Film: Mary Poppins Returns (U) at 2pm

Congleton Town Council Youth Committee present..

At 2pm.

Tickets now available from Congleton TIC - ONLY £3.00

It’s 1930s London and everyone’s favourite nanny has returned – Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) is ready to spread joy and magic in the much-anticipated sequel to the 1964 classic. This time, she finds that the Banks children have grown up and found themselves in need of a friendly face – as well as a little bit of magic. A Disney musical and sequel starring Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Ben Wishaw, along with Dick Van Dyke, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep.

Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) has a habit of turning up when she’s least expected – and when she’s needed the most.

And that’s exactly what happens on a particularly stormy day in 1930s London.

Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) and her brother Michael (Ben Whishaw) are all grown up. But times are hard in Depression-era Britain, and, Jane, Michael, and Michael’s three children are heavy with sadness, reeling from the recent death of the children’s mother. To make matters worse, Michael is struggling to pay the bills and is at risk of losing their home.

Which is why they’re so glad when, at the very house where it all began on Cherry Tree Lane, Michael and Jane’s former nanny returns.

Film: The Favourite (15)

Film: The Favourite (15)

Two showings 2.30pm and 7.00pm.

Queen Anne holds the throne while her kingdom is at war with the French. But her ill-health and strange sensibilities mean it’s down to a trusted friend to take charge within a turbulent palace. The Favourite is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and stars Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone.

It’s the early 18th Century, and England is ruled by Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman). Despite the country being at war with the French, the Queen is fragile, physically and mentally. It’s down to her most trusted ally and friend, Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) to rule secretly in her stead.

In the midst of the chaos caused by the quick to anger ruler, a new servant named Abigail (Emma Stone) is hired by the palace. Charming and endearing, Abigail quickly wins Sarah over who then takes the servant under her wing, promising a better life.

Unfortunately, Sarah’s attention is pulled from Abigail and the Queen to the brutal politics of war. In her absence, Abigail steps in as the Queen’s new aide. Taking full advantage of this opportunity, Abigail has a lazer-sharp focus on her new potential life – and won’t let anything stand in her way.

The Favourite is the newest film from surreal filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer). Starring frequent collaborator Olivia Coleman (Murder on the Orient Express) as Queen Anne, Rachel Weisz (Disobedience) and Emma Stone (La La Land) co-star in an unusual historical drama that’s set to become a future classic.

All tickets £5.

Film: Green Book (12A)

Film: Green Book (12A)

Academy Award ® nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award ® winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures’ Green Book. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (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 humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

All tickets £5.

Director Nigel Evans

Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life:

he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene -- his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure -- but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan. (who strangely now resembles Boris Karloff) returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé -- all while trying to keep his own sanity. as well. An uproarious farce on plays involving murder, Arsenic and Old Lace written by Joseph Kesselring has become a favourite amongst theatres.
