Flicks in the Sticks


Having been under the umbrella of Leisure Five-0 for some years Fownhope Flicks in the Sticks has now grown up and works quite independently. It is, however, very much part of Arts Alive.

On the first Friday of every month, excepting July and August, we show a film as current as possible, or sometimes a classic gentle or comedic British film.  It is nearly always on the first Friday of the month, the exceptions being New Year’s Day and Easter, the entrance fee is only £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for minors under 16. We provide Magnum ice creams at £1.00, or free tea, coffee or hot chocolate in the interval.  We have now become a fixture on the social calendar of Fownhope and we need your support to keep this wonderful opportunity alive for everyone to enjoy.  If you would like any further information then please contact Pam Pettitt  on 01432 860065 or pamelajean1011@aol.com

7th Sep
The Greatest Showman (2017-PG) 105 mins

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted? Starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle William , Zac Efron
