Silver screen at Theatr Gwaun
1:01pm Monday 24th February 2014 in What's on
As one of the last independent high street cinemas around, Theatr Gwaun always has an interesting mix of films, including big hits and quirky ones you might not see anywhere else.
And March is no exception, with warm-hearted comedies, thought provoking UK independent film, and a little bit of George Clooney for good measure.
The big hit is Frozen (PG)showing from March 9 to12 (Sunday matinee 2.30pm; other showings 6.30pm).
This is the Disney that works every bit as well for adults, a full-on Broadway musical animation, a feisty heroine who chooses adventure over a soppy prince, and an epic journey through stunning snowscapes.
By contrast, Friday, March 21 at 7pm sees a special event at Theatr Gwaun, hosted by Holy Hiatus and screening two independent British films, The Lover and the Beloved, and The Edge of Dreaming, both thoughtful and uplifting films addressing the difficult issues around fear of death. The filmmakers will be present to take part in a discussion afterwards.
George Clooney’s latest hit, The Monuments Men (12A) is showing from March 23 to 26, 7.30pm, and tells the story of an unlikely World War 2 platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue masterpieces from Nazi thieves.
And March is rounded off by the magnificent Inside Llewyn Davies (15), March30 to April 3. The Coen brothers are back with a rich and idiosyncratic film following a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village scene in 1961.
Cinema tickets are £5.50 (adult), £3.50 (child) or £15 (family) and can be reserved at the Theatr Gwaun Box Office.
