Port Regis School, Motcombe Road
Motcombe, Shaftesbury, Dorset SP7 9NX United Kingdom

£4 - £8

Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film won him an Oscar and is a brilliant slapstick comedy of a tramp who escapes to a circus only to get into all sorts of trouble. Charlie Chaplin wrote and directed the film, and it was a difficult experience for him - a studio fire, death of his mother, bitter divorce from his second wife, and the IRS claiming back taxes - but out of this pain came an hour long gem of a film, funny…

The Red Turtle is a silent animated film from Japan's Studio Ghibli and according to the Guardian film reviewer Mark Kermode it's a masterpiece. It follows the fortunes of a shipwrecked man on an island, and is "eloquent, profound and moving".

The Wizard of Oz is one of the first technicolour movies made (in 1939) by MGM, and is widely considered as being one of "the greatest movies ever" (AFI 100 Years of Film). It might have lost out to Gone With the Wind at the Oscars that year for Best Picture, but The Wizard of Oz has stood the test of time and become part of popular culture in a way that few other films have. Everyone can sing "Somewhere…

£4 - £8

West Side Story is one of those films you must see before 21 - and will want to carry on seeing at intervals throughout your life. It is in parts brilliant, effervescent and a reminder that stories repeat themselves throughout life and history. The story itself is based on "Romeo and Juliet", with the Jets being the white Irish New Yorkers and the Sharks being Puerto Rican. The 1961 film is an adaptation of the 1957 broadway musical written by…

We've been wanting the opportunity to show the original King Kong movie, made in 1933 for years. If you trust the hive mind, Rotten Tomatoes rated this film the best horror movie ever made, and the 20th best movie made ever. We hasten to add that it is a PG - there is nothing you will see in here that you don't see most days on CBBC. There are obvious things to be aware of - depictions of nature and…

In the play, the action takes place entirely in the claustrophobic atmosphere of an officers’ dugout while the British officers and their men wait for the enemy attack. The movie, directed by Saul Dibb and starring…

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Lynne Franks presents POW Mentoring workshop

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Wincanton Town Hall, Market Pl
Wincanton , BA9 9LD United Kingdom

£4 - £8

The inspiration for Ryan Murphy's FX 'Feud' has been deemed campy schlock—but it's really a worthy psychological horror film with masterful performances (according to Vice). Few films blur the line between "cult classic" and "canonical masterpiece" as thoroughly as "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" When "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" hit theaters in 1962, it was a low-budget film starring two “washed-up” actresses in Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Under the old studio system it was a film…
