Welcome to the May edition of the kinokulture cinema newsletter

We have fewer film screenings this month as 'TWO' by Jim Cartwright, the last play of the Attfield Theatre Company's current season will be in rehearsal and production.

However, we have the exciting news that through our partners in Shropshire Screen we will soon be able to offer 3D screenings in Oswestry. We will be collecting the 3D kit this month and will be planning our summer screenings over the next few weeks so watch this space ...

We have also been working with young people at 'The Centre' on Oak Street to support them in setting up their own Film Club. Ther club will be open to young people aged 12 - 18 and will be part of the UK nationwide FilmClub scheme offering free film screenings to young people.

Film Screenings and events this May in Oswestry

                   The People's Film Collective (PFC)

                     Launch Night at The Ironworks

                        Thursday 2nd May 8:00pm

kinokulture, Eclectic & The Ironworks have teamed up to create PFC - The People's Film Collective.

The free launch night will take place at The Ironworks on 2nd May.

PFC is an informal get-together where casual and serious film makers can meet, show their latest output, exchange ideas and film-making knowledge.

The idea is that people simply turn up on the night to share their films on memory stick, DVD, CD, spool or tape. We will be able to screen most media including DVD, CD, files stored on USB stick in any common  digital format, Blu-ray, 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm cine film and even  stream videos direct from your YouTube and Vimeo channel. (If you want to show 35mm cine you will need to give us a hand to get the projector and tower up the stairs !)

We will also be screening the winners of the 2012 DepicT! short film competition which takes place during the Bristol Encounters Film Festival and will have information on how to enter DepicT! 2013.

So come along with your films on the night and get inspired.

if you have any queries please call us on 0845 2500517 or email :

The Attfield Theatre, The Guildhall, Bailey Head

Bruce Willis is back in another action packed Die Hard Movie ....

Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane travels to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack--unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist.

TWO  A Play by Jim Cartwight
Monday 20th - Saturday 25th May   7:45pm
The Attfield Theatre, The Guildhall, Bailey Head

The Attfield Theatre Company present their final play of the season, directed by company member Allison Heward.

The action unfolds over one night, in a pub, in the North of England. Two actors play all fourteen characters - the landlord and landlady, who appear to be at war behind the bar, and their eccentric regulars - each with a  story to tell.    Bolton born Jim Cartwright's plays are consistently performed around the world and have been translated into over thirty languages. They have won numerous awards, including Manchester Evening News' Best New Play, for TWO,  in 1989.    "The writing is brilliantly, surrealistically and comically poetic." Sunday Times    "This richly textured piece is an assured and highly entertaining show." Independent    "A sharply, salty, quickfire evocation of the surface gaiety and underlying melancholia of English pub life." Michael Billington, Guardian    "This extraordinary gifted and original voice.populates the space with broad humour, dry wit and often shudderingly moving poetry." Time Out    "It's hilariously funny, savagely sad, wistful, surprising and magical." Royal Exchange    Please note that ticket prices and the Box Office for Attfield Theatre productions are different than for our own film screenings.    The Box office for this production opens two weeks before the run. To book tickets please contact:    The Guildhall reception: 01691 680222 (Mon - Fri 9am - 5pm).  
The Best of British Theatre in a Cinema Near You

This House   a new play by James Graham

Monday 27th May  Doors open 6:30pm, Screening 7:00pm
The Attfield Theatre, The Guildhall, Bailey Head

It's 1974 and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain's political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread. Votes are won and lost by one, fist fights erupt in the bars, and ill MPs are hauled in to cast their votes.

It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and age-old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power.

biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to manoeuvre a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

James Graham's play has been nominated for two Olivier Awards, Best New Play and Best Director and quickly sold out both of its National Theatre runs with rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Please note we will be screening this as a recorded screening on Monday 27th May due to The Attfield Theatre's own production of 'Two' which will be in rehearsal during the live broadcast on 16th May.

Song For Marion  (PG)
Wednesday 29th May 1:00pm  (doors open 12:30pm)
Market Day Matinee

The Attfield Theatre, The Guildhall, Bailey Head

In British comedy 'Song for Marion', pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) hits an unlikely high note with wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) when he joins a local choir.

Everyone hopes that the experience will bring a touch of harmony to his life by curing his grumpy ways and bring him closer to son James (Christopher Eccleston)…but the curmudgeonly chorister soon goes head to head with the other members of the highly unconventional singing society.

I'm So Excited  (15)  Saturday 15th June  7:30pm

Camp, kitsch and deliciously entertaining, cult Spanish director Pedro Almodovar heads back to his wilder comedy roots with I'm So Excited!, a bright, breezy and frothy aircraft-set comedy.
OTHELLO by William Shakespeare

Thursday 26th September  doors open 6:30pm, Live broadcast 7:00pm
The Attfield Theatre, The Guildhall, Bailey Head

The National Theatre presents a major new production of William Shakespeare's celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy.

Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC's Hustle) takes the title role.

Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre's recent production of Hamlet.

Othello, newly married to Desdemona – who is half his age – is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favour of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.
