Arts Alive

Flicks in the Sticks.

(Follow the link above to view our programme for the season).

Bringing BIG SCREEN CINEMA into rural areas.

Our season normally runs from September to April. We show a film a month at the Yarpole Parish Hall, usually on a Saturday evening starting at 7.30pm.

We aim to screen an interesting variety of films, from critically acclaimed "must sees" to feelgood British and interesting world cinema.

Ticket prices are £5.00 (£4.00 for under 18's). A bar is open from 7.00pm before the film, giving everyone a chance for a chat and a drink.

We also invite you to pop down to our community owned pub The Bell at Yarpole afterwards to discuss the film or meet others.

Profits raised from Flicks ticket sales are used to improve hall equipment and support Arts Alive. 

 Flicks in the Sticks - Our next presentation is:

"The Favourite"

Saturday 21st September 7.30pm. Bar opens at 7.00pm


A tragicomic tale of personal and political jealousy and intrigue in the 18th century court of Queen Anne.

Won 7 BAFTAs and Oscar for Olivia Colman (leading actress). Starring: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. Queen Anne occupies the throne but is frail, so Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. New servant Abigail arrives and while Sarah is caught up in the politics of war, she fills in as the Queen's companion. Their friendship gives Abigail a chance to fulfill her ambition of returning to her aristocratic roots and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way
