Additional details

Ah, the good old days of the penny rush, where kids could spend Saturday afternoons at the cinema for just 1p. Well, the price may have gone up to £1 (such is life), but every Saturday at 12 midday we screen matinee films aimed at children and families. Parents, carers and the kids at heart can come along (for £4.60), and children who are old enough are welcome to stay and watch the film without supervision (although Picture House staff cannot be responsible for them).

Northern Soul

Date
23rd October - 8.45pm
Duration approx 112mins
Price
Normal Ticket Prices Apply
Details

This music-rich celebration of the underground movement that became an enduring legacy of ’70s youth culture is built around the ambitions of two young friends and aspiring DJs, Matt and John (charismatic newcomers Josh Whitehouse and Elliot Langridge).

Fashion photographer Elaine Constantine’s debut feature faithfully recreates scenes featuring a legion of genuine fans dancing to the compelling rhythms of often obscure ’60s American soul artists.

Matt and John cement their friendship and discover themselves in the process, and characters played by Steve Coogan, Ricky Tomlinson and real-life soul diva Lisa Stansfield enhance the film’s narrative strength. Good-natured humour infuses the entire enterprise, and ultimately the music is the highly infectious message.

Still The Enemy Within

Date
26th October - 4.00pm
Duration approx 113mins
Price
Normal Ticket Prices Apply
Details

Still the Enemy Within is a unique insight into one of history’s most dramatic events: the 1984-85 British Miners’ Strike. No experts. No politicians. Thirty years on, this is the raw first-hand experience of those who lived through Britain’s longest strike. Follow the highs and lows of that life-changing year.

In 1984, a conservative government under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher declared war on Britain’s unions, taking on the strongest in the country, the National Union of Mineworkers. Following a secret plan, the government began announcing the closure of coal mines, threatening not just an industry but whole communities and a way of life.

Against all the forces the government could throw at them, 160 000 coal miners took up the fight and became part of a battle that would change the course of history. Still the Enemy Within tells the story of a group of miners and supporters who were on the frontline of the strike for an entire year. These were people that Margaret Thatcher labelled ‘the Enemy Within’. Many of them have never spoken on camera before.

Using interviews and a wealth of rare and never before seen archive, Still the Enemy Within draws together personal experiences – whether they’re tragic, funny or terrifying – to take the audience on an emotionally powerful journey through the dramatic events of that year.
