Bringing in Baby
Wednesday 25th January 2023

Sociable screenings for parents, grandparents and carers of babies under 12 months. Breastfeeding friendly, access to warm water and changing facilities, and no need to worry if baby makes a noise! All tickets £4. Café and Box Office open from 10.30am. You will be given the option to pre-order a hot drink during the online booking process.

Dir. Sam Mendes, UK, 2022, 115 mins. Cast. Olivia Colman, Colin Firth, Toby Jones, Micheal Ward.

Hilary (Olivia Colman) manages a seafront picture palace in Margate. Once an opulent multiscreen cinema with a dance hall overlooking the sea, now only one screen remains open, albeit a grand one. In preparation for a regional premiere of Chariots of Fire, Hilary and her colleagues - played by a heavyweight ensemble that includes Toby Jones, Colin Firth, Tom Brooke and Micheal Ward - spruce up the venue. Outside, the town itself is crumbling, with a rising far-right presence and harassing skinheads.

Mendes delivers a stirring ode to the cinema as a space for collective experience, offering the pleasures and balms of watching films in darkness together.
