Stan and Ollie poster

Laurel and Hardy – the world’s greatest comedy team – face an uncertain future as the golden era of their Hollywood films is long behind them.  Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953.  The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past, and long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.

Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel and John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy give superb performances in this touching and  funny film.

Lurgashall Film Nights are back with this feel-good comedy based on a true story and set in the Cornish village of Post Isaac.

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy).  He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he tries to gain the respect of the unlikely band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.

Film Night – “First Man” – Wed. 1 May 2019

Fifty years ago this July, astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the moon.

To celebrate this historic event, we are proud to be showing ‘First Man’, which tells the story of Neil Armstrong (played by Ryan Gosling) and the work of the NASA space programme in the decade leading up to the moon landing.

Based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues, and the nation itself for one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Lurgashall Village Hall – Wed. 1 May
Tickets £5 on the door. Doors and Bar open 7pm for 7.30pm start

Film Night – “Breathe” – Wed. 3 April 2019

Andy Serkis’s directorial debut about the life of pioneering polio survivor Robin Cavendish is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.

Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. This is a true story and stars Andrew Garfield as Robin, Claire Foy as his wife, with Tom Hollander and Hugh Bonneville in support. 

Peter & Amanda Worrall were one-time neighbours of the Cavendish family and knew Robin well.  They have kindly agreed to tell us a little about Robin at the start of the film.
