Explorer + Q&A (PG)

Explorer + Q&A

Sir Ranulph Fiennes is credited as being the World’s Greatest Living Explorer. Among his extraordinary achievements he was the first to circumnavigate the world from pole to pole, crossed the Antarctic on foot, broke countless world records and discovered a lost city in Arabia. He has travelled to the most dangerous places on Earth, lost half his fingers to frostbite, raised millions of pounds for charity and was nearly cast as James Bond. But who is the man who prefers to be known as just ‘Ran’?

 

With exclusive access to Ran, his incredible film archive covering decades of expeditions and contributions from life-long friends and colleagues, EXPLORER tells the definitive story of an inspirational leader but it goes beyond a simple retrospective, ultimately revealing the man behind the myth.


This film is followed by a recorded Q&A with Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Bear Grylls.

Get Carter (18)

Get Carter

British classic, Get Carter, has finally been restored in 4K and is our August Forum Film Club screening followed by a post-film discussion in our cafe/bar! The screening will also be preceded by a short pre-recorded film about Get Carter.


This gritty 1970s gangster classic has become acknowledged as one of the greats of British cinema. Jack Carter (Caine), a London gangster, travels to Newcastle after his brother is killed in a supposed accident but Carter suspects that things may not be as they seem.


Using his documentary, realist aesthetic, Hodges’ first feature is a violent, uncompromising classic of the genre, featuring outstanding performances from Caine and Hendry, not to mention Newcastle itself, and is also notable for the extraordinarily quick turnaround from the book being published and the film being made (eight months).
