USA 2018
Dir: Ol Parker
Cert: PG  114 mins
Genre: Comedy | Musical
Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep

What more do you want in the depths of winter than sun, sand and a romantic comedy on a Greek Island? Sequels often fail to live up to the original but the hypercritical ‘Sight and Sound’ called this ‘a slice of crisp sweet baklava’. A family film with a host of favourite actors and the songs of Abba the perfect film to relax to after a good meal.

This screening falls outwith the membership and tickets will be available at the box office on film nights. As well as the film the audience will be served a three-course meal before the screening, prepared and served by Dave and Karen McCormack. To view the trailer, click here.

Genre: Comedy | Drama
Matthew McConaughey, Jenna Elfman, Geoffrey Blake

An American TV production company decides to make a show screening the life of an average Joe or Jane. It is to go out live and unedited. By being in the right place at the wrong time Ed Pukurny (McConaughey) gets picked. To say this year’s indie-classic was prescient is an understatement. It is also very funny. To view the trailer, click here.
