Shoplifters (15)

We’re very pleased to be bringing you this year’s Palme d’Or winner at the Cannes film festival. We’ve screened a number of Koreeda’s films over the years and they never disappoint. This one, his best, is about a family of petty thieves who live together in a cramped apartment rented from a dodgy landlord. One day they find an apparently abandoned little girl and take her in – soon she is being trained to join in their money-making schemes but was she really abandoned?

Film Notes.

7.30pm in the Pavilion Arts Centre

Tickets £5 on the door

or in advance from the Buxton Opera House box office

Coming Soon ….

We’re picking great films for the coming weeks.

The last film in our 2018 season is going to be a lovely drama documentary about Argentina’s famous tango dancing couple Maria Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes. Our Last Tango (12A) is showing on 17th December.

We’re  opening our 2019 season on 7th January with Mike Leigh’s locally based historic Peterloo so pencil that into your diaries.

Nicolas Roeg died recently so we thought we’d show one of his excellent films. Walkabout (1971) is on January 14th.
