VICTORIA AND ABDUL PG
Biography/Drama/History 110 mins PG
The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. The two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.
“There’s both pointed mischief and genuine emotion in abundance as this fascinating true story emerges from the shadows of history. To portray Queen Victoria as a pioneering multiculturalist perhaps errs on the side of generosity, yet it’s surprising how much still rings true in this fable about Britain’s intoxication with the idea of India… as long as the more troubling reality remains safely at arm’s length.” Radio Times
“Dench has become the living embodiment of fine acting, so much so that it is easy to take her for granted. Don’t even think it! Her performance as Victoria in the evening of her reign is not a reboot of Mrs B without make-up. It is riveting and unique and lifts the film above its entertainment grade into a position of genuine respect.” Eye for Film

“…a fine cast in a quirky and charming piece of cinematic soufflé with Keaton and Gleeson in sparkling form. It’s fun.” RTÉ

New ticket pricing for 2018:
We have been running Walsingham’s community cinema with the same ticket price of £4 since 2009! With this we offered a £5 annual membership, which allowed for two discounted tickets, at £3.50 each, per show. Although we have hugely appreciated these annual contributions from the small number of you who chose to become members, we realise that very few actually got full value out of their membership – which would have to be 10 attendances for one person or 5 for a couple or two friends.
We have also been under pressure to increase our ticket price. Instead of doing that we are keeping tickets at £4, and removing the membership fee. That way a little extra per show will go to the distributors.
Cheaper tickets for young people
Meanwhile we’ve reduced our young person’s ticket price to £2, and raised the age limit to 25!
