‘EARTH’ showing at 1.20pm

Over five years in the making, this epic chronicle of life on the planet Earth was shot by 40 different filmmaking teams across 200 different countries and stands as one of the greatest nature documentaries ever produced.

Originally a stunning BBC television programme, this special cinematic version is a trimmed down edit that lets you simply sit back and be blown away by some of the most beautiful imagery ever captured on film. Unmissable.

‘THE HOST’ showing at 3.30pm

Whereas Godzilla was a product of the fears of the nuclear age, so comes the environmental effect in ‘The Host.’ A creature, mutated from the dumping of toxic waste in Seoul’s Han River, rises from the depths and lays waste to the sprawling metropolis… only the mild mannered, snack bar opening Park family stand in it’s way.

Already one of the biggest films to come out of South Korea, the Host is a brilliantly entertaining creature feature with a non-too-subtle warning about the dangers of pollution.

Sunday 19th October
‘A CRUDE AWAKENING’ showing at 3.45pm

Produced and directed by award-winning European journalists and filmmakers Basil Gelpke and Ray McCormack, tells the story of how our civilization’s addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology.

Compelling, intelligent, and highly entertaining, the film visits with the world’s top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion – our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
