About Woking's New Cinema Club

You are invited to attend any film in Woking New Cinema Club's 37th season which is being held at the wonderfully refurbished Mayford Village Hall, which has free parking. With 17 shows we believe that an average of less than £3 per evening for members offers extremely good value for money.

Membership costs £45 for the season or you can attend a particular film for £5 per person. Whether you want to attend one or two films or sign up for the whole season, you will be assured of a warm welcome. We are showing several recent films that have only been shown briefly at local commercial cinemas (if at all!). This year we present not only films made the UK & USA but some made in Denmark, Japan and New Zealand. As well as contemporary titles, we also have some all time classic films.

Screenings are on Thursday evening and we use blu-ray discs, when available, to go with of our surround sound and cinemascope screen.

For information on joining or attending a particular film, contact our Membership Secretary, Stephen Lock on 01483 475745 or email membership@wncc.org.uk To join, simply complete the membership application form and send it (with your cheque!) to Stephen or bring it to a screening.

Performances begin at 8pm and end before 11pm. We do have an interval when light refreshments and homemade cakes can be bought.

The AGM followed by The Fireman's Ball

Horí, má panenko

(The Fireman's Ball)

Director: Miloš Forman

Czechoslovakia, Italy,

Run Time: 70 minutes, Certificate: U,

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Language: Czech

Synopsis:

Marking the death in April 2018 of its director Miloš Forman, this comedy was his final film made in Czechoslovakia and is a hugely entertaining film that is dryly funny and highly satirical.

"A socio-political satire that thrums with warmth and spontaneity, yet so enraged Communist authorities it was banned."

"The Party, the People, and the flames that won't be extinguished."

The Third Man

Director: Carol Reed

UK, 1949

Run Time: 104 minutes, Certificate: A,

Genre: Film-Noir, Mystery, Thriller , Language: English, German, Russian

Synopsis:

70 years from its initial release we present one of British cinema's most enduring and atmospheric thrillers. Directed by Carol Reed, it boasts outstanding performances from Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles. As powerful and original now as it was in 1949.

"This handsomely shot black-and-white thriller hasn't aged one bit. Terrific writing, direction and acting never go out of style."

"Set in postwar occupied Vienna, the plot is a corker, littered with memorable moments and played to perfection by an unforgettable cast that's led with distinction by Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten."

"A genuine and endlessly rewatchable classic."

Die göttliche Ordnung (The Divine Order)

Director: Petra Volpe

Switzerland, 2017

Run Time: 96 minutes, Certificate: 12,

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Language: German, English, Italian, Swiss German

Synopsis:

The likeable cast, and an empathetic central performance from Marie Leuenberger, carry this crowd-pleasing film that delivers a rousing account of the Swiss women's suffrage movement.

"Deeply researched, and the production design is astonishing ... even the cinematography seems to come from the period ... while there is gentle humour, and triumph, nothing is overplayed ... Its dignity and reserve are inseparable."

"A conventional but exceptionally warm crowd-pleaser of a movie, mostly thanks to Leuenberger's performance."

"Petra Biondina Volpe skillfully balances the personal and political in a spirited, rousing chronicle of Switzerland's women's suffrage movement, filtered through the experiences of a handful of locals."

Dramatising a true story from 1971, Steven Spielberg's film is brought to life by an outstanding ensemble cast led by Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

"Hanks is fantastic, Streep is stupendous, and Spielberg's direction is masterful."

"Steven Spielberg's tense, terrific new drama, with Streep and Hanks at their finest, celebrates the passionate bond between a free press and every thinking human being, however diminished the species in Trump's America."

A seminal French New Wave film by François Truffaut that offers an honest, sympathetic and wholly heart-breaking observation of adolescence, without trite nostalgia.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Director: Martin Mcdonagh

UK, USA, 2018

Run Time: 115 minutes, Certificate: 15,

Genre: Crime, Drama , Language: English

Synopsis:

Shocking, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny. A strong cast all produce evocative performances that are hard to forget; especially Frances McDormand, who won the Best Actress Oscar.

“Frances McDormand is superb in this hard-hitting crime drama that grabs you and doesn't let you go. Brilliant.”

“There's debate, drama, a lot of humour as well as harshness, and original characters that take the story to unexpected places that are not plot twists but seem to arise naturally out of their own complex life.”

“With a roster of memorable characters, a cast on universally great form and a script that is frequently capable of wrong-footing its audience”

“Shocking, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny.”
