Our January film is The Post, a 2017 American historical political thriller film, directed and produced by Steven Spielberg. Set in the early 1970s, the film depicts the true story of attempts by journalists at The Washington Post to publish the Pentagon Papers, classified documents regarding the 30-year involvement of the United States government in the Vietnam War.
The Post is being shown in The Corn Exchange on Friday 25th January at 7.30pm and Saturday 26th January at 7.30pm.

About our Films
We conducted a detailed audience survey at the end of our first full season, asking viewers which of our films they had especially enjoyed, and the type of film they would like to see in the future.
We have been informed by these comments, and have borne them in mind when selecting titles for our screenings. Hence, our objectives are to choose up-to-date films, many of them award winners, with a wide audience appeal, as well as films which we believe offer something a little unusual, and hence of special interest to cinemagoers.
We have also undertaken audience surveys to determine which days of the week are most suitable for our cinemagoers. As a result, we show our films on Friday and Saturday evenings wherever possible, as these are the two evenings which have been voted as the most popular.
We have six superb films for our new season which commenced in October - a multiple Oscar and BAFTA-winning drama, two true-life stories, and three wonderful British films, one of them featuring the return of one of the UK's favourite characters!
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 £25,000.
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.
