bringing cinema to the heart of your village
Welcome back to TMH film nights
SUMMER SEASON 2022
We will continue to ensure you can watch our films in a safe and secure way, showing respect to all as we all continue to learn to live with the Covid.
FRIDAY 20th MAY
Belfast is a 2021 British coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Kenneth Branagh. The film stars Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciarán Hinds, Colin Morgan, and newcomer Jude Hill. The film, which Branagh has described as his "most personal film", follows a young boy's childhood in Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the beginning of The Troubles in 1969.
FRIDAY 17th JUNE
WEST SIDE STORY
West Side Story is a 2021 American musical romantic drama film directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Tony Kushner. It is the second feature-length adaptation of the 1957 stage musical of the same name. It stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler in her film debut with Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, and Rita Moreno in supporting roles. Moreno, who starred in the 1961 film adaptation, also served as an executive producer alongside Kushner. The film features music composed by Leonard Bernstein with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
FRIDAY 15th JULY
In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery's history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly -- he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge
FRIDAY 12th AUGUST
The story takes place on Mother's Day in 1924. Fir Mr. and Mrs. Evan give their housekeeper, Jane Fairchild (Odessa Young), the day off, as the couple are set to go to their neighbour's house to celebrate his engagement. The truth is Jane and the neighbour, Paul, have been having an affair for many years.
A heart-wrenching drama directed by Eva Husson and based on the novel by Graham Swift, shows that people are more than what they do
We look forward to seeing you at our film nights
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.
