Friday July 7Lion (2016 – 118 minutes)  When Saroo, a five year old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta more than a thousand miles from his home, he is frightened and lonely and too young to identify himself or his home village. He manages to survive on the streets until he is accepted into an orphanage. In due course he is adopted by an Australian couple and grows up there in a caring family environment. But, as he gets older he increasingly feels the need to try to trace his family in India. A heart-warming story with that feel good factor.

Friday August 4 – An American in Paris (1951 – 113 minutes)  When Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), a struggling artist  living in Paris is ‘discovered’ by a wealthy heiress, she has more than just an interest in his art. Meanwhile Jerry falls for the beautiful Lise (Leslie Caron), who is, unfortunately for him, already romantically engaged with Henri (Georges Guetary), a night club singer. With Jerry’s best friend played by the wise cracking concert pianist Oscar Levant, the film sparkles with George Gershwin’s wonderful music and of course Gene Kelly’s supreme artistry on the dance floor. One of the finest MGM musicals ever made and in Technicolor on the big screen, what more could one want?

Friday September 1Their Finest (2016 – 117 minutes) Set during the Blitz of the Second World War, the film stars Gemma Arterton as a secretary who joins the cast and crew of a major propaganda film as a scriptwriter for the Ministry of Information Film Unit. With her colleagues Tom (Sam Claflin), and ageing romantic lead Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio struggle against the odds to complete the film and to make a difference and contribute something meaningful to the war effort, despite battling sexism, political interference and jealous relatives.
