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 unusual foreign films.

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 other locals.

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 winner of our Classic film vote of regular Flicks attenders.

When Randle Patrick McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. However, Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients under strict control using a variety of means. The battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward's patients.

This 1975 comedy drama won our Classic film vote from a poll of regular Flicks attenders. Cert 18 133 mins
