch our films in a safe and secure way, showing respect to all as we all learn to live with the Covid pandemic.
FRIDAY 17th SEPTEMBER
Following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, NOMADLAND features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern's mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West.
Determined to fulfil her late mother's dream of opening a bakery in charming Notting Hill, 19-year-old Clarissa enlists the help of her mother's best friend Isabella and her eccentric estranged grandmother Mimi. Three generations of women will need to overcome grief, doubts and differences to honour the memory of their beloved Sarah while embarking on a journey to establish a London bakery filled with love, hope and colourful pastries from all over the world.
Recently nominated for two BAFTA® awards for Best British Film and Best Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer, LIMBO is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centres on Omar, a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather's Oud, which he has carried all the way from his homeland and the network of friends whose personal stories inspire the film.
FRIDAY 17th DECEMBER
The film tells the inspiring true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by small town bartender, Jan Vokes (Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette). With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream and compete with the racing elites. Their investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks and becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.

Cinema in your village hall
During 2018/2019 a small team worked to secure funding to improve the audio-visual facilities in the Memorial Hall. We were successful in
our bid and we now have the equipment installed in the hall which
enables us to develop our cinema project in Thorverton.
Under the umbrella of the Memorial Hall Committee we are able to show films of various genres, both older and recent releases.
We aim to present an entertaining and enjoyable range of films each season suitable for individual and family audiences.
We anticipate that films will be regularly shown during a ten month season, leaving the opportunity to run possible special film events
in the other two months as the project develops.
All films will be screened in the Memorial Hall where
ice creams, soft drinks, tea and coffee are available to purchase
and the a bar is open before and after the film showing.
Join us throughout the year for some excellent films and
help make the TMH cinema events a real success.
You will be welcome.
