News about our November film and about membership for our 2017/18 Season

Our November film is Churchill (Cert PG), a 2017 British historical war drama film directed by Jonathan Teplitzky.

The film stars Scottish actor Brian Cox in the title role, with Miranda Richardson and John Slattery in supporting roles, and is based on the life of Winston Churchill in the days leading up to the Normandy Landings.

Churchill is being shown in The Corn Exchange on Friday 17th November 2017 at 7.30pm and Saturday 18th November 2017 at 7.30pm.

As allied forces gather on the South coast of England, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, Churchill is consumed by self-doubt about the success or failure of the operation. The unflinching support of his brilliant, unflappable wife, Clementine, helps halt the Prime Minister's physical and mental collapse and leads him to greatness.

This superbly acted film, with an excellent ensemble cast, received widespread acclaim from critics and cinemagoers alike, and is considered by many to be the best British film of 2017, with Brian Cox tipped for the Best Actor award at the forthcoming BAFTAs in 2018.

Admission is £6, with tickets available from Hamiltons Newsagents and at the door on the evening, subject to availabilty.

About Us

Biggar Little Cinema was founded in February 2011, and is run as a community cinema on a non-profit basis.

As a not-for-profit organisation, our aim is to disburse all the surplus from our screenings as charitable donations, to local organisations and Rotary projects. So far, with your help, we have raised over £22,000.

We also aim to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema.

Our films are shown in high-resolution digital quality, and projected using the latest digital equipment on to a full-size cinema screen. To match the exceptional quality of our picture, our sound is Dolby stereo using high definition loudspeakers. The Corn Exchange is well-known as an excellent venue, with very comfortable cinema-style seating and a cosy atmosphere. A full bar is available both before and after each screening, with a lounge area for relaxing and chatting with friends. All in all, Biggar Little Cinema offers a perfect location - and all proceeds go to support local organisations and Rotary projects.
