Yetminster Film Night

Yetminster Film Nights work in partnership with Moviola. Yetminster Film Nights deal with the Box Office and refreshments while Moviola provide the choice of films, projectionist and equipment.

Moviola is a registered charity. It provides a rural cinema service operating in the West Country serving communities that have no or distant access to cinema theatres showing a range of films in village halls and other venues. It advertises itself as “The South and West’s Rural Multiplex”, and with 80 screening venues is one of the largest rural film schemes in Europe.

Yetminster Film Nights is a non-profit making organisation run by a small committee of volunteers. Films are shown in St. Andrew’s Hall/Yetminster Jubilee Hall on the fourth Tuesday of the winter months. Tickets are priced at £6.00 (which includes a choc ice) and are available at the Spar Shop in Yetminster from two weeks before each showing. Tickets are available at the door though it is a tremendous help if people buy them in advance so that adequate seats, wine and choc ices are available. Yes – there is wine on sale too! There is normally a “short” film and trailer followed by an intermission for choc ices and the re-filling of glasses, the main feature is then shown.

The film nights tend to be as much of a social gathering as film viewing. Films are usually quite recent releases and often shown before they are available on DVD.

Tuesday 26th January – “Suffragette” 12A

A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state.  These women were not just from the genteel educated classes, there were also working women willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes and their children.  Starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Anne-Marie Duff and a powerful cameo from Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst.

Tuesday 23rd February – “A Walk in the Woods” – 15

Comedy adventure based on Bill Bryson’s best-seller starring Robert Redford, Emma Thompson and Nick Nolte.  Instead of retiring to his wife and happy family, Bill Bryson challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail.  He agrees to be accompanied by his long lost and former friend.  The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word “adventure”.

Tuesday 22nd March – “The Lady in the Van” 12A

Alan Bennett’s stage play filmed with Maggie Smith in the title role supported by a wealth of UK treasures!

Tickets at £6 will be on sale in the Spar/PO, Sunnyside, Yetminster from two weeks beforehand. Tickets include choc ice! Please try and buy your ticket in advance. Doors open at 7pm for 7.30 show start.  Wine and nibbles will also be on sale.
