The nights are drawing in and the first Christmas puddings have already been sighted in the shops (truly!). Time to enjoy an evening at the movies in the comfort of your village hall. We have many treats for you this season, kicking off with Jim Broadbent as the eponymous hero of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi as inmates of “The Beth” in Allelujah, and Lily James pondering the pros and cons of arranged marriages in What’s Love Got to Do with It? If you yearn for a classic, we have Bill Forsyth’s delightful Local Hero, 40 years old this year, and The Day of the Jackal, Fred Zinnemann’s thriller from 1973. Plus Ken Loach, Wes Anderson, and later in the season both Barbie and Oppenheimer. Full details on the Film page.
