The Phantom Of The Open
Craig Roberts | UK | 2021 | 106m | 12A

At the age of 46, happy-go-lucky crane operator and all-round lovable family man Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance) feels it’s time to try his hand at something new. Deciding on a whim that golf is his new calling, the budding sportsman sets his sights on mastering the game. But Maurice is not a man to do things by halves, and in a turn of events that you just couldn’t make up, he secures a coveted spot in the qualifying round of the 1976 British Open. With the enduring support of his loving wife and disco-dancing sons, Maurice borrows some books, buys the clobber and gets hold of a set of clubs. There’s only one problem; he has never played a round in his life.

Adapted by Simon Farnaby from his book ‘The Phantom of The Open: Maurice Flitcroft, the World’s Worst Golfer’ (co-written by Scott Murray), Craig Roberts’ film is a heartfelt celebration of an eternal optimist who never let his sporting inadequacies stand in the way

Jennifer Peeden, Joseph Nizeti | Australia | 2021 | 74m | U

A cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers.
River takes its audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before.
Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script creates an experience that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.

Directed by Jennifer Peedom (Mountain) and written by Robert Macfarlane, with a score by Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra and featuring music by Johnny Greenwood and Radiohead, and narration by Willem Dafoe.

This screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with the director Jennifer Peedom.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

Wee Film Club: The Highway Rat
| 25m | U

The Wee Film Club runs throughout the year showing with short films for young children along with a fun activity.

At 10.30am we present a story or sing-along plus a short film or collection of short films/TV programmes for really wee ones. Join Emily Murray for a sing-along at this month’s Wee Film Club, followed by the screening of the film adaptation animation “The Highway Rat” (Cert U, 25 minutes). Based on the loved children's book of the same name written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, “The Highway Rat” tells the tale of a ravenous rat who craves buns, biscuits and all sweet things. Tearing along the highway, he searches for sugary treats to steal, until his sweet tooth leads him to a sticky end.
