The Albany Picture House is proving so popular that we’ve added two more film dates! We’ll also be announcing our New Year Season very soon, and a special Christmas Screening, so there’s plenty going on for everyone to enjoy.
Monday 14th November 2016, 3pm – The Dam Busters (1955)
In the middle of World War Two the British were desperate to strike at the industrial heart of Nazi Germany. Enter Dr Barnes Wallis (Michael Redgrave), whose 'Bouncing Bombs' are greeted with scepticism by many in the British government. Wallis teams up with RAF Wing Commander Guy Gibson (Richard Todd) to prove the bomb's worth and lead a squadron of plucky pilots in a daring mission into the enemy’s heartland.
This iconic film comes to the big screen once more at The Albany Picture House. Join us for a cup of tea, a slice of cake and a silver screen classic on the 76th anniversary of the Coventry Blitz.
Tickets are £6 adults and £4.50 concessions.
Thursday 24th November, 7pm – Ken Fero: Burn and PoPo
Ken Fero is a UK documentary filmmaker and political activist noted for his longstanding career highlighting human rights abuses in Britain and Europe. In particular, he has campaigned alongside the families of people who have died in police custody over many years. In 2001 his award winning film Injustice, banned by Channel 4, received critical praise and helped usher in reforms regarding the investigations of custodial deaths in the UK.
There will be a screening of two of Ken’s most recent short films - Burn and Po Po - dealing with issues including policing, race and inequality in the UK. There will also be a chance to discuss the films and the issues raised by them in a Q&A with him and other people involved with campaigns seeking to highlight the issue of deaths in police custody.
All tickets are £2, so book now!
Don’t forget we also still have Edward Scissorhands and Hana-bi coming to the Picture House in October and November. There’s also Albany Picture House Friends, for those of you who want to get even more from the Picture House.
