Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - What's On -

THE CINEMAPI­LAR English film as­so­ci­a­tion will be screen­ing the John Mad­den-di­rected cos­tume drama Mrs Brown on Thurs­day, March 22 at 19.00 and Satur­day, March 24 at 17.00.

The film stars Judi Dench, Billy Con­nolly, Antony Sher, Ger­ard But­ler and Ge­of­frey Palmer.

While on an ex­tended stay at Bal­moral Cas­tle and still mourn­ing the death of her beloved Prince Al­bert, Queen Vic­to­ria meets Mr Brown, a mem­ber of her house­hold staff who thinks the time has come for her to start liv­ing a nor­mal life. He soon gains the Vic­to­ria’s favour and friend­ship and his author­ity and sta­tus in the house­hold are soon on the rise. This cre­ates con­cerns among her many ad­vis­ers who see their own in­flu­ence di­min­ish­ing and the Queen's rep­u­ta­tion be­ing tar­nished. As a re­sult, they move to en­sure Mr Brown’s fu­ture in­flu­ence in the house­hold is kept in check.

Prior to that on Satur­day, March 17 at 17.00 they will be show­ing the To­mas Al­fred­son-di­rected mys­tery thriller The Snow­man.

The film stars Michael Fass­ben­der, Re­becca Fer­gu­son, Char­lotte Gains­bourg, Jonas Karls­son, and J.K. Sim­mons, and tells the fic­tional story of Harry Hole, an elite crime squad’s lead de­tec­tive, who in­ves­ti­gates the dis­ap­pear­ance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an omi­nous­look­ing snow­man. With the help of a bril­liant re­cruit, the cop must con­nect decades-old cold cases to the bru­tal new one if he hopes to out­wit this un­think­able evil be­fore the next snow­fall.

Stan­dard ad­mis­sion for all films is €5 for adults and €3 for chil­dren, how­ever there are also two adult bonus ticket schemes: one cov­er­ing eight films for €30 and an­other for four films at €15 - mean­ing sav­ings of €10 and €5 re­spec­tively.

The bonus tick­ets are valid un­til they are com­pletely used, there is no time scale and the holder does not have to visit each week.
