Peppard Revels

Film Club: 2016/2017 Season

We’ll be back in the autumn with two smashing films. We’re kicking off on the 21st October with ‘The Man for All Seasons’, the wonderful 1966 film about Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England and his refusal to support Henry VIII in his determination to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Ann Boleyn. This film won no less than 6 Oscars and stars Paul Schofield, Leo McKern, Orson Welles and Nigel Davenport to name just a few.

And then on 25th November we’re screening
‘Much Ado About Nothing’, the 1993 version with Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Richard Briers and Kate Beckinsale. It’s got some wonderful music and splendid cameo parts for Ben Elton and Michael Keaton and it’s great fun.

At the October screening we’ll be voting for the films you want to see in 2017. The price is unchanged at £10 and of course you’ll get supper in a bowl prepared by our wonderful team of cooks and a glass of Laithwaites wine. A Bargain!
