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.

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.”

The Death of Stalin

Director: Armando Iannucci

France, UK, Belgium, Canada , 2017

Run Time: 107 minutes, Certificate: 15,

Genre: Comedy, History , Language: English

Synopsis:

Armando Iannucci's hilarious political satire, which had a top quality cast, was the funniest, fiercest comedy of the year.

“as great as the ensemble is, the script is even better, easily making "The Death of Stalin" the best and funniest film of 2018 thus far”

“An incredibly funny film about a not-very-funny historical event.”

“Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Michael Palin, Jeffrey Tambor and Jason Isaacs create a formidable and selfless comedic quintet, while Iannucci's unyielding script and direction constantly stirs, twists and builds without ever overwhelming.”

“A dark, hilarious tour de force.”

The levelling

Director: Hope Dickson Leach

UK, 2016

Run Time: 83 minutes, Certificate: 15 ,

Genre: Drama, Language: English

Synopsis:

A modestly scaled, superbly crafted British drama that is a deeply moving debut by writer/director Hope Dickson Leach.

"Such films must be made. Otherwise ambitious, original young British filmmakers won't get a start and the only stories to make it to the screen will be the same old ones about aliens and boxers."

"The Levelling hits peaks and troughs which make this plucky British indie an arresting, affecting watch."

"Ellie Kendrick's towering performance - palpably conveying a life's worth of built-up anxieties and sadness - should prove star-making."

Director: Patrice Leconte

France, UK, Germany, Japan , 2003

Run Time: 88 minutes, Certificate: 12A,

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller , Language: French

Synopsis:

A delightfully droll comedy, showing as a tribute to its stars, screen legend Jean Rochefort and French pop icon Johnny Hallyday, who both passed away in 2017.

"a well-tuned character piece starring screen legend Jean Rochefort and French pop icon Johnny Hallyday as strangers with nothing in common whose chance meeting sparks a powerful friendship."

"It has real actors, a real story, a real point, and is the work of a real filmmaker, Patrice Leconte."

"There's a special pleasure in watching Rochefort and Hallyday."

"The chemistry between the two leads is remarkable."

"This is an actor's picture, with Hallyday's craggy menace chiming perfectly with Rochefort's rueful charm."

Phamtom Thread

Director: Paul Anderson

UK, USA, 2018

Run Time: 130 minutes, Certificate: 15,

Genre: Drama, Romance , Language: English, French

Synopsis:

Daniel Day Lewis gives a measured, masterful performance as a flawed man who could be tender and kind, petulant and dismissive, and deeply hurtful. What a swan song if it really is his last film role.

"If Daniel Day-Lewis is genuinely going to make good on his recent retirement announcement, he couldn't have picked a better swansong than Phantom Thread."
