FeaturedBONUS SCREENINGS

These screenings are in addition to the standard programme and are open to all members (Even if your card is full).
At George’s suggestion we are commemorating Kirk Douglas with a pair of extra screenings.

Ace In The Hole
Billy Wilder | USA | 1951 | 111 min
Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas)is a brash reporter with a serious drinking problem who is resentfully stagnating in a New Mexico backwater after being repeatedly fired from jobs in the big time. He sees a chance to manufacture a scoop when a man is trapped by a rockfall.
Sunday 22nd March at 4.30 PM

Lonely Are The Brave
David Miller | USA | 1962 | 103 min
Kirk Douglas plays a man out of his time, a wandering cowboy in a world where jet planes streak across the sky and big trucks belt along concrete highways that slice through the sagebrush. Altruistically, the cowboy tries to spring a friend from a New Mexico jail, and then finds himself a fugitive on the wrong side of the law.
