We are now three films into our season of events on the The Big Screen at Kilmersdon Village Hall.

The three films we have shown so far have been wide ranging in style and content and we have been delighted by the way the ever-growing audiences have greeted each one with real enthusiasm.

Its so encouraging to see people having a real thirst for good quality entertainment on their doorstep and wanting to come together with friends or make new ones – such a change from the relative isolation over the past two or three years. We would thank everyone who has come along from the local area to support us.

We have five more great films to come to take the season through its close in April with three screenings in the next two months. If you haven’t been along before or have not been for a while we would love to see you – there’s something for every taste in our programme and hopefully we can introduce you to something new.

Why not try our first film for 2024 - Sometimes, Always, Never (Cert 12) at 8pm on Friday, 12th January 2024. This is an elegant but ‘quirky’ British comedy starring Bill Nighy who is ‘perfectly’ cast as Alan, a retired tailor, who is searching for his long lost and ‘favourite’ son who disappeared after a contentious game of Scrabble.

The film was released just before the first lockdown and disappeared without a trace but we have rescued it for you to enjoy. There’s a great script from Frank Cottrell-Boyce which keeps you guessing, excellent performances from the ensemble cast and a superb turn from first time director, Carl Hunter.

For something completely different at 8pm on Friday, 26th January 2024 we head to Moscow to join two travellers on a train journey to the arctic port of Murmansk for Compartment No 6 (Cert 15, Subtitled). Laura is a young Finnish archaeology student and Ljoha is a drunken Russian miner – they couldn’t be two more different people but they are forced to share a cramped railway carriage for the 1200 mile journey. Join us to find how the journey went!

Coming up at 8pm on Friday, 9th February 2024 we are screening The Quiet Girl (Cert 12, Subtitled), a beautifully realised adaptation of Claire Keegan’s short novel ‘Foster’. Cait is a shy 9-year-old girl sidelined by her dysfunctional family who finds a new way of living when she is sent to stay with distant relatives for the summer. The film is a simple reminder that the smallest stories can leave a large emotional impact.

As always, the doors and bar open at 7.15pm and the film starts at 8pm prompt. Everyone is very welcome either as a guest for £6 payable on the door, or you can join as a member for the remaining five films. Just to let you know we can accept card payments for all transactions.
