“From its wide skies to vast, sandy, windswept beaches, Norfolk bequeaths you that most valuable and elusive thing in our crushed, hectic modern lives: a sense of space.”

Walsingham Picture Palace July cinema screening: The Book Thief

book_thiefOn Tuesday 29th July at 7.30pm we screen THE BOOK THIEF (12A) 125 mins

As the horrors of World War II Germany unfold, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents. This is a wartime story told from the other side. The action is set in a small German town in a German working class family where the war and Nazism are facts of life over which ordinary people have no control. A young foster child discovers the meaning of life through her obsession with books and reading (including ones rescued from Nazi bonfires).

Reviewers have praised its ‘fresher perspective on the war’ and its focus on the ‘consistent thread of humanity’ in the story. Emily Watson and Geoffrey Rush play the parents. A wonderful story based on a wonderful book. Rated 12A, this is a family film for the holidays.

Tickets £4.00 (£3.50 members) on the door
