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.

Israel, France , 2017

Run Time: 101 minutes, Certificate:- ,

Genre: Drama, Language: Hebrew, Arabic

Synopsis:

Three Palestinian women share a flat in Tel Aviv in a film with powerful performances. It tells a very human story about women, covering complex and timely issues.

"This expertly crafted narrative shows Arab-Israelis as you've never seen them before, breaking all the major taboos of the group's long-standing culture."

"In Between is a compelling study of Arab women in today's Tel Aviv that's delightful and eye-opening in equal measure."

"The three leads poignantly convey the stress of living each day in fear and frustration."

"It doesn't just raise women's voices; it tells a very human story about women who are complex and believable and intriguing."

"Whether by serendipity or prophetic insight or some combination of the two, it's a perfect movie for the moment."

L'homme du Train

(Man on the Train)

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."

Infamous & AGM

Director: Douglas McGrath

USA, 2006

Run Time: 115 minutes, Certificate: 15,

Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama, Language: English

Synopsis:

Daniel Craig and Sandra Bullock are impressive but this is Toby Jones's film as he stars as Truman Capote in a powerful story that shouldn't be missed.

Toby Jones' uncanny portrayal of the short, effeminate writer with the funny voice, gives the film its credibility and compassion.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Director: Taika Waititi

New Zealand, 2016

Run Time: 97 minutes, Certificate: 12A,

Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Language: English

Synopsis:

Starring Sam Neill, this New Zealand film is a warmly funny and delightful adventure comedy.

The charmingly offbeat Hunt for the Wilderpeople unites a solid cast, a talented filmmaker, and a poignant, funny, deeply affecting message

It has all the makings of a new childhood classic: it's got wonder and adventure and loads of humor, and ultimately winds up on the side of optimism but it also has moments of genuine tragedy and danger.

I can't remember the last time I laughed this much at a movie. This wacky adventure set in New Zealand's wilderness is outrageously funny. It is filled with quirky, compelling characters and witty dialogue.

Nora inn (Stray Dog)

Nora inu

Run Time: 119 minutes, Certificate: PG,

Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller, Language: Japanese

A gripping Japanese drama about a policeman who looses his gun, and a criminal who may have taken it. Directed by Akira Kurosawa , his third film, and starring Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura.
