Stan & Ollie

Show Date: Friday, 5th July 2019

Film Certification: PG

Storyline:

Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the legendary movie icons, Stan & Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

BAFTA-nominated for Best British Film of the Year and Best Leading Actor (Steve Coogan)

“Stan & Ollie is a gently elegiac homage to Laurel and Hardy. It’s never quite as funny as might have been expected, but it tugs at the emotions throughout. With beautiful performances by Steve Coogan (as Stan Laurel) and John C Reilly (as Oliver Hardy), it is a film about friendship and loyalty as much as a comedy.” The Independent

“These are brilliant impersonations, the kind that can only be achieved by exceptionally intelligent actors; the superb technique of both is matched by their obvious love for the originals.” The Guardian

AGE CYMRU presents SUMMER HOLIDAY (AFTERNOON FILM - see below for details)

Show Date: Friday, 19th July 2019, 1.30pm

Film Certification: U

Storyline:

Starring: Cliff Richard, Lauri Peters, Melvyn Hayes and Una Stubbs

A fabulous 60s Musical – Four London Bus mechanics strike up a deal with London Transport. They do up a double decker London Bus, drive it around Europe as a hotel and if they make it they will own and be in charge of a whole fleet. While on the road in France they pick up three ladies whose car breaks down and offer to take them to their next singing job in Athens. They also pick up a stowaway. A young, American boy. Meanwhile, a young American female singer has gone missing. Her mother (who is a VERY ambitious woman) and her aid take the story to the press and it makes the front page. They do all they can to make the story run for as long as possible, including misdirecting the bus up an extremely steep Yugoslavian hill. We find out the young American boy is actually the young American girl who is missing. Mayhem ensues as the lead character, Don falls for Barbara. Eventually, when they reach Athens, they’re arrested for kidnapping. In front of her mother and a Ballroom filled with world-press, Barbara and Don declare their love for each other and the mother accepts (after realising how ‘big’ Don will become). When the film ends, all eight people are at a Grecian beach and very much enjoying their well-deserved holiday!

Green Book

Show Date: Friday, 2nd August 2019

Film Certification: 12A

Storyline:

When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humour—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. From the official website

Winner of 3 Oscars – Best Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Screenplay
“Mortensen turns in a charming, nuanced and comedically gifted performance that feels like his most accomplished yet. Ali is even finer, playing an isolated, angry and often inebriated character unable to fully identity with, nor find acceptance within, either white or black communities. A man of few words and well-concealed emotions, the discreet way that he conveys Don’s heartache is, at points, terrifically moving.” Radio Times

“A fabulous periodic soundtrack featuring jazz, crooners and artists of the time is combined with the classical compositions played so elegantly by Dr Shirley, creating a wonderful auditory experience throughout and ultimately making Green Book a lovely story of companionship in a period of eye-opening, immense hardship.” The Upcoming
