6 May at 19:00–22:00
US / 2017 / Dir Jordan Peele
102 mins. / BBFC Cert. 15
Cast includes: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, Lakeith Stanfield, Catherine Keener, Erika Alexander
A brilliantly inventive film that gets under the skin of contemporary race politics and blends aspects of comedy and horror into a richly textured film of thrilling twists, scares and creepy undertones.
“Get Out is an extremely confident debut feature for Peele, one steeped in the language of horror cinema rather than merely copying it.” – The Atlantic
“What begins as an awkward tale of meeting the parents becomes something much, much worse, but it’s all part of a fully realized whole.”- The Guardian
“Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless.” – Variety
3 June at 19:00–22:00
US/ 2017 / Dir Kathryn Bigelow
142 mins. / BBFC Cert. 15
Cast includes: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, Anthony Mackie, John Krasinski, Samira Wiley, Hannah Murray, Ben O’Toole, Nathan Davis Jr., Peyton Alex Smith, Malcolm David-Kelly, Laz Alonso, Chris Chalk, Jeremy Strong
Fact-based drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots in which a group of rogue police officers respond to a complaint with retribution rather than justice on their minds. John Boyega plays a security guard drawn in to a grotesque showdown with racist cops at the Algiers Motel. A gruelling but entirely essential examination of a brutal chapter in US race struggle.
“A gruelling, nightmarish, ferociously vivid riot epic that recreates one of the darkest chapters in American history. Unflinching, unmissable and terrifyingly pertinent.” – Empire
“Dramatically relentless and emotionally shattering, it brings news from a turbulent past that casts a baleful light on America’s troubled present.” – Wall Street Journal
Marsden Royal British Legion.

Beggars of Life
(Yorkshire Silent Film Festival)
Dir. William Wellman, USA, 1928, 100 min
After killing her violent stepfather, Nancy (Louise Brooks) goes on the run with an amiable hobo (Richard Arlen) to escape the cops. Dressing as a boy, she hops freight trains, sleeps under the stars and eventually steals a car to escape to Canada.
With dramatic American landscapes, a lyrical love story, and a daring, desperate final action scene atop a speeding train, Beggars of Life is magical entertainment.
All the excitement and romance of this fabulous film will be captured by a live score from Elizabeth-Jane Baldry (harp)
