Green Book

AWARDS SEASON FILM:

Oscars: 5 nominations

Golden Globes: 5 nominations, 3 wins

BAFTAS: 4 nominations


Recent winner of the top prize at Toronto International Film Festival, Green Book is the uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship that transcended race and class.


Set in 1962, Italian-American Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to chauffeur African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a concert tour through the Deep South. Don is aware of the troubles that he might face in different locations due to the colour of his skin and requires someone to act as both driver and bouncer. They must rely on The Green Book, a guide to the few establishments that are safe for African-Americans and embark on a journey that will change both of their lives.


With strong performances from Ali (following his Oscar-winning turn in Moonlight) and Mortensen (A History of Violence), there is also a great chemistry between the leads. Director Peter Farrelly, best known for his crowd-pleasing comedies Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary, succeeds brilliantly in making the vital subject of racial division in the 1960s America into a smart and charming film.

If Beale Street Could Talk (15)

If Beale Street Could Talk

AWARDS SEASON FILM:

Oscars: 3 nominations

Golden Globes: 3 nominations, 1 win

BAFTAS: 2 nominations


Adapted from James Baldwin’s powerful novel by Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, If Beale Street Could Talk is a lyrical celebration of love, both familial and romantic, told through the prism of a young African-American couple’s struggle for justice in 1970s Harlem. At the centre of the story is Tish, a newly engaged woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first-born child to term.


Jenkins’ elegant third feature sings with soulful performances from a largely unknown cast, and paints a wonderful portrait of New York against a backdrop of social change and injustice. It’s a dreamy, sometimes heartbreaking tale of love against impossible odds, and a timely reminder that compassion can be a force of nature.

In a remote Icelandic farming valley, two brothers who haven't spoken in 40 years have to come together in order to save what's dearest to them - their sheep.


Nordic Voices celebrate the many things which draw the North East and the Nordic countries together. Their main event is Sankta Lucia, a Swedish festival of light that we have organised in Hexham Abbey for the last two years.


In 2019 they will be collaborating with different Tynedale events to add a bit of Nordic culture.


Led by Forum Cinema Hexham, Tyne Valley Film Festival will bring together communities in and around the Tyne Valley for a celebration of the history of film.

Royal Ballet: Flight Pattern Triple Bill

TWO RECENT WORKS AND ONE WORLD PREMIERE SHOWCASE THE CONTEMPORARY FACE OF THE ROYAL BALLET.


The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Royal Ballet: Romeo and Juliet

SHAKESPEARE’S STAR-CROSSED LOVERS ENCOUNTER PASSION AND TRAGEDY IN KENNETH MACMILLAN’S 20TH-CENTURY BALLET MASTERPIECE.


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Royal Opera: Faust (TBC)

Royal Opera: Faust

EXPERIENCE THE DECADENCE AND ELEGANCE OF 1870S PARIS IN DAVID MCVICAR’S SPECTACULAR PRODUCTION OF GOUNOD’S BEST-LOVED OPERA.


There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids their marriage, a fatal accident triggers a drama of obsession, vengeance and tragedy. Jonas Kaufmann and Anna Netrebko star in Verdi’s epic La forza del destino (The Force of Destiny) an opera which demands the very best of singers for its powerful music and the fullest theatrical treatment for its story of bitter revenge pursued across miles and years. The production comes to The Royal Opera in a sensational staging from Amsterdam packed with colour and action. It is directed by Christof Loy and conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.

Shoes + Illustrated Talk

Showing as part of Tyne Valley Film Festival.


Shoes (1916)

The film will follow an illustrated lecture from silent film critic and expert, Pamela Hutchinson.


Young shop assistant Eva Meyer, sole wageearner for a family of six, is driven to desperate measures by her urgent need for a new pair of shoes. The central performance of Mary MacLaren (a discovery of director Lois Weber) is subtle, natural and deeply affecting. A remarkably sophisticated slice of storytelling, Shoes is also a fascinating time capsule of urban working-class life in 1916, with some brilliant location shooting on the streets of Los Angeles.

The Gardener (PG)

The Gardener

A charity screening of The Gardener in aid of Red Cross Foundation.


The Gardener is a documentary reflecting on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.


Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time in 2009.


Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.


Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.

Mountaineering talk by Doug Scott CBE


Doors open at 6pm with talk at 7pm


Scott first started rock climbing at the age of thirteen on the Black Rocks of Derbyshire. Money was short and as they grew older Scott and his friends hitch-hiked everywhere, bivvying out under overhanging rocks, in caves and sometimes in snow holes.


In 1975 Scott and Dougal Haston went on to become the first Britons to stand on the summit of Everest. Descending late they survived the highest bivouac ever, 100m below the summit, without sleeping bags, oxygen or frostbite.


Proceeds from ticket sales for this evening will be shared between Hexham Rotary Club Disaster Fund and Community Action Nepal’s Earthquake Reconstruction Fund www.canepal.org.uk

Tarset First Thursdays has been running for 14 years at Tarset Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month - the season typically runs from September to May, taking a break in the summer.


The idea is to present films from different periods and cultures that will have popular appeal, whilst still being slightly unusual and perhaps not ones that have had a wider showing in cinemas. However, this is not sacrosanct, some of the classics that have been shown in the past suggest that these are very popular too. Films start at 7.30pm and admission is £4. A licensed bar is usually available.
