On Chesil Beach

Dir. Dominic Cooke | UK 2017 | 110 min | 15
Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, this sensitive love story focuses on a newlywed couple whose honeymoon ends in disaster.
It's the early 1960s, before the sexual revolution re-dealt the cards. Florence (Saoirse Ronan) and Edward (Billy Howle), despite being from drastically different backgrounds and virgins in every sense of the word, are in love and are newly married. They spend their Dorset honeymoon preoccupied and terrified by the upcoming consummation of their marriage, and we are invited to look back on their idyllic courtship as events lead to a shattering conclusion.
A beautifully precise and searching film fascinated by sex and the societal pressures that can come with physical intimacy, On Chesil Beach is quietly heartbreaking - and a definite awards contender.
Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)

We believe that mums and dads shouldn't have to miss out on great cinema, which is why we are now offering special daytime screenings just for them. Bring your under 3 for free and we'll create a friendly, half-lit and low sound atmosphere to keep them calm while you enjoy the film. And, as an added bonus, you get to pick the next film we screen for you.

Please note: the screening at 10:30 is the PARENT & BABY showing. There are no concessions available for this screening.
