Building Facade - Common Place

June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a massive army is secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill (Brian Cox). Behind the iconic figure and rousing speeches: a man who has faced political ridicule, military failure and a speech impediment.

An impulsive, sometimes bullying personality – fearful, obsessive and hurting. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when hundreds of thousands of young men were cut down on the beaches of Gallipoli. The untold story of Britain’s most celebrated leader, uncovering the true nature of Churchill’s herculean war-time status and his vital relationship with “Clemmie” (Miranda Richardson) – the love that inspired him to greatness.

Walsingham Picture Palace on Tuesday 24th October

Join us for our half term screening! On Tuesday 24th October at 7.30pm.

We screen the animated film MY LIFE AS A COURGETTE (PG) + short (originally voiced in French, we are screening the English language version).
With Erick Abbate, Romy Beckman, Ness Krell, Amy Sedaris. Director Claude Barras. 66mins

Nominated in the 2017 Oscars Best Animation category, an animated film which defies categorisation. A film for half term week, this is not a purely children’s film. Claude Barras’ stop-motion animated feature is a poignant and well observed story about the darker side of childhood. It touches on bereavement, bullying and the desperate plight of young orphans but does so in a way that is humorous and ultimately redemptive.
