Arts Alive

Flicks in the Sticks.

(Follow the link above to view our programme for the season).

Bringing BIG SCREEN CINEMA into rural areas.

Our season normally runs from September to April. We show a film a month at the Yarpole Parish Hall, usually on a Saturday evening starting at 7.30pm.

We aim to screen an interesting variety of films, from critically acclaimed "must sees" to feelgood British and interesting world cinema.

Ticket prices are £5.00 (£4.00 for under 18's). A bar is open from 7.00pm before the film, giving everyone a chance for a chat and a drink.

Profits raised from Flicks ticket sales are used to improve hall equipment and support Arts Alive.

Our next film will be:

Stan & Ollie

Yarpole Parish Hall                      

Steve Coogan and John C Reilly give delightful performances nailing the duo’s body language, mannerisms and routines. 1953 with their immense fame on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ and Ollie ‘Hardy’ embark on a gruelling farewell tour of British seaside towns. The tour starts badly; modest music halls, cramped little guesthouses, they struggle for audiences. But a series of TV guest spots rekindle the country’s interest and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale. But old resentments surface, particularly once ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida, join them. A charming, poignant, insightful study of lifelong male friendship this is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest pairs of comedians of all time. Starring: Steve Coogan, John C Reilly, Shirley Henderson Cert 12a 97 mins
