Au­tumn sea­son un­der way with tale of ski-jumper

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Thelistings -

Olympic themed en­ter­tain­ment will con­tinue in Oundle on Sun­day as Oundle Cin­ema’s Au­tumn Sea­son leaps into ac­tion with a screen­ing of Ed­die the Ea­gle, the feel good film about the un­likely but coura­geous Bri­tish ski-jumper who won the hearts of sports fans dur­ing the 1988 Win­ter Olympics.

The screen­ing is part of the Nene Val­ley Fes­ti­val – a week of cul­tural events for all to en­joy through­out the lo­cal area.

The vol­un­teer-led Oundle Cin­ema’s main pro­gramme con­tin­ues with screen­ings of Carol, star­ring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, Bridge of Spies the Cold War spy story for which Mark Ry­lance won an Os­car as best sup­port­ing ac­tor to Tom Hanks’s lead role, Trumbo , which tells the story of a screen­writer’s en­deav­ours to al­low free­dom of speech and thought in 1940s Hol­ly­wood and the heart­break­ing Son of Saul which won an Os­car and a Golden Globe award for its gritty de­pic­tion of an ef­fort to give a boy a re­li­gious fu­neral in Auschwitz.

Fam­ily fo­cused films Florence Foster Jenk­ins, The Jun­gle Book and a screen­ing of Matthew Bourne’s Sleep­ing Beauty pro­vide ex­cel­lent en­ter­tain­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties as the evenings draw in. All films are shown at the Stahl The­atre, West Street, Oundle, PE8 4EJ.

Many of the most pop­u­lar of re­cent film re­leases can also be seen in the nine lo­cal ‘out­reach’ cin­e­mas which are sup­ported by Oundle Cin­ema: Brig­stock, Of­ford, Or­ton Water­ville, Waden­hoe, Stan­wick, Cat­worth, Ring­stead, Thrap­ston and Wood­new­ton will show a range of ex­cel­lent films which in­clude Dad’s Army, Lady in the Van, Hail Cae­sar!, The Dan­ish Girl, Our Kind of Traitor, Eye in the Sky and Suf­fragette.

dOCs+, the doc­u­men­tary strand of Oundle Cin­ema, will screen three in­ter­est­ing, con­trast­ing films dur­ing the Au­tumn. They in­clude The Pearl But­ton – a mov­ing doc­u­men­tary by Pa­tri­cio Guz­man which unites dis­parate hap­pen­ings around the world to cre­ate pow­er­ful and ar­rest­ing ar­gu­ments in film. The sea­son con­tin­ues with The Mes­sen­ger – which doc­u­ments the mi­gra­tory pat­terns of birds, the im­pact which the cli­mate and man is hav­ing on them and how birds are adapt­ing to sur­vive.

The fi­nal doc­u­men­tary, The Di­vide, takes a thought pro­vok­ing look at the in­creas­ing po­lar­ity around the globe be­tween the ‘haves’ and ‘havenots’.

All screen­ings are on the third Wed­nes­day of the month in Flet­ton House, off Glapthorn Road, Oundle, PE8 4JA.
