Grampound Film Club started under the umbrella organisation, C-fylm, in May 2016. It runs on the first Wednesday of each month. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the film starts at 7.30 p.m. There is an interval for refreshments.
Moviegoers must become members of C-fylm which costs £6 per annum (calendar year basis). 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 and it covers admission on that first visit. Thereafter, entry to each film costs £3 per person.
If you would like to be added to our mailing lists for forthcoming shows and films, please email to chair of village hall with your details.
Forthcoming Shows and Films
Roustabout Theatre: Luna, a play about the moon CANCELLED
Family show Luna blasts off at 2 p.m. It’s a national touring family treat of a show commemorating the 50th anniversary of the moon landings.
We are entranced by the Moon. It controls our tides, marks our time, and has inspired countless stories, myths, songs, and poems. And in July 1969, we walked on its surface. Featuring astronauts, lovelorn science teachers, werewolves, and a special guest appearance by the Moon itself, supported by a talented cast of household objects, Luna is a rich feast of storytelling, music, history and science, celebrating this fascination with our oldest friend.
There will also be a Q & A at the end of the performance.
Ticket prices £9 adult £7 child £25 family.
Grampound Film Club: Baby Driver CANCELLED
Baby Driver is a 2017 action film written and directed by Edgar Wright. It stars Ansel Elgort as a young, musically driven getaway driver seeking freedom from a life of crime with his lover Debora (Lily James). Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jamie Foxx and Jon Bernthal (among others) appear in supporting roles.
Baby is a getaway driver in Atlanta. As a child, he survived a car crash that killed his parents and left him with tinnitus, and finds catharsis in music. Baby ferries crews of robbers assembled by Doc, a criminal mastermind, to pay off a debt as recompense for a stolen car. Between jobs, he remixes snippets of recorded conversations and cares for his deaf foster father Joseph.
Saturday 18 April 7.30 p.m.
The one man legend that is Dave Mynne has brought us many treats in the past - Greek stuff, Dracula, Great Expectations etc. Now he returns to give Chaucer the treatment! Very funny, total quality.
This is Chaucer … but not as you’ve ever seen it. Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, ‘The Canterbury Tales’ paints an ironic and critcial portrait of English society in the Middle Ages. All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with David Mynne’s usual irreverence, wit and silliness! In this one man performance, there will be medieval naughtiness and nonsense! There may be tights and a codpiece! There will, no doubt, be some fourteenth century swearing! Let’s party like it’s 1387!
Jane Pugh: Life Girl CANCELLED
This show hopes to answer every question you’ve ever had about living on your own. Full of compassion, tragedy and comedy it explores the difference between feeling lonely and being alone.
Grampound Film Club: Bait CANCELLED
Cornish film-maker Mark Jenkin’s breakthrough feature is a thrillingly adventurous labour of love – a richly textured, rough-hewn gem in which form and content are perfectly combined. A refreshingly authentic tale of tensions between locals and tourists in a once-thriving fishing village, it’s an evocative portrait of familiar culture clashes in an area where traditional trades and lifestyles are under threat. Shot with clockwork cameras on grainy 16mm stock, which Jenkin hand-processed in his studio in Newlyn, Bait is both an impassioned paean to Cornwall’s proud past, and a bracingly tragicomic portrait of its troubled present and possible future. It’s a genuine modern masterpiece, which establishes Jenkin as one of the most arresting and intriguing British film-makers of his generation.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure "Dumbo" expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Scott Laverne: The truth about men
Absolutely stunning musical narrative. One man’s personal journey told through song, keyboard and guitar. Totally well received wherever it has been performed, a privilege to host this. It is definitely a must see show. Warning does contain swearing.
