9th October 2016 @ 4.00pm

Harrowbarrow & Metherell Village Hall, School Road, Harrowbarrow, Callington PL17 8BQ

Archive screening of Away to the West followed by Miracle Theatre’s TIN – The Movie.

West Cornwall, 1895. A once-glorious tin mine, on which the whole town has depended for generations, is on its last legs. A weather-beaten opera company arrives to give a performance of Beethoven’s “Fidelio” in the town hall and finds itself tangled up in a scam to offload worthless shares in the mine. When the mine unexpectedly yields up new treasures, melodrama starts to spill over into everyday life, reputations crumble and any notion of fair play is abandoned. The fate of the whole community rests on the courage of one feisty young maid.

Made in Cornwall and based on a true story, Miracle Theatre’s highly anticipated feature film stars Jenny Agutter, Dudley Sutton and Ben Luxon alongside Helen Bendell, Ben Dyson, Steve Jacobs, Dean Nolan, and Jason Squibb.

Pedal Powered screening in Torpoint
11th September 2016 @ 8.15pm

Maker with Rame Community Hall, PL10 1NB

Rider! (1945) from the BFIplayer
A lanky comedian entertains an audience of servicemen and women with a series of bicycle-related stunts and sight gags in this comedy curio. Released by the Colonial Film Unit in December 1945, the film was intended for overseas audiences. It offered those serving abroad a reminder of home and those in the colonies a (perhaps rather baffling) taste of British music hall entertainment.

Maker Camp (1966) from the SWFTA archive
Local scouts and cubs are on a fathers and sons’ weekend at Maker Camp. Cold showers, tinned food and constructing more than just wooden structures as this father-son team building gets underway in the well-known location at Maker.

Mamma Mia! Singalong
The story of a bride-to-be trying to find her real father told using hit songs by the popular ’70s group ABBA.
