Heyford Picturedrome – Thursday 18th April 2019

Our next film to be shown on Thursday 18th April is ‘Stan and Ollie’, a 2019 British film starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly. Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the spector of Laurel and Hardy’s past; the longburied ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.

Doors open at the usual time of 7.00pm for free tea or coffee with the film due to be screened at 7.45pm.

There will be a licensed bar for the purchase of wine and soft drinks.
