November Film Night

Our audience for ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’ was somewhat smaller than expected, but those who attended were broadly positive about the film.  Thanks very much to Penny for stepping in for Jacky and Paul in the kitchen – we wish Jacky all the very best after her recent operation.

There’s a change to our scheduled programme this month. Because ‘Oppenheimer’ is exceeding all expectations with its first run in cinemas, its DVD/BluRay release date has been put back and is unfortunately not yet available to us through Moviola.  We have therefore brought forward our December film.

  On Monday 6th November, in association with Devon Moviola, we proudly present ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ (109 mins, Cert. 12 – infrequent strong language, moderate sex references, drug references).  Lily JamesShazad Latif and Emma Thompson star in this delightful romantic comedy in which a documentary filmmaker films her best friend’s journey into an arranged marriage in line with his family’s Pakistani heritage.  Directed by Shekar Kapur (‘Elizabeth’).  Nothing to do with the 1993 Tina Turner biopic!

Doors open 6.30pm, film starts 7.00pm at Hawkchurch Village Hall, EX13 5XD.  Ticket reservations £5.50 from or leave a message on 01297 678176 (socially-distanced seating available if reserved in advance); tickets also available for £5.50 from Hawkchurch Community Shop or £6.00 on the door (cash only). Subtitles for the hard-of-hearing provided when supplied by the film distributors.  Home-made cake and other tasty refreshments available.

Penny and I look forward to seeing you at the village hall.  Thanks very much to Helen Salway-Roberts for offering to lend a hand in the kitchen.

Next month’s film will be on Monday 4th December.  We hope very much that it will be ‘Oppenheimer’!  More info next month.
