Dir. Otto Bell, UK, Mongolia, 2016

An awesome real-life documentary for family audiences. The first Kazakh girl in Mongolia in a 1,000 years to learn how to hunt with a golden eagle. A visual treat in which the camera simply flies.

Dir Carol Reed, UK, 1953

Carol Reed's excellent, newly restored Cold War thriller set in the wreckage of post-war Berlin and starring James Mason, Claire Bloom and Hildegard Knef is very much in the mould of The Third Man.

Dir. Thomas Riedelsheimer, Germany, Finland, UK, 2011

Gorgeously shot and masterfully directed portrait of the international bohemian artist Andy Goldsworthy who creates beautiful sculptures for the outdoors from natural materials. Award-winning documentary only now available is immensely enjoyable.

Dir. Alexander MacKendrick, UK, 1954

Restored and remastered this is a wonderful, charming, sentimental Ealing comedy about attempts to con a wealthy American to pay for a cargo trip for the decrepit puffer boat, Maggie, to a Scottish Island.

Dir. Norman Walker, UK, 1935

Splendid first British feature from J Arthur Rank about rivalry between old and new fishing families in the seaside village of Robin Hoods Bay. Based on a book by Leo Walmsley who lived in the bay, where much (and Whitby) of the film was made.

Special early evening screening for children - free event.


Dir. Thomas Szabo/Helen Giraud, France, 2013


Bugs, beasties and ants go into battle in this wonderful and endlessly inventive, charming and dialogue free animation film. Plus the screening and prize giving from Red Ledge for Dr Simpo's Psychedelic Milkshake film competition and animation workshops.

Dir. David Butler (US 1953, 101mins U)

Shout it from the highest hill, the Deadwood stagecoach is coming over the black hills of Holmfirth. An entirely enjoyable whip-crack-away, gun totin', technicolour Doris Day musical. Sing-along it's no secret anymore...

Prize for best dressed cowgirl of the night.
