In the Langstone Room
Introducing Film Fridays, our new series of monthly film documentary screenings. These will be shown in the Langstone Room thanks to new screening equipment provided by the British Film Institute’s Neighbourhood Cinema Fund. We have tried to make your experience even better with some new chairs in the Langstone Room. A contribution towards the new seating was kindly made in memory of Josie Harper, who loved The Spring. Each film screening will begin with a short introduction and there will be a chance to stay around afterwards for an informal post-screening discussion.
Film Fridays: £6.50, £5.85 concessions (does not include refreshments).

One of the most talked about films at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, this powerful documentary highlights the Church’s origins, from its roots in the mind of founder L. Ron Hubbard to its rise in popularity in Hollywood and beyond.
