FIFTIES FILM FESTIVAL PROGRAMME

Posted on

If you are planning coming to one some or all of the five films on Thursday, here is a guide to what you can expect. A programme will be available at the door for anyone interested in the stories behind these films.

A slice of life and entertainment in Britain 70 years ago, all these films came out in 1952 or 1953.

If you are coming – and you want to be comfortable, bring a cushion! We have upgraded our sound and projector, but we have retained our seats!

Remember, seats are free, and ices will be on sale in the intervals.

PETER PAN

 

 

A classic of traditional animation [and from a thoroughly British story], Peter Pan continues to enchant. Starting at 1.10pm, it’s our first movie, and is aimed at children of all ages.

THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT

 

Set in the sleepy English village of Titfield, the inhabitants wake up one morning to discover that British Railways are closing their branch line, and handing transport over to a coach firm. There follows a determined fight to keep the trains running.. Starting at 2.35 pm, this Ealing comedy, shot in colour, is a delight.

THE CRUEL SEA

 

Afternoons were once about westerns and war films, so here is one of the greatest. The Cruel Sea is heroic and gripping, and offers a realistic and uplifting story of the Battle of the Atlantic, back in the Forties. Starting at 4.20 pm, and not 2.20 as on the poster.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

 

One of Oscar Wilde’s funniest plays, and deservedly a classic film, with high octane performances all round, including from the famous handbag. The important thing to remember is that it will start around 6.40 pm

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY

 

The famous beach scene is a classic, and is one of many reasons why From Here to Eternity is one of the great romantic films of all time, as well as being a good example of how to weave real history [the attack on Pearl Harbour] into a love story, and vice versa. Our final film starts at 8.35 pm

FULL SUPPORTING PROGRAMME

As well as ices, we will be offering film treats between each film. Cartoons, newsreels, memories – we hope to have all on show during the festival. Hope to see you there!

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH NORTHUMBRIA POLICE

Attached is a leaflet about a new Local Police initiative named Northumbria Connected.   They tell us:

“Northumbria Police would like as many people as possible to sign up to the website as it is an easy way to send and receive messages with Northumbria Police.  Police are able to send information on matters you wish to receive effecting the your community. People can also create their own groups and can help send feedback to Police in relation to problems in the local area.   Please could you have a look at www.northumbriaconnected.com .   

The PC will be connecting via their website, but there is no reason why individuals should not do this as well. Click the link below for the leaflet we’ve been sent.

SPEED NEWS 1 – DATA

Posted on

A Police Speedwatch was conducted on the 29/09/21 at Lowick, all vehicles checked were in order.  Unfortunately it missed the driver who went past the Vicarage at 70-75 mph on the 16/09/2021 at 23:30:00.
The rechargeable batteries for the Village Hall (East) Radar Activated Speed Sign were replaced as one was defective.  However, this revealed a further problem with the sign’s Bluetooth that was not initially obvious.  The repair continues.
Meanwhile, here are the results from the Vicarage (West) Radar Activated Speed Sign below:
