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.

La Famille Bélier

Director: Eric Lartigau

France, 2015

Run Time: 103 minutes, Certificate: 12,

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Music, Language: French, Sign Languages, Spanish

Synopsis:

France's most popular film of 2015. A comedy about a young girl whose bond to her hearing-impaired family is challenged by the discovery of an extraordinary talent for music.

"A charming and hilarious coming of age story set in rural France, where Paula lives with her deaf parents and discovers an amazing gift for singing."

" It works on many levels: as a rites-of passage story, a rustic family tale, a movie about deafness, a film about singing and a study in small-town politics."

"Original and in perfect pitch with its audience, The Bélier Family is a charmer."

"It's a real family crowd-pleaser that's well worth seeking out."

Hell's Angels

Howard Hughes' film has superb air scenes that have scarcely been matched.



“Over 80 years later, Hell’s Angels remains visceral, thrilling, and damn entertaining.”

“a fascinating movie and an especially huge achievement in its flying sequences”

“a rousing, hair-raising experience”

“Hell’s Angels is also a quintessential pre-Code film, as good old-fashioned cursing and flickers of adult sexuality make it through”

“one of the first blockbusters of the sound era”

Mediterranea

Our One World Week screening

“A timely humanistic immigration film.”

“Carpignano (the director) has discovered a genuine performer with charisma and confidence in Koudous Seihon.”

“With capsized migrant boats in the Mediterranean dominating the news recently and signalling that pressure points of injustice cannot hold on indefinitely in Europe, indie director Jonas Carpignano’s feature debut Mediterranea, which premiered at Cannes, is raw and all too relevant!”

“Rather than preaching, Mediterranea masterfully brings a human face to a grave issue in Europe.”

I, Daniel Blake

A multi award winning protest cry for common humanity from Ken Loach. This contemporary drama is funny, upsetting but ultimately life affirming.

A United Kingdom

Marking Black History Month, this shows the true life story, based around a forgotten romance, that caused familial, national and international strife.

"A fact-based political romance about one of the most remarkable love stories you've never heard about."

"A welcome reminder that, even in the direst of situations and in the most impossible of times, love can indeed trump hate."

"A United Kingdom combines history, romance and political intrigue for a solid and ultimately satisfying dramatic story."

"Screenwriter Guy Hibbert and Asante pull off a precision balancing act, illuminating the intensity of the love the couple shared and never once allowing their romance to take a back seat to the issues."

"Oyelowo and Pike are perfect together, conveying a deep well of love buoyed by joy and fierce loyalty."

Shi (Poetry)

One of the best films in 2010, this beautifully acted Korean film is a deeply moving tale that brings a lump to the throat.

For cinema goer's who appreciate that there's a world of cinema out there, this low-key South Korean drama is a little gem.

"A Korean movie about an aging housemaid that turns out to be one of the best films of the year."

"What makes Poetry so involving is that it's never clear how the story will be resolved."

"Like the flowing waters in its opening shot, Poetry is a beautiful film that carries us along slowly, subtly, yet unrelentingly."
