Next films at Public Hall

Following the huge success of the films shown in March, Bolt and Slumdog Millionaire, two more great films have been lined up for showing at the Public Hall on Saturday May 16th. They are Marley and Me (PG), starting at 5.00 pm and The Young Victoria (PG), which commences at 7.45 pm.

In Marley and Me newlyweds John and Jenny Grogan (Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston) adopt a cute, twelve pound yellow Labrador, who in no time at all, grows into a 100-pound steamroller of unbridled energy that turns the Grogan home into a disaster area. Amidst the mayhem he generates through the years, Marley sees the Grogans through the ups and downs of family life, through job and home changes and, most of all, through the myriad challenges of a growing family.

The Young Victoria chronicles Victoria's early rise to power, focusing on the romantic courtship and her legendary marriage to Prince Albert. The film begins in 1836, the year before Victoria ascended the throne, and ends in 1840. These are the early and often turbulent years of a young girl who became queen of Great Britain. Victoria was barely 18 when she was crowned. She was vivacious, fond of parties and prone to flirting with the gentlemen of the court – even her ministers. The film concentrates on her romance and legendary marriage to Prince Albert. Starring Emily Blunt and Paul Bettany, there are many familiar faces in the supporting roles, including Miranda Richardson, Jim Broadbent and Harriet Walter.

Since launching the 'cinema nights' in November 2006, the Public Hall has been the venue for viewing some exceptional films. It beats having to travel to Crewe, Newcastle or Hanley, with their associated parking problems. So, make May 16th a date in your diary and get down to the Public Hall to support this valuable village resource. This will be the last one of the latest film season before Staffordshire-based 'Reels on Wheels' take their summer break.

As usual, tickets can be bought from the Post Office and Williams' Newsagents. Prices are £2.50 for children and £5 for adults for Marley and Me and £5 for all tickets for The Young Victoria.
