The Boss Baby (U) Saturday 3rd June at 3.30pm


Dir: Tom McGrath | Country USA Year 2017 |97 mins Cast | Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Eric Bell Jr. DreamWorks Animation invite you to meet a most unusual baby who wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Letters from Baghdad (PG) Thursday 15th June at 8pm

Thoughtful Thursdays

Dir: Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbüehl | Country USA/UK/France Year 2016 |95 mins Cast |Tilda Swinton Gertrude Bell was a pioneering English writer, archaeologist, diplomat and spy whose travels through the Arabian desert gave her local knowledge unparalleled by her British peers. Reflecting on the life, work and character of this remarkable woman, Oelbaum and Krayenbühl weave together a rich tapestry of fascinating archive alongside Bell’s writings, letters to her parents voiced by Tilda Swinton, and testimony from peers including TE Lawrence and Vita Sackville-West. Though writing a century ago, the acute contemporary relevance of Bell’s words is astonishing – at times even chilling.

The Sense of an Ending (15)

His quest to recover this diary, now in Veronica’s possession, forces him to revisit his flawed recollections of his friends and of his younger self.

Whisky Galore ( PG) Friday 30th June at 7.30pm

Dir: Gillies MacKinnon| Country UK Year 2016 |98 mins Cast | Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Kevin Guthrie Remake of a 1949 Ealing classic of the same name, which itself was based on a real-life incident that occurred in 1941 on the Hebridean island of Eriskay when the SS Politician ran aground. The tale of how a group of local Scottish islanders raided a shipwreck for its consignment of 24,000 cases of whisky quickly became legend. What’s less well reported, however, was the fact that the ship was also carrying a sizeable amount of hard cash. nearly 290,000 ten shilling notes on board as well (this would be the equivalent of several million pounds at today’s prices), not all of which was ever recovered.

Tickets are also available from Royston Town Hall office, open Monday - Friday, 9am – 4pm
