Moviegoers must become members of C-fylm which costs £5 per annum. You can join the first time that you come to the Film Club. This money goes to C-fylm to help pay for the licence from the Motion Picture Licensing Company. Thereafter, entry to each film costs £3 per person.

Forthcoming Shows and Films
Publick Transport: We are Bronte
Superb physical comedy, Edinburgh festival hit on a national tour.
Review: "The title sounds literary, but don’t be fooled: you won’t need to know much about the Brontë sisters to enjoy this wacky homage to their work. Performers Sarah Corbett and Angus Barr re-enact a self-described “amalgam” of Brontë tales, their increasingly ludicrous artistic endeavours deliver consistent laughs and conjure up some genuinely striking imagery too. It’s done with skill and elegance though, and more than once the audience laughed at a piece of physical theatre that I secretly found rather beautiful and inspired.”
£9 adult £7 child/concession £25 family. Performance plus Q & A with the company.
Grampound Film Club: A Monster Calls
A visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona ("The Impossible"). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother's (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor's father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.
Wednesday 7 March 7.30 p.m. (Doors open 7 p.m.)
Grampound Film Club: Film to be confirmed
Cornwall Youth Theatre: The Riot
Since the hall reopened we have had an annual relationship with CYT and their Director David Hunter. It is so important to support the origin of talent that later comes to fruition in so many of the magnificent companies we have in Cornwall. This time round they are performing the Nick Darke play The Riot. The twentieth century is just around the corner and the natives of Newlyn are restless.

Gwary Teg: The Incredible Balti Celtic Carpet Ride
Roll up! Roll up! Step right this way... The date is 11th September
1967 and The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour pulls into the Cornish seaside town of Newquay. Long-term fan of the band and new Balti House owner Ali Chaudary finds himself intricately caught up with their visit. Events not only lead to him meeting John. Paul. George and Ringo, but also his friends, family and he take their very own surreal tour across the world on the incredible Balti-Celtic carpet ride. The ride is life-changing for everyone, showing how the past has affected both the territories of Cornwall and India. In this wildly imaginative new play, Alan M. Kent -prize-winning playwright of The Tin Violin, Surfing Tommies and National Minority-takes audiences on an extraordinary journey through time and space. Here post-colonialism meets pop -all helped along with a mischievous dusting of (L)ucy in
the (S)ky with (D)iamonds and a generous helping of hot and spicy Balti-style Vindaloo... From the company behind Minority Report which was well received in the hall a couple of years ago.
